Business Story

Why this business was started

The product has several USPs and as a user myself I was constantly asked where I got it. Therefore I started selling to meet demand.

The reason of selling this business

It is at the point where it needs investment beyond my capabilities to grow to reach its potential. I also was only looking for running a business part time and with the opportunity this store offers it could grow beyond that which is a commitment I do not wish to make. We are UK based but have a global business which include a strong market in the USA and Canada where we see huge growth potential.

What's involved in running this business

Ordering from suppliers, fulfilling orders and promoting the business are the main activities. Updating the Shopify page is so quick and easy. It is a very seasonal business so more time is needed in the winter months than the summer months

This business was founded: almost 7 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 25 hours per week

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    The business has massive potential with investment. Currently we only stock the small breed range and do all other sizes for special order which can be off putting to customers due to the wait time. If all sizes were held in stock this would grow the business significantly. We have also achieved our success mainly through Facebook so there is significant growth via external sources and other social media platforms too. In addition we focus mainly on brand we have UK rights and are the sole seller so there is massive opportunity to expand the product ranges beyond this. We also only use a basic shopify template so update the look and feel of the store will undoubtedly bring in additional revenue. Finally there is the option to expand via wholesale with the right investment to stockholding.

    Skills to have

    Its an easy store to run but knowledge of how the unique features and benefits of the products are a major selling point to all dog owners is really the key to success.

    After many years in senior retail roles I started this business due to using the The product I sell myself and everyone wanting to buy it, hence I set up as a sole trader. We have grown strongly but for it to reach its full potential it needs investment that I am not able to make.
