Press release:

Wag N’ Wash, the emerging self-wash, grooming and natural pet food franchise, makes brand history with its first corporate store in Michigan. Located at 353 N. Maple Rd. in Ann Arbor, this serves as the flagship store for the up-and-coming franchise brand. As Wag N’ Wash puts an aggressive franchise development strategy into motion, this location will serve as the template for all future stores.

In February of 2022, Wag N’ Wash was acquired by PSP Group, LLC which is also the parent company of Pet Supplies Plus, the largest independent pet franchise in North America with over 700 stores across the U.S. Since then, Wag N’ Wash has doubled in store count with 25 locations currently open and 40 more in various stages of development. Although separate entities, the brands are rooted in and operate from the same proven business model and have the billion-dollar backing of 30+ years of franchise and industry experience.

“We are on a positive trajectory at Wag N’ Wash with no intentions of slowing down,” said Chris Rowland, CEO of Wag N’ Wash and Pet Supplies Plus. “Pet Supplies Plus is a proven brand, and we’re proud to be backing Wag N’ Wash as it marches forward in its next era of success.”

The individuality of each store design is key for both Wag N’ Wash and Pet Supplies Plus as it reinforces that each franchise store is individually owned and operated – not a small part of a large conglomerate. Previously being a nail salon, the Wag N’ Wash team converted the 4,800-square-foot space into its newest prototype store with a design that captures the spirit of this emerging brand and the community it serves. Ann Arbor is known for its progressive nature that still embodies small-town hospitality, both which are characteristics of the innovative and community-minded brand that is Wag N’ Wash.

Wag N’ Wash will celebrate with a formal grand opening event at the end of September, complete with weekend discounts, thousands of event giveaways, free pet washes and more.
