Holly and Jesse love to share their passion for reptiles with everyone.
They began the journey in 2005, when they both knew they wanted to become entrepreneurs and both had a particular love for cold-blooded creatures. With many goals, far-fetched dreams, and little-to-no-funds, the adventure began.
Against all odds and a lot of discouragement, they began what is now Paramount Pet Entertainment. The company has grown a lot and so has the collection of creatures. Throughout the years, too, Holly and Jesse have meet key people who have helped bring their dreams to reality and sustain them. Teresa, who had a beautiful collection of reptiles, was one of the first people to believe in the couple. She donated several snakes and terrariums, as well as custom-made snake racks, letting the company grow and inspiring the couple to aim higher.
In 2012 the couple decided to open the reptile store. With the support of many, the store has now been open for six years. A special thanks to building manager Jaime, who fought for the store to stay open and has always been encouraging and motivating to the couple.
Over the years, many other people have donated their reptiles. Emilio Cesar reached out and donated many high-end bearded dragons and leopard geckos, as well as enclosures. Mark from L.A. Reptiles opened many doors to give Paramount Pet Entertainment access to large and rare reptiles and unbelievable prices.
Special thanks to the couple’s friend Becca, who believed in the dream and helped the company stay afloat at a very stressful time. Also special thanks to our oldest son Adrian Cepedas help, who helped clean cages, feed animals, watch the store, perform at shows.
With everyone’s help, the couple has been able to conquer many obstacles, still pushing forward with many more dreams to fulfill. And the couple will continue to offer what they love most: Reptile Shows.
"None of this could had been possible without each other’s love and support, as well as understanding and patience. Please continue to recommend us to your local schools, friends and worship centers. We love what we do and hope to do it for the rest of our lives."
