The vision of our business began five years ago when Colleen brought home Lucy, her new Golden Retriever puppy. Colleen had read that treats were an effective way to train a puppy so she went to her local grocer to purchase some. To her dismay the shelves were filled with treats that contained preservatives and ingredients she could not even pronounce. Colleen takes pride in the fact that she raised her children on nutritious homemade meals and believed Lucy deserved the same. She worked hard to make from scratch all-natural nutritious treats for Lucy and over several months developed treats that Lucy truly loved.

Requests came from friends and family for these flavorful treats became to much for Colleen to produce in her small kitchen. She called her daughter who had her own grooming business in the Pocono Mountains and proposed that they open a business together. They agreed to open their very own gourmet bakery and grooming shop together located on historic Quail Acres. Since then a lot has happened. The store has expanded to include a general store, grooming salon and playground/exercise course. It has become a destination for dog owners in Western Pennsylvania.

The new 6600 square foot Home Office and Bakery facility located at Washington Mall, Washington, PA is staffed and equipped to meet the needs of our growing team of franchisees. Just Dogs! GourmetTM now produces three lines of treats:

  • Deluxe Gourmet Treats
  • Gourmet Market Treats
  • Canine Confections

Just Dogs! GourmetTM has pulled together an outstanding leadership team to take Just Dogs! GourmetTM to a national household favorite and lead our industry in the retail of gourmet dog treats.
