Bubbly Paws - Franchise

Locally owned, locally loved since 2010! - Now offering franchises nationwide!

We are not an old-school franchise system. We listened to what franchisees are looking for in terms of support and processes and have tried to implement that in our model. We are here for you and we want to learn more about you and how we can work together to create mutual success.

When we created Bubbly Paws, the goal was to keep our stores bright and open, with a cool modern look. We also wanted our groomers to be seen while working, so all the grooming rooms have windows so customers can see what goes on.


Ten years ago, we recognized a gap in the market — we wanted an upscale, self-service dog grooming spot, but the only options were their bathtub or old, outdated salons. With the vision of creating an elevated self-service dog wash, we opened the first Bubbly Paws just outside of Minneapolis. After 10 years of fast-paced growth at 4 stores, we’re thrilled to announce that the Bubbly Paws name is officially a franchise!

If you’re searching for a supportive and growth-minded franchise opportunity, Bubbly Paws is excited to work with you. We’ve infused the best of proven franchise models with feedback from seasoned franchisees to design a system that sets leaders up for success. Get in touch with our team to tell us more about your goals — we’re looking forward to getting started.


We award franchises based on qualifications including, but not limited to:

  • Must LOVE dogs!
  • Be passionate about the Bubbly Paws brand.
  • General compatibility with the concept.
  • Retail, hospitality or customer service experience.
  • Development area availability.
  • Net worth of $250,000 and liquidity of $100,000
  • Want to grow with a growing company!
  • Love your community and want to make it better!
  • Ability to connect with and motivate others to do better and grow.
  • A great personality!

Most importantly, we are looking for people that share our love and passion for dogs and want to provide an outstanding service with a growing company!


We know this all sounds scary, but we have done it before and we are here for you! Before we go further, we would invite you into our flagship store, and spend a few hours getting to know us, our values, passion and culture. Then if you are interested, we can keep talking!

If your values and passion align with ours, we will keep moving forward and help with you everything you need to get going! Before your grand opening we will host training classes at our flagship store in Minneapolis, MN.

We strongly believe the best training is by doing, not showing.

We will train you in everything you need to be successful, from our company culture, marketing, grooming, how to find team members, and using PawTastic.app (our custom booking program). Come ready to work, the majority of our training program is hands on at one of our stores, we find that this is how people learn best!


Our Bubbly Paws management team will help you to find and design the perfect store. We will come to you and visit potential locations to help you find the ideal location. Then, we will work with your architect (our ours) to design “guts” of the store from plumbing, HVAC, retail areas and more.

We are here to help!

We will help you track the progress and make sure you stay on schedule for your grand opening! We’ve done this before and want to pass along what we know works!

Our Core Services


We’ve revolutionized the self-service bath customer experience. We provide everything customers need to make their pup look, smell and feel great! We have a membership model for “Scrub Club” which has unlimited baths for a low monthly cost.


The full service bath is designed for dogs that don’t need a full groom, but customers want the Bubbly Paws team to do all the work. This is also a very popular option with grooming clients in between grooms.


The Bubbly Paws groomers go the extra mile to make all the dogs look and feel great. We design the stores to provide a low stress grooming setting. We train the groomers to communicate what is best for the dog and what we can accomplish. At pick up, we also provide a report card to help communicate how the dog did.


So you’re interested in a Bubbly Paws franchise. That’s amazing! Thanks for taking this important step in your research.

We don’t require experience in franchising, or a background in dog grooming to join the Bubbly Paws family, but what you do need is a passion for delivering exceptional quality with an equally exceptional client experience. We are excited to chat more about this great opportunity!
