Teri Payne Jones founded Espree in 1989 with a desire to combine her passion for animals with her experience in manufacturing Aloe Vera based products. Teri loves animals! She competed in hunter / jumper equine classes for 20 years and has been a passionate dog enthusiast all of her life. Espree has allowed Teri to make a meaningful contribution to the animals that have given her so much joy throughout her life.
Justin Jones joined Teri at Espree in 2003 and in marriage the following year. Justin has business degrees from SMU in Dallas, Texas (BBA) and Rice in Houston, Texas (MBA) and his experience in operations consulting helped Espree experience rapid growth.
Espree launched in 1989 with 5 products primarily formulated for pet professionals. Espree products quickly became groomer favorites! As Espree's popularity grew, groomers began to request more solutions. Over time, Espree has responded to those groomer requests by developing over 75 products for dogs, cats and horses. Over the past 10 years, Espree's popularity has grown with pet owners seeking organic products that solve their pet's issues safely and effectively.
Espree now distributes products in more than 25 countries around the world to thousands of pet professionals and consumers alike!
Espree was acquired by Manna Pro Products, LLC in February of 2017.
