Business Story

Why this business was started

Sole distributor in Canada, Chubbs Bars Canada sells a biodegradable purifying pet shampoo bar safe for all dirty pets.

No sulphates, parabens, formaldehyde, d'limonene, or essential oils. Chubbs Bars is a clarifying shampoo for a super clean finish, yet gentle on skin, hair and hands.

Chubbs Bars pet shampoo is all natural, made with organic ingredients, hypo-allergenic, and a healthier alternative to liquid shampoos . It's unique shampoo bar shape eliminates down-the-drain waste, packaging, and is ideal for storage, shipping, and traveling.

Chubbs Bars has tremendous growth potential and appeal because it is easy to use, for pet professionals, pet fanciers, and pet owners. This includes cats, dogs, horses, cavies, etc. Currently Chubbs Bars has a 7k social media following and was nominated as Barkleigh Product of the Year in 2013.

The reason of selling this business

Lack of time. My studio continues to grow rapidly and I have not had the time to do marketing or develop new retail streams for Chubbs Bars. It has been very profitable as the mark-up is 55%.

What's involved in running this business

Ordering from supplier, importing into Canada, fulfilling orders, shipping orders. It should also include advertising, marketing, and developing new retail streams in the pet industry.

This business was founded: about 3 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 3 hours per week

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    Definitely marketing. I have done none, zero, and still the business grows year over year. Great opportunity for someone with some marketing savvy. Also would explore developing new niches through retailers and trade shows.

    Skills to have

    A Canadian distributor should have the business within Canada. Familiarity with Canadian laws pertaining to importing and packaging. Inventory management. Marketing.

    Janet W.Current store owner
    As a certified pet grooming professional for over 25 years, I have tried many products. Chubbs Bars is an outstanding organic clarifying shampoo bar. It gets great results and the clients love it. The Canadian distributorship to other pet professionals was an excellent side business and it is the only product I use in my grooming studio.
