Ruffin's Pet Centres Franchise

Full-service pet stores

Ruffin's Pet Centre started in a small town in Southern Ontario. The founder of the company opened a retail outlet after observing first-hand the success of a discount pet food chain. By combining the best features of a pet store with the benefits of a pet food store - the store was an immediate success. The pet industry proved to a growing enterprise and led to franchising, with the first store sold in September 1986 in Grimsby, Ontario. Since then we have added a 10,000 sq ft warehouse, hundreds of private label products and the most comprehensive line of pet food in the industry. After decades of success Ruffin's continues to provide pet owners the best products, selection and price. Ruffin's also provides a fantastic opportunity for pet business ownership with two retail pet franchise concepts available. Overall Ruffin's is the number one choice for success with pets!
