We first needed to find a space. Ideally we would be centrally located to our western suburb clients. Shawn Frick, Prairie Path’s founder had his eyes on a space knowing it would be great for grooming or a small daycare and it became available late last year! It will be located on Roosevelt Rd. in Wheaton.
The space prior was actually a barber shop so we were already in great shape for adding a washing station but we couldn’t get too ahead of ourselves. Before we could start assembling a grooming studio we had one big important part to acquire; a groomer! We were fortunate to meet Katrina. Katrina was practically raised in her mothers grooming studio and has been grooming all her life (since she was 15!). She has a wonderful, outgoing attitude and we feel she will be a natural fit within our company. She’s eager to get started and is the reason we’re bringing in some top-of-the-line equipment into the space. We ordered an extra large tub and an electric grooming table for those extra large pups. We’ll be set for all shapes and sizes!
We’ll keep you posted with more updates as we get closer to announcing an opening date and start taking your appointment requests. Stay tuned!
