MIAMI — Pet retail franchise Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming announced it will enter two new states next year with two new retail locations set to open in Massachusetts and one in Minnesota. The new stores will expand upon Woof Gang’s current footprint, which includes more than 300 retail locations open or under development throughout 26 states.

“This marks a thrilling milestone for Woof Gang and pet enthusiasts dedicated to providing the finest for their cherished companions in the suburban landscapes of Massachusetts and Minnesota,” said Ricardo Azevedo, chief executive officer at Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming. “Entering our 28th state of expansion, Massachusetts and Minnesota align seamlessly with our commitment to delivering exceptional care, superior products, and spreading joy to pets, making them ideal destinations to mark Woof Gang’s debut in the heart of New England and the Midwest.”

This latest move follows several expansions by Woof Gang. In just the past six months, the franchise has announced several new locations in South Florida, signed a deal for its 300th location, advanced its presence in Canada, and added Arizona, Idaho and Washington to its roster.
