The Cat Butler Franchise Questions
How much does The Cat Butler® franchise cost?
The initial franchise fee costs £7,000 and includes a wealth of benefits, support and advice. We also recommend that you set some money aside to cover additional costs as part of the start-up process - we provide plenty of advice on this and can even help you raise finance if needed.
The ongoing support services provided to franchisees are funded from the management and marketing fees, both of which are paid monthly. Our ongoing fee structure is turnover related. We do not charge any fixed monthly fees. We grow together, providing the support required at each stage of your business development.
We want you to develop a profitable business that will enable you to generate an attractive level of personal income and have an increased capital value if you decide to sell the business at some point in the future.
What can a Cat Butler Franchisee earn?
How much you earn as a Cat Butler franchisee will really depend on how much effort and available time you have to commit to your business - a typical Cat Butler franchisee can generate an annual net trading profit of between £35K and £48K per annum.

What experience do I need?
You don't need to have previously worked as a cat sitter or have experience running your own business. It goes without saying, though, you must be mad about cats and be professional, reliable, organised and happy to be flexible about your hours of work. Most clients are flexible to some degree about the times that their cats are visited while they are away and so it's possible to schedule your visits around other aspects of your life and home and family if required. You will receive full training in all areas of the business. You will use our proven business model.
