10/7 Anniversary Quiz Answers...
Guess How Many Treats are in the Jar
There were 337 treats in the jar. Closest guess was 340.
We had 14 winners! As posted on the quiz sheet, we chose 3 winners at random. Thank you for playing!
How Well Do You Know Oliver's Collar?
We used to carry Putt-Mutts (golf ball art that looked like poodles)
The two original flavors of treats we don't carry anymore were Minty Carob Chip and Garlicky Carrot
We don't have cats (although a lot of guesses were for Sir Hiss-a-lot)
We built our customer service counter in our garage and had an artist from BAMPRO do the metal tops for us
The tables that flank our front windows were originally NC State Science Lab tables (we removed the slate tops and the electric backboards and refinished some oak planks for the tops)
We began this business in our home kitchen and developed wholesale accounts over 2 years while we both worked full time jobs, wrote a business plan and planned for a retail space
Before we decided on baking dog treats, we explored buying a coffee shop and starting a furniture refinishing business
We couldn't have opened our business without help from some great free resources like SCORE who provided some invaluable help on our business plan. (MCAKES, empty nester moms who volunteer to teach baking and advise small bakery startups, is not real, but it's a good idea!)
