Wagging Tails are delighted to announce that their Swindon franchisee Hilary Coates has reached the final of the Wiltshire Business of the Year Awards in the sector of Business Person of the Year. The awards celebrate the success of large and small businesses throughout Wiltshire across all business sectors.

Upon hearing the news of her reaching the final Hilary said, “I was very excited to be told that I have made it through to the finalist stage in the Wiltshire Business of the Year awards, for the category of Business Person of the Year.

As someone who had no experience of running a business prior to taking on the franchise of Wagging Tails in this area 4 years ago, I hope this will inspire other people to get out there and give it a go, you never know what you might achieve until you try!

Grateful thanks go to my wonderful franchisors for their support, knowledge and advice and especially to my team of carers, who do such a great job looking after the dogs in their care that we have bookings a year in advance.”

Franchisor Lisa Suswain said, “We will be keeping our fingers (and paws!) crossed here at Wagging Tails Head Office, however regardless of the outcome of the awards in April we are delighted for Hilary’s achievement and she should be very proud of herself and her team of Dog Carers!”
