What a great idea and wonderful execution! I would love to attend an event like that!


I adore the Global Pet Foods that is at the top of my street. The girls that work there always give Matrix a yummy treat and have really helped him with his aversion to strangers. Awesome company all round it seems!

I'm pretty proud to be part of such an awesome little franchise. My bosses took me along to our annual AGM in May, and the owners are all such great friends, it's really close and familial. It was a real privilege to see. Like most franchises, it has its downsides, but I do like that they give the individual stores so much freedom. Events like this we can do however we please, we can bring in any inventory we wish... it's almost like a private buying group with a recognizable brand attached.

The events are the best part. I can just be like "hey, can we do this fun thing and pick this rescue to donate the funds to?" and my bosses usually say "you plan it and run it, and the floor is yours". It's awesome.
