Anne and Bill Williams – Des Plaines, IL
Bill, his wife Anne, and their daughter Kathy are the family team as the Splash and Dash Groomerie & Boutique in Des Plaines. The family has lived in the area for 29 years. “We’re excited to give part of us as a family to share with the community,” said Anne who has worked in the local school district. Bill has worked in corporate jobs across America, and their daughter Kathy was the one to bridge the gap of their love of dogs, and owning their own small business.
Kathy has over 5 years experience in the pet grooming industry as the manager of a very busy grooming salon in the area, and is the one managing their shop. “Dogs love her, they really do,” her parents say. “She dog sits and her customers always comment on how all of their dogs fall in love with Kathy. She has that natural quality.” The love continues on in their household.
“We’ve got 5 dogs at home running around with their quirky personalities destroying the house. We have a Cockapoo named Bailey. Vinnie “Van Gogh” he’s a rescue, and missing one ear. We also have the two mixed breed rescues Ava, and Ryder. It’s a full house. Full of dogs, and full of love.”
The family’s new shop is going to offer something special. A service that other groomers in the area can’t provide with the monthly membership.
