Food Trucks Have Gone to the Dogs
Is there no human trend that doesn’t translate to the pet world? The latest craze in the human culinary world, the food truck experience, has now gone to the dogs.
Enter The Seattle Barkery, a canine-centric food truck serving up tidbits and treats to local dogs and their owners, reported the Associated Press. Ben and Dawn Ford, the husband-and-wife team behind the truck, have been parking their 1968 Chevy Step Van outside dog parks, farmer’s markets and dog-friendly breweries around Seattle for the past 10 months.
The Seattle Barkery menu includes items both people and dogs can enjoy, such as pumpkin pretzels, peanut butter-banana cookies and mini cheesy doughnuts. Other offerings are strictly for dogs, such as air-fried chicken feet and duck necks. All the treats are homemade and “aren’t filled with ingredients you can’t pronounce,” said Dawn.
The Seattle Barkery isn’t the first canine food truck that has been around the block. Fido to Go in Chicago serves bacon cheeseburger-flavored frozen yogurt, and Milo’s Kitchen Mobile Treat Truck boasts a play area and dog selfie station for furry patrons in San Francisco.
