Letter from the President
|Dear Zeus and Company Customers,
Zeus & Company began 16 years ago, delivering top nutrition for
pets in 1997, with our first warehouse in Evanston, Illinois.
Since then, we’ve expanded out from the Chicagoland area to include a
warehouse location in Minneapolis, expanding our reach to 14
states. We proudly serve independent pet stores in Illinois,
Wisconsin, Indiana, Minnesota, South Dakota, North Dakota, Nebraska,
Iowa, and Missouri.
Most recently, we relocated our Evanston warehouse and offices to a
62,000 square foot facility in Des Plaines, IL, complete with a mock up
mini retail outlet to display all our product lines. We welcome
visitors to our new home!
All product lines we carry are ‘Zeus Approved’ and undergo extensive
research and product testing to ensure that we offer only the highest
quality products and most nutritious pet foods. In addition, we
seek out products that are environmentally friendly, tailored to pets’
individual needs, and cutting edge. A complete list of products
we offer, complete with video clips direct from our vendors, are on our
website at, www.zeusandco.com.
We are dedicated to providing quality service to our retailers through
extremely knowledgeable and friendly customer service staff and well
trained outside sales reps.
We are very involved with local community charitable organizations by
donating thousands of pounds of pet food and treats to local animal
shelter and rescue groups. You may have even seen us on WGN-TV, where
we partnered with Alive Pets, an animal rescue group for a television
segment where we talked about workplace dangers for pets and found a
few rescues their forever homes.
Zeus & Company supports local street festivals, dog parks and
events throughout the Midwest; send a request via email to support your
Zeus & Company was named after my beloved Rottweiler, Zeus. It was
Zeus’ enthusiastic reaction to those first pet products I served him
that convinced me to start my business. Zeus passed away August 3,
2008. To celebrate his life and legacy, I helped lead a campaign to get
a police dog for the Bayport Narcotics Department in Minnesota. With
the help of many generous donations, both monetary and service
oriented, the police department and Officer Jay Jackson are now the
proud owners of a rescue dog that has been trained to help locate
narcotics in the K-9 unit. This dog will need a lifetime of care so
donations are always appreciated. Now we have taken it a step further
and we are working with several police departments by providing police
canine’s food and supplements. I am a former law enforcement officer
myself, so I value the importance of the canine units.
Since the loss of Zeus, my family has welcomed Lacey into our home and
hearts who keeps our two cats Clementine and Ginger on their toes.
It is rewarding to lead a company that continues to make a positive
impact on the lives of so many people and their beloved pets.
Thank you for your support, comments, and suggestions - I truly
appreciate your business!
