RosaLee Colgrave, President/Owner

Her passion for learning has her attending seminars on animal health as well as new product development. She also assists staff members in visitations to manufacturers’ headquarters for in depth studies of products offered by Skyway Feed and Pet Supply.
"When we visit the headquarters and/or manufacturing plants of the products offered at Skyway Feed, we are better able to provide our customers with data and specific facts regarding those products. Product knowledge is key in helping customers with their buying decision." — RosaLee

Excellent customer service is her passion. A pleasurable shopping experience is her goal for each customer who visits Skyway Feed and Pet Supply.

Rebecca (Becky) Parker, Assistant Manager
Becky was raised in Sacramento, California and migrated north to Chico, California in 1995 before moving to the town of Paradise. Most of her previous experience was in the field of real estate; first as an onsite property manager, then as an office manager for a property management company. Immediately prior to coming to Skyway Feed and Pet Supply, she was managing all corporate business of the company.
It was Becky's love of motorcycling that kept bringing her to the hills and trails of the Sierra Mountains. On any given weekend, Becky can be found on her bike exploring the great back country of California.
Becky discovered Skyway Feed as a customer. She frequently walked her old black lab to the store to enjoy the social aspect of interacting with our staff. In 2012 when the opportunity arose, Becky joined our staff. Customers love her and seek her out for advice and recommendations. Becky is a true asset to our store.
