Three Dog Bakery Acquired by Private Equity Firm


Three Dog Bakery, Inc., an all-natural, oven-baked treat, pastry and food company, has been acquired by a private equity group led by Aziz Giga, former vice president of Strategic Planning at PPG Industries. The new company will be known as Three Dog Bakery, LLC.

"We are proud to own the Three Dog Bakery brand that pioneered bakeries for dogs," Giga said. "The team has done a great job of expanding the brand, products and distribution across North America. We look forward to helping move the company to the next level."

From its beginning as a single bakery in Kanas City, Mo., which was founded in 1989, the company has grown to 36 boutique bakeries for dogs, located within the U.S., Canada and Hong Kong. The company also provides Three Dog Bakery brand and private-label packaged products to national and independent pet retailers, grocery, drug, mass and club merchandisers and through direct-to-consumer Internet sales.

"We are excited about this new partnership and fully expect this transaction to greatly accelerate our growth strategy,” said Brian Wiethran, president and CEO of Three Dog Bakery.
