Doggie Deli Caters To Tastes Of Pets
The standard of living for dogs has gone up a notch in British Columbia where Dan Kerr has opened what may be the world's first delicatessen grocery store for dogs.
Kerr started catering to pets when his oil-field supply business "went to the dogs". He set up shop in an open market in Victoria and called his business Doggie Deli Inc., selling homemade baked gourmet treats for both dogs and cats. The idea has proved so successful he's answering inquiries from throughout the U.S. and Canada from people interested in establishing franchises in other cities.
Kerr's looking for new items to add to the list of doggie goodies he offers. In addition to doggie doughnuts,doggie muffins, cakes made with ground beef base for birthdays and special events, and an assortment of other treats, he wants to expand into greeting cards for dogs and cats, such as birthday, get well, anniversary, "litter" day, Mother's and Father's Day cards. He also plans to sell a special cheese drink for dogs straight from a dispensing machine on the counter.
Kerr got the idea for his deli when he observed the popularity of doggie cookies sold by a firm in Chicago.
