Have you ever looked at your existing business and wondered if it could be more than it already is? Even if your current business is an established success, you can do something to make it a bigger hit — add a dog wash!
What Is a Dog Wash Station?
You might be asking yourself, “Why should I add a dog washing station to my business?” If that question sounds familiar, you can rest easy because we have all the information you need to decide whether installing a dog washing station is the right move for your business.
Dog washing stations are new phenomenons that are popping up at businesses throughout the United States seemingly overnight. Constructed with aluminum or stainless steel, these durable units are self-contained and include a tub, a sprayer, a variety of soaps and a payment processor. Thanks to their eye-catching graphics and informational signage, dog washing stations are easily recognizable and simple for pet owners to use.
When you think about a business like a car wash, it’s easy to understand why a self-serve pet wash is an ideal complement for the existing operation. A self-contained pet wash uses the same kind of installations for utilities, like water, for example. If you already order supplies for your car wash from JBS Industries, you won’t even have to find a new supplier for your dog wash because we sell wholesale dog wash soaps and tools. JBS Industries is also a dog wash chemical supplier, so we’ve got you covered there, too.
If space is tight at your location, you can still install a dog washing station. These pre-built units have a relatively small footprint, making them a great addition even when physical space is at a premium.
Four Benefits of Adding a Dog Wash to Your Car Wash
Adding a self-serve pet wash to your car wash can benefit you as well as your customers. As a business owner, you can enjoy the passive income your pet wash will generate. Because pet owners will wash their dogs themselves, your dog washing station can operate around-the-clock, enabling you to make money even when you’re not there. Beyond having a staff member make sure your pet wash is clean and well-stocked, operating a dog washing station won’t drive up your labor costs as it adds to your bottom line.
Installing a dog washing station at your car wash can bring attention to your location. It can also attract new clients to your business. Having a pet wash also enables you to partner with a whole spectrum of businesses that may not have wanted to engage in cross-promotional activities before, such as vet clinics, pet-related charities, doggie daycares and pet supply stores.
Pet owners located near your car wash will also enjoy some meaningful benefits if you install a dog washing station such as:
Saving valuable time by having two services performed at one location.
Bathing their dogs without having to worry about clogging the drains at home.
Having adequate space to bathe their pup.
Saving money — instead of paying full price at a grooming shop, pet owners can bathe their dog for a fraction of that cost by visiting your dog washing station.
