Heidi Ganahl has truly built a business after her passion: Dogs. She has grown her business from one location in Englewood, CO, to a multi-state franchise that hit $50 million in sales for 2010. In our conversation, you’ll hear how she overcame personal tragedy, stuck to her vision for her business, and why she is called “Top Dog”.
Heidi is not only a fabulous business person, but a fun and energetic leader of her team. Heidi speaks to high school and college students across the country sharing her passion for pets and for business, as well as being seen on Joan Rivers’ How’d You Get so Rich, Big Idea with Donny Deutch, The Today Show, and a ton of print publications.
The Camp Bow Wow brand continues to grow at a fast clip with over 150 franchises open, 250 franchises awarded, and a wonderful charity foundation. Our goal is to reach 500 franchises awarded, 250 camps open, 250 Home Buddies operating, and $100 million in system sales by the end of 2012. She still loves waking up every day and taking on the next business challenge, even after ten years of drama, excruciating decisions and crazy long hours. Heidi is a fabulous person, and you will enjoy hearing her story.
