In 2007, Mike, the founder, was working in Real Estate Finance for a local real estate developer. He just transitioned to this new career path and he really enjoyed what he was doing. But he came in at the peak of the housing bubble. Months later, Mike became another casulty of the Housing Crisis.
During his time of soul searching, Mike and his wife adopted a cute little eight week old Cockapoo named Layla. You could say that Layla kept Mike company and pre-occupied - potty training, puppy training and etc. During that time, Mike finally understood why people say 'dogs are a man's best friend.' Layla was there for him when he needed it the most.
Mike made it a mission to find the best pet products to keep Layla healthy and happy. He bought books on pet nutrition, spoke to fellow dog owners and even questioned Layla's vet on best practices.
One day, Mike had a 'ah-ha' moment...Why not share what I learned with other pet owners? If people knew all this stuff I found out, I bet they would change the way they feed their pet! Why not create a service that provides only the best pet products at everyday low prices? Why can't buying pet supplies be as easy as buying something on Amazon?
With that, Beg To Deliver was born.
(p.s.: Mike enjoy's this new path even more, especially because Layla and Mike are inseparable! How cool is that!)
Mike is a lifelong LA native spending his early years growing up in Cerritos, California. He spent his undergrad days at UCLA and got his Masters at USC. (Fact: If you ask him who he supports during the Big Rivalry, its UCLA! Why? Because he met his wife there).
Today, Mike and Layla are literally inseparable - both at home and at work. They spend their time sourcing great new products, meeting new vendors and making BTD the best it can be for the busy Angeleno.
When away from the office, Mike enjoys running, practicing yoga, watching movies and finding really good eats with his wife wherever they travel.
