Episode 78 | The Recipe for Pet Bakery Success from an All Star Petpreneur
Or Listen Here
If you’ve ever thought about starting (or adding) a pet bakery, then you’ll 100% want to sit, stay, and take notes during this episode!
Candace sat down to chat with a friend, one-on-one client, Pet Boss Club® member, and Pet Boss All-Star, Jennifer Thomas, owner of Lucky Dog Pet Grocery and Bakery.
And by “sat down to chat” we really mean– together they unlocked a smorgasbord of pet bakery knowledge that is so specific it’ll kick your pet bakery ideas into HIGH gear and get you to take action!
In this episode, you’ll learn:
🧁 Where in the world to start if you want to open a pet bakery. Do you need fancy schmancy equipment? How much space do you need? (Spoiler– Jennifer bakes THOUSANDS of cookies in just 150 square feet!) How do you come up with recipes and learn to decorate your baked goods? What are the price points? And SO much more!
🧁 How to wholesale. Once you’re ready, what steps do you take to get started? What logistics should you consider (like registering with the Department of Agriculture)? What’s the shelf life of your items?
🧁 What private labeling is. How can you do it to give your customers a customized experience? How can it bring in more revenue for you?
🧁 How Jennifer has grown her bakery business despite significant challenges. What made all the difference for her through 2020 (and beyond)? What is her store known for (hint: it’s something fun they can watch through a window!)?
You’re going to take so much away from this episode, and if you haven’t thought about a pet bakery in your business before– you definitely will now!
