From Flooring To Pets…Naturally: Kathy And Tim Hyland Broaden Their Entrepreneurial Scope
What do flooring, metalsmithing/design and pet food have in common?
If you answered Kathy and Tim Hyland, you’re right. They are the owners and moving forces behind Bayview Flooring, Bayview Displays and Pets Naturally.
Pets Naturally came about when their own dog got sick. “Our dog got sick, and when we changed its diet, she got better. We thought it would be cool to have a health food pet store, like Oryana,” said Tim.
They owned a building on South Airport Road and when the tenant moved out, they saw an opportunity for another adventure. Pets Naturally is Kathy’s (fur) baby.
“It grew out of my love for dogs, especially,” she said.
When their Boston Terrier Lucy started losing fur while battling an immune system disorder, she began researching healthy food products. They ended up buying food online as at the time there was no place available locally to purchase it. When Lucy got better, they decided they were on to something, and decided the best way to help others find the healthiest options for their pets was to offer such products themselves.
“We said, ‘Let’s open one.’ It took off,” Kathy said.
