Once there was a girl who loved dogs- a lot. There is nothing remarkable in that. In fact, there is a whole world of people out there who love dogs. You know who you are! Dog people are often "pet people" and this is the case with Khris Berry. She never met an animal she didn't want to train or groom. And that was the beginning of turning a passion into a paycheck. Does this describe you or someone you know? Are you yearning to create a career which is centered around your hobby or passion?
Khris Berry turned her passion for working with pets not only into a full-time job spanning over 3 decades but also a successful career that continues to empower, validate, educate, and employee professional pet groomers under the See Spot Grooming brand name.
As an educator, she has worked to drive industry standards crafting education, safety, and professional standards for recognized names such as the American Kennel Club (AKC Safe Grooming) and Barkleigh Productions. She directed grooming-centered programming for the World Pet Association (WPA) and has been a long-time monthly columnist for Groomer to Groomer magazine. But how, you may ask, does this translate into a grooming empire?
From the humble beginnings of the See Spot Grooming brand to the launch of the See Spot Grooming Franchise opportunity, Khris and Team Spot remained focused on the core beliefs they out to define when they created See Spot Grooming. By building a "groomer-centric" company, meaning See Spot Grooming focuses on its groomer workforce so that See Spot Groomers are free to focus and provide an exceptional professional and experience for clients and their pets- Khris and her team have helped shape the future of not only See Spot Grooming but the grooming industry at large. The incorporation of behavior based animal handling into the training of every See Spot employee ensures that every pet is handled humanely and safely is a hallmark of the See Spot Grooming brand.
Backed by a powerful team of innovators who have helped drived and shape the See Spot Grooming brand- including best practices, next-generation support, tools, technology, and systems- the See Spot Grooming Franchise system has grown from a girl who loved dogs to an entire network of pet professionals who are executing industry-best, award-winning pet grooming services daily over a multi-state network.
From passion to purpose and pet lovers to pet professionals- keeping an eye on redefining industry standards and defying former pet grooming models- Khris and Team Spot have remained focus on the original mission while challenging themselves at every turn to create replicable experiences for clients and thier pets. And that's how you develop the foundation of a strong pet grooming business franchise program.
