Coco’s Puppy Boutique has been named as the best new Online Retailer in the StartUp Awards National Series.

Coco’s Puppy Boutique was founded by Kerry Cunliffe in 2020 to provide a carefully selected range of beautiful and quality dog clothing and dog accessories including harnesses, collars, leads, beds and more, and was selected the best in the region in a highly competitive category which saw thousands of companies enter the awards.

Kerry Cunliffe,  Founder of Coco’s Puppy Boutique, said: “Words can’t express what this means – to start a new business in the middle of the worst economic position in history, in the middle of a pandemic, having to learn everything about running a business from scratch, and then to have the likes of Dylan Jones-Evans, BT, EY, and Dell and everyone at the awards say ‘we love your business, we believe in you’ is something that can never be taken away”

“And now we’re officially one of the most exciting new eCommerce businesses in the country!”

The judges said “Coco’s Puppy Boutique is a lovely business, solving their own problem and self teaching with amazing progress! Supporting a homeless charity too, I believe the business is in a fast growing market and has the potential to achieve even more than what has been shown.”

The StartUp Awards National Series debuted this year to highlight the dynamic startup scene across the country that skyrocketed during the pandemic, and has been rolled out in nine UK nations and regions, supported nationally by BT, EY Breakthrough Incentives, Clearco, Dell Technologies & Intel, Moblox, Fearless Adventures and with regional support from Moja Group.

Creator of the awards Professor Dylan Jones-Evans OBE said the inaugural event not only celebrated the best new firms in the North West of England but recognised the amazing entrepreneurial talent across the nation: “We’re so proud of the amazing reception from all parts of the country for the first year of the StartUp Awards National Series and it was wonderful to be in Manchester to showcase the incredible new businesses from across the North West of England.”
