Kmimos, your dog's home away from homeBy Elliot Bullman
Mexican company that wants to care for your beloved four-legged friends
For dog lovers that worry about kennelling their dog while going on a trip or leaving their dog alone while they are at work, Kmimos seeks to be the answer by offering a network of certified caregivers who receive the animals in their homes, with the guarantee of a veterinary care policy.
The dog stays at a home away from home, with services such as veterinary care coverage, as well as photos and videos daily for owners to monitor how their pet is doing.
Currently, Kmimos has 3,000 clients and a network of 359 caregivers, which are expected to reach 1,200 in July and by the end of 2017 would total 3,000.
The company started operations in Guadalajara and has since expanded to most major cities around Mexico.
Rob Cuevas, co-founder of the company, reports that this year Kmimos expects a turnover of between three and four million dollars, but due to the exponential growth it has achieved, it aims to gross sales to 15 million dollars in 2018.
The company is responsible for certifying caregivers, who performs psychometric tests and examination of basic veterinary knowledge.
The company charges a 20 percent commission to the caretakers, who can get income of between 15 thousand and 30 thousand pesos per month. The rates are set by them and are around 220 pesos per night. Some offer training on their own.
