Petland in Jacksonville Receives 2018 Best of Jacksonville Award

(Jacksonville, FL, June 4, 2018) – Petland Jax has been selected for the 2018 Best of Jacksonville Award in the Pet Store category by the Jacksonville Award Program.

“We are honored to have not only received this award once but three times now consecutively,” said Geoff Daniels, co-owners of the Petland in Jacksonville with his wife, Kelli.

“It is awesome being a part of the community as a local pet store that people can trust.  When we started the store in 2012, one of our goals was to be able to give back to the community that supports us.  Helping programs like Dreams Come True, K9’s for Warriors and local animal rescues is just part of the things we do in our community.” 

Each year, the Jacksonville Award Program identifies companies that we believe have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category. These are local companies that enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and our community. These exceptional companies help make the Jacksonville area a great place to live, work and play.

“We have taken our puppies to visit assisted living homes to spread the joy our puppies bring to our customers every day and promise to continue making our store better and better every year for our customers and the community,” said Daniels.

Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. The 2018 Jacksonville Award Program focuses on quality, not quantity. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the Jacksonville Award Program and data provided by third parties.
