Business Development Services
The JDog works on developing new product lines and new revenue streams that our franchise partners can take advantage of. Among many ideas we are working on is our evaluation of products to serve as the JDog Doggie Bowl – a micro-dumpster we can leave behind for homeowners to fill. Numerous other ideas are being pursued – we can’t share them or we might have to take military action!

In addition to new lines of business, we are also assessing the feasibility of other service lines we can franchise under the JDog brand, which our franchisees will have first dibs! We’re especially keen on service businesses where the Veteran and Veteran Family Member Exclusivity would be compelling. The sky is the limit here, and we are convinced that JDog can dominate any retail segment it enters, provided the business is highly profitable, has recurring revenue and is in high demand.
