Not Your Average Pet Grooming Company

Clinton Gangloff, the owner of Riverfront Pets, generously gave us a few minutes of his time to tell us about his award-winning business and its impressive online reputation.

The first question we had for Clinton was what is it that sets Riverfront Pets apart from their competition in Delaware. Clinton told us that they want to be a destination, a place where people can learn about the best care for their animals, as well as to come and meet other people who have pets. Their service is high quality; everything is tested and handpicked, and they are super knowledgeable on the products they carry. They know clearly that, if they were in competition with online or big box stores, they would not succeed, so they differentiate with customer service.

We also wanted to know what their mission is at Riverfront Pets and how they work to make the world a better place. Clinton shared with us that their mission is to become the go-to for pet supplies and services in the community, and to be ingrained in their community.

Building Success by Being More of Destination Than a Pet Store

Clinton attributes Riverfront Pet’s strong online reputation to the fact that they are more than a pet store; they are a destination, and they’ve grown their online reputation organically.

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Riverfront Pets has gotten their name out there by asking people to follow them on Facebook, through Google ads and with the banner they have up at a local baseball stadium.

There are so many business owners out there looking to build the kind of online reputation Riverfront Pets has. Here’s Clinton’s expert advice for them:

“The easiest thing that gets lost is getting away from your mission. Define who you are, and stick to that as best as you can, especially early on. If you believe in what you have, you have to stick with it.”


Congratulations to the team at Riverfront Pets for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Clinton, for taking the time to speak with us!
