Pet Evolution Sets Sights on Denver to Continue National Expansion

Premium, health-focused dog food and supply store seeks to expand booming concept in Denver area.




(PRESS RELEASE) WOODBURY, MN — Pet Evolution, a locally owned, healthy pet supply franchise dedicated to providing the highest quality food, treats, grooming, self-wash and mobile nail trims, is continuing its mission to introduce its wellness-focused services to new communities across the country. The brand recently announced that it is continuing expansion into the Denver market by offering franchise opportunities in the city and its surrounding areas.

Colorado’s prominence in housing a significant number of dedicated dog owners makes it the perfect destination to achieve its objectives to enter the Denver market. Nearly 66% of U.S. households own a pet. Colorado tops the list of states with the most devoted dog owners and the city’s pawed population (approx. 158,000) outweighs the child population (approx. 140,000). Pet Evolution aims to enter this market by the end of 2023 and in total open 20-30 new locations across Denver and its suburbs.

The Colorado expansion efforts have already established interest from franchisees in this market. Mike and Cathy Ehrenfeucht will be leading the Denver expansion and are looking to open their first Pet Evolution location in Douglas County, just south of the state’s largest city, Denver.

“At Pet Evolution, we believe that every pet deserves a vibrant and fulfilling life. That’s why we’re excited to expand our presence in Colorado, a state that shares our passion for pet well-being and embraces a diverse and thriving pet community,” said Rian Thiele, Co-Founder of Pet Evolution.

“We are actively seeking partners who are equally committed to innovation, compassion, and elevating the standard of care for pets. Together we can enrich the lives of pets and their owners across the beautiful landscape of Colorado.”

Pet Evolution is 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 have a love for animals. Including the franchise fee, the initial investment for a Pet Evolution location ranges between $450,000 to $676,550.

About Pet Evolution

Pet Evolution was founded in 2012 by friends Rian Thiele and Mike Osborn, after both having watched their childhood dogs suffer through the itchy paws, chronic ear infections, and multiple vet trips of undiagnosed food allergies.

The brand promise is to improve the lives of pets in local communities by carrying only high-end, select pet food products. Full-service grooming appointments are available and a premium self-serve dog wash option for those who need frequent, quick and easy dog baths.
