Q-PETS, a member of the renowned ADP Pentagon Pets Group, is a leading pet retailing chain in Hong Kong with over 38 retail shops. Established in 1999, with over 200 employees, the Group has a diverse portfolio of market leading retail brands & services offering everything from food, treat & toy, health supplement, body care product, to grooming. The market share of the Group surpasses by far the competition.
The founders of the Group, the Yip brothers, started to actualise an innovative pet chain store concept in the 90s which was the first ever business model in the pet industry. The Yip couple have a strong passion on pets. They owned 8 cats and treated them as close family members. At that time, pet products were limited in HK and they hardly found any pet shop with a pleasant shopping experience in terms of product variety and the environment.
Their vision was to build a trustworthy, convenient, hygienic, and non-smelly, valued-based “one-stop chain store,” enlightening the customers’ shopping experience for pet products. Their optimism was driven by the rapid growth of pet ownership and the purchasing power of pet owners as well as the growing humanisation trend of pets. It now proves to be successful and its share has been growing with the overall market size progressively.
The brand Q-PETS: “Q” stands for “Cutie” and the red “Q” implies a jumping heart. Together with “Pets” which let people easy to speak and remember Q-PETS is selling pet foods and a wide variety of pet utilities.
3 lovely mascots, namely Gilly (阿嬌), Monpy (阿懵) & Tinny (阿叮), represent top 3 common pets in Hong Kong. Gilly is a vivid cat with ultrafast reaction. Monpy is a sluggish dog but easy going. Tinny is a naïve rabbit with a kind heart. They get along with each other in harmony.
The Group will continue to expand the pet business by opening new stores, aiming at over 80 stores, with strategic locations near to pet-owning households and expanding the channel of distribution. Nowadays, Q-PETS is offering over 200 brands with more than 4500 items at the choice of pet owners. With the continual development of O2O platform, the Group expects to further increase the number of pet item to over 5000 and become the largest O2O platform in Hong Kong. Moreover, China’s market is one of the strategic focus with the growing knowledge of pet care.

集團創辦人葉氏兄弟, 在90年代構思了嶄新的寵物連鎖店概念. 葉氏夫婦飼養了八隻貓, 並視之為摯親的家庭成員. 當時, 有質素的寵物用品選擇並不多，更鮮有可以讓顧客擁有一個優質購物體驗的寵物用品店。葉氏就憑著對寵物的熱誠，在香港的寵物行業上創立了第一家店。
隨著飼養寵物的人數急速增長，飼養的模式及文化改變, 讓葉氏確立了業務目標, 就是要締造一個可靠、方便、衛生的一站式連鎖用品零售店，給予寵物主人一個全新的購物體驗。此舉證明了其目標準確, 並成功讓集團在市場上一直穩站龍頭的位置。
