  • On the Move for Your Pet

    When Kim Wilson went from groomer to basically managing the small grooming service she worked at, she watched both the business and the profits grow.

    Wilson decided she wanted to open her own grooming service and then the economy tanked. So she adjusted her dream, and taking a page from the TV show "Groomer Has It," she decided to open a mobile service.

    "In the TV show, they give away a van like this, so I even went to Wagon Tails in Granger, Ind., which they use in the TV show, to oversee the conversion," Wilson said. "No one has a service like this in Northwest Indiana. At first, startup costs were more for buying a van than it would be to lease a storefront. But after you consider overhead, in the long run, this is a lot cheaper."

    I love the name, nice website, nice article.

    Too bad more groomers don't list their "estimate" prices on the different breeds, this would prevent "sticker shock" when they call for an appt. I love it when clients contact me via my website, they already know the approximate price and they still want the appt, rather than hearing that they "need to talk with their husbands, then call me right back", which they don't.

    Happy Smooching
