City of Houston, Office of Business Opportunity, is hosting its Business Plan 2014 Competition for the second year in a row. The last remaining contestants are all placed in one of three competition categorizes, Product, Innovation and Service. One winner in each category will receive $10,000 seed capitol. City of Houston is helping three new Houston start-up companies with a total of $30,000!
Contestants in the $30,000 competition must have attended five or more workshops, received guidance from a SCORE mentor, financial advice from an ACCION financial advisor and have written a completed business plan before the October 20, 2014 deadline.
The stakes are high for the three soon to-be announced Houston-based company winners. Food truck venders and software developers are ideal for the product and innovation categories; however, we discovered a business idea that lives up to its name. Premier Pet Mobile Salon is the leader in quality service. This lavish and plush pet spa treatment tops the cake on any mobile grooming salon in Houston and let me tell you why.
Premier Pet Mobile Spa is an hour and a half of luxurious pampering experience for a pet. The mobile pet salon sets the atmosphere with the peaceful sound of the ocean waves and splashing waterfall at a private tropical resort. The selections from twelve assortments of therapeutic pet products are chosen and the pampering begins. The shampoos, conditioners, conditioning shampoos, rinses, and skin creams are included in every package. All pet grooming sessions include anal secretion, 10 minute hair brush, blow dry, ear clean, stomach shave, inner paw shave, nail trim, pet hair cut, style and a choice of holiday, fruit or margarita fragrance spray to complete the ultimate pet spa package. This all-inclusive package is just $100.00.
Premier Pet Mobile Spa is owned by Haqikah Stewart. She graduated and received her pet stylist certification from, Golden Paws, a Texas accredited pet career school in Houston.

“The City of Houston, Office of Business Opportunity, is reaching out a helping hand to Houston’s small-business community and all I have to do is grab on to it. I have learned immensely throughout the whole process from beginning to end. This competition is an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the company and truly would be a dream come true for me.”
