Postman opens pet franchise

Here at the Franchise Blog, we like to take a lighter look at things every now again. Examining the difficulties in the global economy can be a grind, so it’s nice to highlight a positive story, and they don’t get quirkier than this: a retired Memphis mailman has opened a dog day care business.

That’s right. Dennis Diffie and his wife Terrie opened a Camp Bow Wow franchise two weeks ago. Dennis obviously has buried the hatchet with man’s best friend, who certainly terrorized him during his career as a postman. It’s nice to see that franchising has provided him with a way to make peace with canine race.

“We looked for buildings to rent and possibly renovate,” Diffee told the Memphis Daily News. “The cost was anywhere from $100,000 to $200,000 to put it in somebody else’s building so we just decided to build our own.”

Diffie, who was considering buying a pizza franchise. has made a big investment in Camp Bow Wow and is already reaping the rewards. Customers have been enjoying Camp Bow Wow’s technological innovations, which include laptops that allow them to check on their pets from long distances.

If a former mailman can start a second career with Camp Bow Wow, then almost anyone can enjoy success through franchising in this dog-eat-dog world.
