Hill’s Delivers New Offerings Directly to Pets

Posted: Aug. 20, 2012, 7:55 p.m. EDT

The food truck craze is going to the dogs—and the cats.
The Pet Café, a food truck sponsored by Hill’s Pet Nutrition Inc. of Topeka, Kan., is touring the United States to promote the company’s Science Diet Ideal Balance line of pet foods and treats. Free samples are doled out to hungry dogs and cats at each stop, while their owners get coupons.

October 2012 stops will focus on the Western United States, including:
