A national pet supplies retailer plans to open a new franchise in Coral Springs next year.
Pet Supplies Plus is scheduled to open at 9100 Wiles Road, within the Royal Eagle Plaza. An opening date was not available.
The retailer was founded in 1988 and currently operates more than 330 stories, including locations in Sunrise, Delray Beach, Hollywood, Lake Worth and Lake Park. The chain sells wet and dry pet food, chewable toys and grooming services. The Coral Springs location is expected to include a self-service dog wash station and grooming services such as haircuts, flea treatment and oral care.
Pet owners are projected to spend about $61 billion this year on pet grooming, food, medicine and other care, up from $58 billion in 2014, according to the American Pet Products Association.
Spending on food, the top category, is estimated to reach $23 billion.
The Coral Springs franchise will be run by Juliana and Paulo Lucchesi, a couple from Brazil who now live in Boca Raton.
Up to 20 people are expected to work at the upcoming store.
