“I always knew I wanted to work with animals, but I wasn’t interested in taking over the family farm. While I was working at a Chico pet shop, I talked with my parents, and that’s when we made this big decision. I’m really happy that they are offering me this opportunity.”
– Anna-Belle Gregoire, 19 years old and co-franchisee of the Boutique d’animaux Chico on Taschereau Boulevard in Greenfield Park.
A 100% Chico franchisee
Co-franchisee with her parents, Anna-Belle has a typical Chico background. Before becoming a franchisee, she worked for three years at her aunt Karine Grégoire’s Chico store in La Prairie. She was also part of the first cohort of the DEP program in sales and consulting offered by Chico. At only 19 years old, she already has a lot of experience with customers and animals, whether big or small!
With a small car displaying Chico’s colors, the new franchisees will offer home delivery service. That way, they will be able to better serve the neighborhood and surrounding areas. Kibbles delivered directly into the dog’s bowl!
A bit of history
The first Chico store was founded over 35 years ago in the Hochelaga neighbourhood. Today, the company has over 70 franchises in Quebec.
The Chico network experienced spectacular growth in 2008. Since then, many entrepreneurs with a passion for animals have chosen to join the Chico family by becoming franchisees. Boutiques d’animaux Chico is now the largest chain of neighbourhood pet stores in Quebec.
