Pet Evolution Inks Regional Development Deal in Northern Virginia

Premium, health-focused dog food & supply brand to bring booming concept to Virginia.




(PRESS RELEASE) WOODBURY, MN – Pet Evolution, a locally owned, healthy pet supply store dedicated to providing the highest quality food, treats, grooming, self-wash and mobile nail trims, is taking strides to introduce its wellness-focused pet brand to new markets across the nation. The brand recently signed a development deal to bring 20 new locations to Northern Virginia.

With four locations currently open in its home state of Minnesota, Pet Evolution is making its first entry into Virginia after recently announcing its franchise opportunity. The expansion efforts will be led by experienced multi-unit operator, Delmon (Del) Robertson.

“Pet Evolution is a brand I am really excited to become a part of as I resonate with the standard of pet care they provide,” said Del. “I look forward to contributing to Pet Evolution’s expansion on the East Coast and providing quality care, services and products to the pet owners of Northern Virginia.”

The Northern Virginia Region is home to over 2.5 million people and is projected to surpass 3-million people by 2040, making it one of the fastest growing and most diverse communities in the United States. Offering a unique combination of historic colonial and cosmopolitan skylines, and the perfect mix of history, culture, nature, dining and shopping, Northern Virginia is an ideal dwelling for many people and their pets. As of 2020, 55.5% of Virginia households own a pet. With Pet Evolution’s unique features such as self-serve dog washes and mobile nail trims, opening locations throughout Northern Virginia will fill a demand in the market for innovative and high-quality pet nutrition, grooming and supply needs.

“We’re thrilled to be kicking off the new year by welcoming Del to the Pet Evolution team,” stated Peter Carlson, President of Pet Evolution Franchising, LLC. “His commitment to the franchise’s success in the Northern Virginia region is unparalleled. We can’t wait to help the pet owners of these communities with their pets’ health, food, grooming and bathing needs.”

Pet Evolution is actively seeking single, multi-unit, and regional development franchise partners. While they encourage those with franchise experience to apply, their approachable system is designed to accommodate first time franchisees as well. Above all else, Pet Evolution is searching for partners that they have a love for animals. Including the franchise fee, the initial investment for a Pet Evolution location ranges between $450,000 to $598,550.
