 Owner Mary S. - Bark Life Market & More, St. Pete. Florida

"Owning a Bark Life Market is truly a dream come true!" I was a customer of one of the locations for several years and I quickly developed a passion for what Bark Life stood for. I spent 12 years in the hospitality industry working in country clubs, restaurants etc. and though I always enjoyed it I never felt passionate about it. I decided to go back to school to pursue my MBA with the thought of one day owning my own business. I received it in 2010 yet still hadn't figured out what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.                                          

I am the mother a 17yr old son and 2 Portuguese Water Dogs. Once I adopted my 2 dogs I immediately found my passion. After searching for a pet store to purchase healthy food & treats from I had almost given up, then I found Bark Life! I felt welcomed the minute I walked in and after a conversation with one of the employees, I knew this was my place.  It smelled great, it wasn't "froufrou" so I felt welcome with my bigger dogs. No excessive barking from the grooming area and a knowledgeable, trustworthy staff, it was everything I was looking for.

About a year after of my dogs being groomed and purchasing everything I needed for my babies at Bark Life I began speaking with Tammy (one of the owners) about wanting to own a Bark Life. I told her that "I will be 1st in line" once you begin selling franchises, and I was! Fast-forward to today and I am the proud owner of the very successful St. Petersburg location and I wouldn't want to be doing anything else. Mike and Tammy have truly been amazing through the entire process and I'm excited to see the brand grow nationwide.
