An online natural dog-treat bakery is going the brick-and-mortar route across the street from the fountain.
Amelie’s Bark Shop is shooting to open this summer at 1544 E. Passyunk Ave. Owner Jackie Starker says she’ll offer natural baked in-house dog treats, as well as eco-friendly pet products from handmade crafters.
Starker, whose online business used to be called Pupcakes, said she outgrew her kitchen. The new business is named after her own dog, Amelie.
The building, which is next door to the corner building that had the holiday card to the neighborhood, was most recently used as a private home, but at one point it seemed like it might have been an unlicensed Indian catering kitchen. There was no sign, just a menu posted in the window. Before that, we hear it was a flower shop.
And now a doggie bakery. Quite the evolution, no?
