Beverly Jones-Murphy McKinney, TX
Beverly was a project manager for many years with various companies. She wanted to find something that would give her more freedom. A career where she would not have to worry about the constant threat of corporate America and downsizing lingering over her head.
“I had a dream to own something pet-related, escaping from the corporate world. My previous profession was horrible. They have been laying off in company for the past 8 years. After this happened, it was clear. I wanted to pursue my interest in starting my own Splash and Dash Groomerie & Boutique. I wanted to become my own business owner. My husband agreed, and I pursued my dream.”
Beverly’s interest into the pet franchise industry was no accident. Her bond with dogs is unmistakable.
“Whenever I walk my own dog Teddy-O around the neighborhood I know all the dogs first. Teddy’s my little baby, he’s a 24 pound Shih Tzu and he just lays there, unless he’s chasing me around the house.”
She has always had pets at home, and when she worked in her office she imagined a place where she could merge her business ambitions with pets.
“I have this great relationship with owners and their dogs. I like to see the different types of dogs–you get to talk to them, and cuddle them. I feel good about being my own boss. I want people to know that they will be coming into a place that is capable and caring. We love what we do here.”
