In 1978, Mary Grossman was a single mother raising her daughter when they decided to move to Huntington Beach, Ca. There she saw an opportunity to purchase a small pet store. At the time, she had one part-time groomer and was working seven (7) days a week from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. After working many long hours, Mary's business grew into a very successful pet grooming and retail operation. Mary's commitment to the highest quality motivated her to continuously search for the best products. When she met Joseph Meeks, a chemist, her search was over and together, they came up with formulas that produce products that were safe and effective for pets.
