Ray Hesano opened the doors of Premier Pet Supply in the summer of 1992.

Bringing with him years of experience in the grocery business, Ray saw the chance to provide the same clean stores, top-notch service and products to our four-legged friends.

Seizing the opportunity, Premier Pet Supply began its journey of offering quality foods, treats and supplements for pets.

The store quickly became a staple in the Beverly Hills community.

In 1994, Ray’s nephew, Mike Palmer, began working the store full time while taking business courses in college.

After graduation, Mike partnered with Ray, and he quickly became the face of Premier Pet Supply — immersing himself in the community by supporting local groups, events and schools.

Mike and his team at Premier Pet Supply strive to treat every customer like family from the moment they walk through the door.

In 2016, Premier Pet Supply expanded its reach, and opened three new locations: Rochester Hills, Novi and Livonia.

Premier Pet Supply’s product focus is on natural and holistic foods, treats and supplements for all pets. The store carries many hard-to-find and unique items.

Stop by and find out why Premier Pet Supply has consistently been named ‘Best Pet Supply Store’ in all metro Detroit!


Mike-Palmer-150x225Through the years, Premier Pet Supply has earned its reputation as metro Detroit’s go-to spot for all pet supply needs.

Premier Pet Supply serves as not only a staple in the community, but also as one of the highest-volume independently-owned pet supply stores in the entire Midwest.

Owner Mike Palmer’s philosophy is simple — to offer a modern day mom-and-pop shop atmosphere where every customer is treated like family.

Mike and his team at Premier Pet Supply offer award-winning customer service, and unparalleled knowledge on all things animal.

Over the years, Premier Pet Supply has been the focus of news stories on the radio, local newspapers and television. Mike has even been mentioned in the book “StartupNation: America’s Leading Entrepreneurial Experts Reveal the Secrets to Building a Blockbuster Business.”

Years ago, Mike was chosen as an “Elite Executive 40 under 40” in Oakland County by County Commissioner L. Brooks — an award given to those who have both succeeded in business, and efforts to help the community.

In 2016, Mike partnered with family members and long-time business associates, and opened new stores in Rochester Hills, Novi, and Livonia. Each store is owner-operated.

Mike resides in Novi with his wife and four children.

Philanthropy and community involvement are nothing new to Mike Palmer and his team at Premier Pet Supply.

Working hand-in-hand with local shelters, the store works to further awareness and aide for those less fortunate — both furry and not.

Each weekend, the store hosts adoption events for local non-kill rescue shelters.

Premier Pet Supply also works with Birmingham Public Schools to employ special needs students, and offers a volunteer program for elementary school students to take turns working scheduled shifts.

The programs are designed to teach kids the importance and responsibility involved in caring for animals, and pets as well as basic skills and expectations as an employee of a retail store.
