MIAMI — Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming shared it has significantly expanded its footprint by entering two new states and signing a deal for its 300th retail location, meaning that the brand has taken over half of the continental United States.

During this past year, Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming has rapidly expanded its presence from 17 states to 26, including Arizona, California, Indiana, Illinois, Idaho and Washington. The brand’s latest ventures include new locations under development in Prospect, Ky., and Lafayette, La., with both stores set to open in July 2024.

According to the brand, its significant expansion is a reflection of its commitment to provide pets — and their owners — with exceptional grooming services, exclusive gourmet treats, and all-natural pet food and supplies to support overall pet health and wellness. The 300th retail store will be located in Miami’s Brickell district.

“As we celebrate this incredible achievement of entering two new states, along with the signing of our 300th franchise agreement, we remain deeply grateful to our loyal customers, dedicated franchisees and passionate employees who have made this journey possible,” said Ricardo Azevedo, chief executive officer at Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming. “We look forward to growing and strengthening our network of stores nationwide as we continue spreading love and joy in the pet communities we serve.”

In addition to its rapid expansion throughout the United States, Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming has also set its eyes abroad, announcing its first international retail location in Canada earlier this year. The brand currently has three new stores under development and one set to open in Oakville, Ontario, this December.
