Bentley’s Pet Stuff has acquired Pooch N Paws. The two Atlanta, Georgia, retail locations along with the five to eight more planned in the Georgia area will bring Bentley’s Pet Stuff to more than 100 locations in 12 states.
“We are excited to expand even further into the Southeast and look forward to welcoming the Pooch N Paws employees into the Bentley’s Pet Stuff family,” said Lisa Senafe, founder and owner of Bentley’s Pet Stuff.
Pooch N Paws opened in 2010 with a location on Suwanee Town Center Avenue and Peachtree Parkway by owners Bob and Starla Pellegrino, who say they have values that align perfectly with Bentley’s Pet Stuff husband and wife couple Lisa and Giovanni Senafe.
“We have always wanted to start a business where we could combine our passion for family and pets together” Starla Pellegrino said. “Many similar companies are expanding nationally, but none better aligned with the principals that we started the company on—“Only The Best For Your Pet”—than Bentley’s Pet Stuff”
Starla Pellegrino wrote a note to her customers reassuring them not much will change and that the employees will now be getting medical insurance and additional opportunities for growth. Pellegrino will also remain on board to help Bentley’s Pet Stuff expand.
