Pet Valu: Your Pet. Your Brands. Your Store.

April 2, 2022

PET VALU has been providing pets with everything they need to live healthy, happy and active lives for more than 40 years.

In 1976, Geoffrey Holt founded PET VALU which is headquartered in Markham, Ontario. In 1987 they opened their first franchise and it has since grown to become Canada’s largest chain of small-format pet food and supply stores.

PET VALU has 635 store locations in Canada.

Today, there are 635 stores, including a franchise network with over 400 stores across Canada.

The company is owned by private equity firm Roark Capital Group. However, the Markham, Ontario-based PET VALU Canada is a separate, profitable company.

Franchise opportunities are available with PET VALU
As an established brand, with a solid customer base and a growing market, PET VALU franchises are great investments. But, be prepared to work, because the PET VALU franchise system requires the personal involvement of the franchisee in the day-to-day operation of the store.

The PET VALU family of stores includes PET VALU, Paulmac’s Pet Food and Bosley’s by PET VALU. Together, they form one of the largest pet food and supplies retail operations in North America.

In 2020, PET VALU reported $648 million in revenue, an increase from $574 million the prior year. PET VALU booked $29 million in net income last year, a four percent increase from a year earlier.

PET VALU partners with local shelters, rescues and charities for adoption events, in-store adoption (select stores only) and pet food bank programs. They also hold national donation drives and fundraising campaigns.

Over the past 10 years, PET VALU’s in-store fundraising programs have raised more than $17 million dollars for local animal rescues, shelters and charities. Its adoption events have found forever homes for more than 32,000 pets.

PET VALU is the national charitable partner for Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides and has sponsored five rescue transportation or mobile health clinics through its Giving Back Project grant program.
