March 2019 - Global Pet Expo Retailer Excellence Award
Pet Business and Global Pet Expo officials hosted their eighth-annual Retailer Excellence Awards on March 21, 2019 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. These awards highlight and honor outstanding independent pet stores in a wide variety of categories. We are proud to announce that Healthy Spot won the “Best Multi-Unit Retailer (15+ Stores)” category! This award recognizes multi-unit pet retailers with 10 or more stores that excel in sales, customer service, store design, merchandising and community services. Co-founder, Andrew Kim, received this award and shared:
“We are thrilled to receive this recognition by our industry and peers. This award reflects on the commitment, passion and hard work our team puts in on a daily basis with our clients and community to inspire healthy pet lifestyles. None of our achievements would be possible without our pack members and we are grateful to be awarded this industry's distinction for their hard work as the Best Multi-Unit Retailer of 2019.
We thank everyone on our team for their hard work and dedication to inspiring healthy pet lifestyles. From our nutrition experts on the sales floor to our merchandising team that create a curated collection of food, treats and more, Healthy Spot couldn’t have won this award without its people.”
Mark Kalaygian, the Publishing Director & Editor in Chief of Pet Business Magazine weighed in with his personal relationship with our founders.
"I personally had the pleasure of getting to know Healthy Spot founders Mark Boonark and Andrew Kim in early 2013, when their chain was still just three stores in Southern California. Even back then, it was clear that they had all of the elements necessary to build a thriving retail business in the hyper-competitive pet industry, so it's no surprise that they have been able to grow Healthy Spot into a dynamic 15-store powerhouse of a chain over the past six years. Healthy Spot’s polished branding, easy to shop and engaging store design, and best-in-class customer service makes this chain a worthy recipient of the Retailer Excellence Award for Best Overall Multi-Unit Retailer (15+ stores), and the epitome of what any pet owner could want in a neighborhood pet store.”

We are proud to have been awarded 43rd place in the top 50 positions in the small and medium business category.
