ZippyPaws Celebrates Milestone Sale
ZippyPaws is celebrating a milestone: selling its one millionth donut on Dec. 14, 2017, following a successful year for the company.
In 2017, the company was awarded one of America’s fastest-growing private companies by Inc. 5000, and also had a new warehouse and office facility built, which is more than three times larger than its current headquarters. In addition, sales more than doubled over 2016, said company officials.
“It feels surreal,” said Jennifer Cao, vice president of ZippyPaws in Chino, Calif. “What a great year 2017 has been for us. I still remember starting ZippyPaws with my father, in our garage. Now we’re moving into a new building, celebrating one million Donutz sold, and being named one of the lead plush toy manufacturers in the industry.
“It’s been amazing seeing how the company has grown over these six years,” Cao added. “We have new launches happening in 2018—I’m very excited to share these new collections with everyone. With this new year, I have full confidence in the ZippyPaws team that we will continue paving the way for the dog toy industry.”
The Donutz toy line has been a best seller ever since Cao and her father started the company, officials said. The stuffing-free fuzzy toys come in three sizes: regular, which has a suggested retail price of $7.99; mini Donutz, which retails for $5.99; and jumbo Donutz, which retail for $10.99.
