This is a true American success story and the place it started is a beautiful thing.  If you've even had the pleasure of meeting my friend Norm Candelore, you know that his heart is as big as his personality.  That extends to his amazing daughter Kelsi who absolutely loved her job as a dog groomer.

Together they turned the love of that job into a career by going into business together, opening Candelore's Barking Beauties. Watch the video on this page to see first-hand what the business is all about and how they're creating dozens of jobs across Western Pennsylvania.

"The communities where we do business have been the reason for our success. We thank you and promise you that we will always do our best to make you and your fur babies happy and satisfied." - Norm Candelore, Jr.

They started with one salon in Elizabeth in 2015 grooming dogs and cats of all breeds. They've grown with demand, expanding to three more locations today.

"Our four salons offer our customers the best trained and most professional groomers and bathers in the area. We pride ourselves on the ultimate customer experience by making sure that your fur baby has a fantastic visit to our salon where our staff caters to your pets needs." - Kelsi Candelore

In addition to their intentionally low prices, there's another chance to save with the Get Marty Special.  All you have to do is ask for it by name and you'll get $5 off any bath package or full grooming service.
