More development planned for Petland Mexico in 2009

Petland, Inc. is pleased to announce that Petland Mexico recently opened it's first store in Mexico City, February 19, 2009. Petland Mexico master franchisors, brothers Moses & Dan Harari, serve as operators of the pet store.

"We welcome the opportunity to add Mexico to our growing international family," said Petland President Frank Difatta. "It's rewarding to work with a team that is passionate and shares our visions and goals." Despite various cultural and language differences between American and Mexican consumers, the basics of customer service, animal care and presentation are universal. "The Mexico store's operating system is the most similar to the United States out of all of our international locations," said Brian Winslow, Regional Operations Director of Petland, Inc.

Eighteen months after their start with Petland, the Harari brothers are thrilled to bring the Petland experience to Mexico and to uphold the company's mission of matching the right pet with the right person and meeting the needs of both.

"We love pets as well as the Petland system," said Dan Harari. "It is great to be with a company that provides this kind of support." Petland Mexico plans on opening more Petland retail locations in 2009 in Mexico City.

Petland, Inc. is a franchise operation with more than 200 quality, full service, retail pet centers across the United States, Canada, Japan, China, and South Africa. Petland is ranked among Entrepreneur magazine's "Franchise 500." For more information on Petland, please visit the company's Web site at
