Client Spotlight – Vanity Fur

Check out our most recent Q&A below with Jean Arellano, founder of Vanity Fur! They’re all about giving our furry friends the safest and most comfortable grooming experience. This interview is part of our SMB Client Spotlight series, where we highlight our clients’ franchising journeys and their partnership with SMB Franchising Advisors.

In a few sentences, can you describe what your brand does and what your company is all about?
Vanity Fur offers SAFE & COMFORTABLE pet grooming for dogs and cats. We are mobile and come to your home or your office. Our service creates a low-anxiety experience for all pets.

Why did you choose to franchise your business?
I wanted as many pets as possible to have a safe & comfortable grooming experience. I was never able to keep up with the demand of this business. I also wanted people to enjoy the time and freedom of owning a Vanity Fur business.

Why did you choose to partner with SMB Franchise Advisors?
I tried to franchise in 2017 and had a negative experience and when I decided to try it again, I was referred to SMB. I worked with them and got my franchise company set up correctly. I like knowing that I am never really alone in the franchise arena with SMB by my side.

How many units did you have before SMB, and how have you grown following the partnership? Can you provide some details about your brand’s growth and development?
I had my corporate location and zero franchises before SMB. After my first year of working with SMB, my operation grew to have 2 franchises.

What advice do you have for people looking to franchise?
There is so much to learn in franchising. You will want to have a team like SMB along the way.

Is there anything else you’d like for us to share about you and/or your brand?
Vanity Fur is looking forward to continued growth with pet-loving business-minded owners. Check us out at to learn more!
