Hollywood Feed was founded in 1951. The company originally began as a feed and grain store for large farm animals, such as cows and horses. The company was also the main supplier of Purina products for the Memphis zoo. The company changed names from Hollywood Feed to Hollywood Pet Star in the early 1980’s. New owners, Shawn McGhee and family, changed the name back to the original name when they purchased the company in 2006.
Today, Hollywood Feed has 40 stores in 5 states. The company expects to open another 10 locations in 2016 and hopes to continue opening new stores at this rate each year. Hollywood feed stopped selling live animals in 2007, changing their focus to pet accessories and high quality, natural pet foods.
The company is also dedicated to selling items made in the U.S.A. One of their largest selling, non-food items, are Mississippi Pet Beds, which are made in Tupelo, Mississippi.
