In 2017, Rez Gachcar spotted a gap in the market for a portable, gentle and silent pet washer, a product he desperately needed after walking his mud-loving rescue dog.
When the banks declined his loan application, Rez – who moved to Newcastle from Iran almost 20 years ago - sold his home to create Mud Daddy, a portable pressure washer loved by pet owners across the UK.
Since then, the company has dominated the UK petcare market, having finished its third year in business with £10m revenue.
Driving its success is Rez, his wife and 11 other female employees, all of which are parents and/or pet owners. The company has grown organically thanks to its strong focus on customer satisfaction and product development and shows no signs of slowing down, with the launch of ‘Mud Mummy’ and expansion into America coming later this year.
Winner of our 2020 Emerging Talent award, Rez joins us for our first spotlight dinner where he’ll share his journey so far and the entrepreneurial lessons he’s learned.
Set in the private dining rooms of some of the region’s trendiest restaurants and bars, our spotlight dinners bring together great food and captivating conversations while shining a light on the region’s up and coming entrepreneurs.
