The Park’s newest grooming house has opened in a flash and that’s not just a metaphor.
As its name suggests, KwikLiks offers quick grooming or, as its proprietress Maitea Behi says, “Flash grooming for the fast set.”
At the grand opening yesterday, Behi beamed as she offered treats to the steady stream of new customers.
“In our business, we like to say, ‘A treat is worth a thousand licks,'” she joked, as she directed Animals of every species toward the house’s bank of groomers.
With five full-time and eight part-time groomers, Behi says she can service over five hundred Animals an hour.
“A few licks should do it for most Animals. Larger Animals, of course, will take a bit more time. And for important occasions, we’re happy to take those extra few seconds to make you look your absolute best.”
While Behi’s establishment is the first of its kind in The Park, she says that flash grooming has taken off elsewhere.
“We scoped out a few venues outside The Park and even considered opening there,” she said. “But my heart belongs here. My loyalty is to The Park.”
KwikLiks’s opening at this time of year is no coincidence, either. While Behi hopes to cash in on The Park’s upcoming social season, she understands that this year the established houses may win out.
“I’m going to need to gain the trust of Animals in a flash,” she said.
