Read this article to find out Mark’s story as a Barking Mad franchisee!

Mark bought his business at 55 years old having worked in IT and Sales.

Barking Mad Franchise

“I was looking for a new direction. We already have four mad, but very happy Yorkshire Terriers so the idea of building a business out of our love for dogs seemed a great idea.

We visited Barking Mad HQ in the Lake District and were immediately impressed with the quality and depth of the organisation and the belief and confidence of both the owners and the staff at Barking Mad. The businesses ethos and commitment to making their customers dogs the centre of everything they do and the total commitment to the quality of the customer and their dogs experience won us over completely.

We are more successful than we ever imagined we would be. This is because Head Office have provided us with all the tools we need from the initial and ongoing training through to the consistent support with the Customer Contact Centre to help field our calls, and all the systems to keep us on track.

Every month there is a new marketing project to help us generate customers and hosts along with lots of head office driven initiatives too, most recently the national TV ad. We find the format provided a great way to record our activity acting as a sanity check to ensure we have done everything and by following it we have achieved amazing results – It’s our recipe for success!

We love delivering this great service to customers in our area and meeting so many different dog breeds and personalities!
