The managing director of a pet food superstore in Hampshire has been named Entrepreneur of the Year in the South Coast Business Awards.

Deborah Burrows, who owns Healthy Pet Store in Totton, was awarded the Entrepreneur of the Year for her dedication and passion to transform the six-year-old pet food and accessory shop into a leading retailer in the south of England.

The store, which specialises in frozen meals for cats and dogs, is the biggest of its kind in the country by square footage.

In the middle of the national lockdown in June 2020, Deborah moved Healthy Pet Store to a bigger outlet space which now holds 30 chest freezers of meats, dairy produce, fruits, vegetables and more.

Deborah said: “I am delighted to receive this award. However, it’s not just for me. It is for everyone who works at, been a customer of, or has been associated with the store.

“Everyone has played a massive part in creating the incredible success of Healthy Pet Store and this award is for all of them too.”
