The rise of culinary food trucks that serve specialty foods—think Korean tacos or architecture-inspired ice cream sandwich—has been a phenomenon on the West Coast in recent years. One could in Seattle has brought the concept to the pet-food world, driving around to serve up home-made canine cuisine. The Seattle Barkery is the brainchild of Ben and Dawn Ford, who serve everything from bacon pupcakes to peanut butter pumpkin pretzels to chicken feet and duck necks.
The couple publishes which dog parks they’ll be at on social media. Occasionally their rescue dog Sherman travels with them, too. The couple jokes that he’s their “Chief Tasting Officer” — or “CTO.”
They even have a tip jar, and proceeds go to a local nonprofit that helps senior pets in their golden years.
