Pet Depot Franchise

Pet Store

In 1991 the first Pet Depot opened in Santa Monica, Ca.

Named Katie’s PET DEPOT after the founder’s daughter, the store
specialized in premium pet foods, pet grooming and quality supplies for
all kinds of companion animals. Customers loved the expert pet advice
and personal caring service, so the store grew quickly to one of the
best places to shop for pet supplies. In fact in 1992, Katie’s was crowned "L.A.’s Best
Pet Shop” by Los Angeles Magazine, and was bestowed several more
recognitions over the years by local news channels as the "in” place for
pets and their owners to shop.

Winning customer loyalty was easy, as we really do care about your pets and their health.

In 1992 Katie’s added a second location in Westwood, then acquired the Mar
Vista location in 1994 and grew again by opening the large format store
in West Los Angeles in 1997.

The PET DEPOT format was proof that a
quality independent pet retailer could compete and grow in a big box
world. In fact, most of our customers preferred the personal service at
Katie’s PET DEPOT over the impersonal clerks at the larger stores in the

To ensure that each PET DEPOT location maintains the
personal touch for every customer, we decided to franchise. This allows
us to maintain the best relationships with you, while providing the
competitive pricing of a larger chain.

At PET DEPOT we believe in
pride of ownership, so we incorporate the name of individual franchise
owners into our logo. Each of these individual owners receives extensive
training and has pets of their own, so they can provide the same expert
advice and service of our original PET DEPOT stores. We know that you
will appreciate shopping at a locally owned business for your pets needs
and the expert pet advice each owner will give you.

PET DEPOT Veterinary Group was founded in 2009 in the Los Angeles area as a
full-service veterinary hospital. The community had been shopping at PET
stores for quality pet food and supplies since 1991. Providing
quality healthcare to pets was the next step in our dedication to the
well-being of animals. Our company has grown to over 30 locations
throughout the U.S. and Canada (and counting), with hybrid
retail/hospital locations across eight U.S. states.
