Three Female-Owned Businesses in YYC to Support This Summer!

Muttley Crue Dog Grooming and Daycare

Keep your pup cool this summer season! Muttley Crue has been a Be Local member for over a decade and are one of the few pet care providers focused on using environmentally sustainable, local, and organic products. Owner Annie Cole grew up in a small farming community in Southern Manitoba with cats, birds, lizards and a horse and was raised by parents who loved and respected animals as much as she does! If you have a pet that you love, why not make your care for them a part of your ‘pawsive’ impact?

Ellie Bianca

Summer is about all about refresh, and why not start with your skin? Ellie Bianca is an all-natural BOPIC skincare company headed by inspiring founder Evelyne. Her products support African women who harvest shea butter, helping them gain financial independence. Evelyne also supports education for women both locally and abroad—we believe there’s no better person to support! (Ps. You can now find her at!)

CAKEify Studio

Summer is a time to celebrate! Whether it’s a birthday party, stampede block party or picnic get together, wow the crowd with an incredible cake that YOU made yourself at CAKEify Studio! CAKEify Studio is a space where cake decorating has no boundaries, so you can let your creativity run wild. As a mother, foodie, baker and cake decorator, owner Debbie felt there was a need for a place like this. Where you could pop-in to get help with an idea, gather together with friends, and create something artsy and delicious!
