It wasn’t always franchise
You know, I first started as a customer at Pet Evolution. Four years ago. I walked in the door, and I thought, “oh, this looks, feels, tastes, and acts like a franchise.” The branding and the whole customer experience felt like a franchise. So, when I asked and inquired about the fact, they told me that they were independent. Truthfully, that was surprising. Fast forward to about a year ago, last summer, my fourth dog, a standard poodle by the name of Leo, was going through all kinds of problems nutritionally with his wellness. I turned to Pet Evolution for help since they specialize in nutrition for dogs and cats. A woman named Kylie took me under her arm, and she educated me on the crucial differences between feeding your dog properly with good food versus not. That’s how it started.
