“Fido’s Market opened in January (this year), so we’re a whopping 6 months young. We are focused on all-natural and eco-friendly products, believing that what is better for your pet can (and should) also be better for the planet. This adventure began a couple of years ago, with me as a corporate burnout – quite dissatisfied with my job. Then one day, I literally woke up and knew “it’s not a job, it’s a business.” My husband and I spent several months researching business ideas and everything pointed us back to what we now know as Fido’s Market. Two years of writing business plans, researching products, looking at properties, designing the store…all led up to our opening in January. And not a day goes by that I don’t spend more time researching more products and looking for ways to improve the store and ways to improve my furry 4-legged friends’ health.
All of my life, dogs have had a major influence on me. And Zoe (my first Samoyed) changed my world. They say MAN’s best friend, but she was MY best friend. When she passed away from cancer, my world was flipped upside down. I couldn’t understand how that could happen. And then I learned. Even though this was four years ago, this was really the beginning of the path to Fido’s Market.
Every day, I go home from work and think “I can’t believe how awesome this is!” When people ask me if I ever have a bad day, I tell them “How could I? I get puppy kisses every day!”
We really do love THK. The food and the company!”
