Camp Bow Wow® Recognized as Franchising Leader in Growth & Development


WESTMINSTER, Colo., Oct. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Camp Bow Wow®, the largest and leading doggy day care and boarding franchise, received top honors from Franchise Update Media's second annual Franchise Innovation Awards. Recognized as the "Franchise Growth & Development Leader of the Year," Camp Bow Wow was celebrated for its implementation of immersive trainings and dog enrichment programs for its high-growth franchise network.

The prestigious achievement marks the success of Camp Bow Wow's innovative programming to drive franchise owner engagement and revenue growth. Through the roll out of training technologies for interactive courses, Camp Bow Wow saw a 94% franchise engagement rate with 2,270 courses completed by Camp Counselors at locations across North America. The company additionally focused on opportunities to enhance the value of day care and boarding, while raising revenue streams for franchise owners. System performance highlights from the dog enrichment programs include 82% of franchises engaging, and positive impacts on the average monthly revenue per Camp.

Camp Bow Wow was also acknowledged with multiple first place honors from the Franchise Innovation Awards earlier this year, including "Most Innovative Building Design, Remodel or Prototype" for its lobby redesign and "Most Innovative Use of Technology" for its successful transition to digital e-learning. The premier dog care franchise was then selected as one of four finalists to present during the Franchise Leadership & Growth Conference on October 14th, where it was named the "2020 Franchise Growth & Development Leader of the Year."

The Franchise Innovation Awards recognizes franchise leaders that have created and implemented the most original and successful strategies and tactics. The 2020 winners were selected by a jury of seven judges, who evaluated on the criteria of innovation, objectives and results to identify the top franchise brands driving revenue growth, engaging consumers and expanding their franchisee network.
