About the employer

PetShop.co.uk was founded with the help of a £5,000 Prince's Trust loan in 2010 by Adam, his partner Lexi (now wife) and their kitties Hugo and Jasper. Adam lost his job in the recession and moved back home. When witnessing his mother Rosheen (who suffers from arthritis) struggling to carry and constantly running out of pet food, he had his eureka moment! And so, PetShop.co.uk and the first-ever subscription pet food service, Bottomless Bowl, was born! Adam met our first customers speaking to them in the streets of London, he took their orders face-to-face and hand delivered them on the back of his Vespa scooter. Unfortunately we can't deliver all of our orders on Vespas today (but we would if we could!).
