Nine locally-owned Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming locations cater to customers and their pets with expertise and care
Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming, the U.S. leader in specialty pet retail and grooming, will celebrate the opening of their newest store in Raleigh’s Brier Creek neighborhood this month. Additional Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming locations in Brennan Station and Flowers Plantation will open in August, bringing the total number of Raleigh area stores to nine.
Each Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming store is a locally-owned franchise that serves the head-to-tail needs of pets with a personal touch. “Raleigh’s neighborhood pet store” provides professional grooming, healthy pet foods, gourmet treats and supplies for complete pet care, wellness and pampering.
“Our expansion in the Raleigh market demonstrates our long-term confidence in and commitment to the region,” said Paul Allen, Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming CEO. “Our local franchise owners have generated remarkable success and brand loyalty, and they serve Raleigh customers and their pets through community-focused, neighborhood stores. They have a passion for providing exceptional pet grooming services and they are experts on the healthy pet foods and quality products that they carry.”
The Brier Creek store grand opening kicks off on Sunday, July 18 at noon. The first 20 customers in the store will receive free Woof Gang Bakery gourmet dog treats for a year. From July 18 to 25, customers can enter to win a raffle for free pet food for a year.
With an ongoing mission to support local pet communities, as part of this grand opening, Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming will donate 1,000 pounds of pet food to Odin’s Orphans, a not-for-profit, 501(c)3 animal rescue organization serving Nash County, North Carolina.
Sara Giruzzi and Arti Jethwa are the owners of the new Brier Creek store, as well as locations in Wakefield, Charlotte and Jacksonville. Sara, with her business partner and professional pet groomer Louise Bass, will open a new store in Clayton (Flowers Plantation) in August.
Raleigh residents Michael and Elise Morales are the owners of five successful area Woof Gang locations (Raleigh Village District, Brennan Station, Gateway Plaza, Apex and Cary). They are passionate about the quality and service associated with the Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming brand and have built some of the top stores in the company, achieving record annual sales and receiving several accolades for professional pet grooming.
