If itís big brown eyes and a long pink tongue that tickles your entrepreneurial fancy, Woof Gang Bakery has all the ingredients necessary for a successful venture. In this $41 billion pet food and supply market, Doggie treats alone passed the billion-dollar mark in the past decade, but boutique-style dog snacks have an appeal to pet owners that goes beyond price. Woof Gang Bakery treats are for discriminating dog-lovers who treat their pets like members of the family.

Woof Gang Bakery claims to be the nationís ďfastest-growing gourmet dog-treat bakery and retail store franchise.Ē Woof Gang Bakery creates hand-made, ďhealthyĒ dog treats that are baked on location, along with premium pet foods, organic food, and natural supplements.

I like the concept, but have concerns about the success of the franchisees. It may be tough to pay the bills only selling gourmet pet food. The market for this type of business is very small. We will revisit this one again and see how they progress.

Don, just so you understand the potential profit from Woof Gang Bakery, I decided to reply to your post.

You can open a Woof Gang Bakery store for a little over $60,000 including stock, franchise fee and build out.

70% of our business is treats, that are made on site. These treats cost about $1.35 a pound to produce and sell for $12.95 – $23 a pound.

Our average store in the first 3 months of 08, did $29,300 in sales – with a 62% profit.

Woof Gang Bakery can be run by one person, that person bakes, sells, cleans and opens/closes the store.

Woof Gang Bakery has a zero advertising budget for the shops.

We only allow stores to open in the are next to Starbucks or a major restaurant.

Woof Gang Bakery is a Treat of a Franchise!

At this time we are only offering franchises in Florida.

Thank you Don

Is this business still very lucrative? How do you feel you fare compared to your competitors such as Three Dog Bakery?

The claims of opening a store for 60,000 including franchise fee, build out and stock are not accurate. The price is much higher

Earnings are skewed to say the least

Locations are not researched properly

Limited training

Not a solid concept in its present condition
