We believe it is important to give our franchise owners options, which is why we offer two franchise models:

Model One (Leasehold Improvement) involves the franchise owner leasing a property and renovating the property to our franchise specifications. Model One is the most affordable option and we estimate the cost to lease a property and do the build out will range between $584,415 and $950,370. The Ark Pet Spa & Hotel requires properties to be between 6,000 to 10,000 square feet and it is recommended to have 50-75 dog kennels and 9-12 cat condos per location.

Model Two (Ground Up) allows the franchise owner to purchase a property and build from ground up using our specific property and building layouts. We know the value of real estate and we would like to extend the option to own the land their business sits on. This is a larger investment and we estimate the cost to purchase land and build an Ark will be between $912,155 and $1,596,750. The Ark Pet Spa & Hotel requires properties to be between  6,000 to 10,000 square feet  and it is recommended  to have  50-75 dog kennels and 9-12 cat condos  per location.

The numbers provided are estimates based off our 2018 bids. Several factors will affect the final cost of a franchise owners buildout including size, premium fixtures, premium finishes, contractors hired, land cost, building costs, land cost, and rent.
