His most recent franchise venture is Dogtopia, dog daycare, which in the three short years since his acquisition has grown from 20 franchises to 82 with an additional 161 in the pipeline. In addition to an investor, earlier this year Peter became a multi-unit franchisee investing in 12 Dogtopia locations for the greater Seattle, WA region and is currently in the site-selection process for 5 locations in Vancouver, Canada.
Dogtopia was one of the early pioneers in the dog daycare industry, and has had over 15 years to refine and perfect the model, including the model used for franchisees. As both an investor and franchisee, Thomas truly believes in the brand, the company, and the purpose it serves. Dogtopia is experiencing impressive growth and the demand for the brand, flexibility of the model and the availability of prime territories is only helping fuel growth. He believes there has never been a better time to to franchise with Dogtopia.
