Three Dog Bakery finds new owner


Published:

Twenty-five years ago, most dogs didn't even dream of treats made from scratch. The thought of their own birthday cake or a cupcake-like treat called a pup cake was beyond their pay grade.

Enter Three Dog Bakery, a storefront in Kansas City with all-natural, oven-baked pastries for dogs, that provided both decadently fun treats for dogs and a gathering place for people and their canine companions. One of the original selling points was that the treats were human-grade food, in other words, the owners could literally break bread with their dogs if they so wished.

From that original location, the company grew to 34 boutique bakeries for dogs in the U.S., Canada and Hong Kong. A significant piece of the business includes branded packaged treats and private-labeled treats sold through various national and independent pet retailers and grocery and warehouse stores.

Earlier this month, the business was sold to a group of investors led by Aziz Giga, a former vice president of strategic planning at PPG Industries and millennial marketing expert and author, Jeff Fromm from Kansas City.

The new owners plan to expand the manufacturing end of the business and also increase the bakery count, Giga said in a release.
