Company History

PetShopBowl was founded in 2010 by couple Adam Taylor and Lexi Tamasan. After being unemployed the pair decided to turn their lives around and start a business together. The idea of PetShopBowl came from Adams personal experience; His mother suffers from chronic arthritis and struggled to carry heavy bags of pet food and so PetShopBowl was created with the intention of helping less able customers and is dedicated to making a positive impact on the industry. Adam said "My goal was to find something I am passionate about so going to work was not a bore but something I look forward too" and then "success will be a by-product of that passion and energy". The business was started in London but after outgrowing their premises PetShopBowl relocated to a warehouse in Stratford-Upon-Avon. They currently employ 6 staff and have hopes of doubling this amount in 2013. We have reached our target of making over £1m in revenue in 2012 and hope to make over £3m in the next year alone.
