Territory: The typical Territory contains a population of approximately 200,000 to 300,000.

Franchisees will not receive an exclusive territory. The territory is protected to the extent that the franchisor will not award an Aussie Pet Mobile Franchise to be located within the Territory or operate an Aussie Pet Mobile Franchise in the Territory itself, as long as you are in full compliance with the Franchise and other agreements and the Manuals.
