      Every shelter cat has a future owner somewhere out in the world waiting to love and cherish them, even if they haven’t yet met.

      At Orlando Cat Café, we designed our business and our franchise model to help cats and owners make that vital connection, provide an essential community service, and transform lives …all in a highly appealing, welcoming café setting.

      A Curious Tale

      Our cat café franchises were built around a simple concept: create a partnership directly between shelters and café owners to establish custom-built spaces developed with guest and cat comfort — and hygienic, responsible café management — foremost in mind.

      It’s a business approach that’s helped make us Florida’s longest-running and fastest-growing cat café brand and aided us in our mission to be an agent of paw-sitive change for shelter cats and kittens across the U.S.

      Why Own an Orlando Cat Café Franchise?

      Own a franchise that transforms lives every day.

      We run our business as a calling. Orlando Cat Café is dedicated to philanthropic and guest service, wrapped in a franchise structure designed for growth.

      Close working relationships with key players. We partner directly with shelters and café owners to create a virtuous cycle that brings in customers, drives sales, and leads to more adoptions.

      State-of-the-art facilities. We design our locations with separate air systems, complete with double-door airlocks, for cats and café to keep smells and allergens out of the food service area and allow the café owner to serve a robust menu instead of being limited to selling only packaged goods.

      We have a track record of growth and staying power. We were the first cat café established in Florida. We’ve seen steady growth and have received extensive media attention throughout our development.

      Becoming an Orlando Cat Café franchise owner aligns you with a brand that’s fur real. We’re ready to help and ready to grow, and that gives you the tools to help make it all happen.

      Industry Data

      Essential Data on the Cat Café Industry

      Shelter cats need our help and love to live long, happy lives. It’s a fact that’s aiding the rise of the cat café franchise nationwide.

      Cats enter shelters at a higher rate than dogs, with approximately 3.2 million cats entering U.S. shelters every year.¹

      Life in a shelter can significantly impact a cat’s life. Over the past year, 330,000 shelter cats were euthanized — again at a higher rate than shelter dogs.²

      The number of cats in shelters nationwide continues to grow, fueling an ongoing capacity crisis that must be addressed for the good of the shelters and their residents.³
