Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming had the official opening of its first Canadian store in Oakville, Ontario.
The company said the Oakville location is the first step in a larger plan by Woof Gang to "paint Canada pink." The brand is slated to open five additional stores in the Greater Toronto area this year.
“The opening of the Oakville location marks a significant step in our larger plan to 'paint Canada pink,' and I'm particularly thrilled because, after my previous experience at Tim Hortons, I've personally witnessed the passion that franchise owners in Canada bring to their businesses,” said Ricardo Azevedo, CEO of Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming who previously served as president of Tim Hortons USA,
“Woof Gang's commitment to providing exclusive, gourmet treats and superior grooming services aligns perfectly with the dedication and care that I’ve seen in franchise owners in Canada," continued Azevedo. "We are not just opening a store; we are building a pet haven for the community, and I look forward to spreading love and joy to the pets of Oakville and beyond."
Woof Gang said the company is designed to provide the best grooming experience, the most exquisite and delicious treats, and a heartfelt commitment to pet communities. To celebrate the grand opening of the Oakville location, Woof Gang is giving back to its newest community with a celebration that will take place in March and will feature raffles, giveaways, special prizes and an opportunity for 20 lucky dogs to win free treats for a year.
