Mobile vendor will have your tail waggin’
Rochester’s Food Truck Alley gained a new member this week — though this one differs a little from the rest of the pack.
Bone Appetit Canine Bakery (BACB) Unleashed is a mobile vendor of homemade dog treats run by Pam Miller. Miller has been baking dog treats since 1999, using “human-quality ingredients."
“It’s all about the dogs,” she said. “It’s nice to have a treat that doesn’t sit on a shelf for a year or that you don’t have to wonder where its ingredients come from.”
When first applying for a food truck permit, Miller said that they weren’t quite sure what to do with her since she wasn’t selling food for humans.
Ultimately, she said, “the city of Rochester recognized that there’s some uniqueness to me being here. It offers something innovative and different.”
In addition to homemade treats, Miller also offers unique toys, clothes and accessories for canine companions.
You can find her van lined up next to other (human) food trucks and trailers during the weekday lunch rush on 2nd Avenue Southwest in downtown Rochester. Additionally, Miller also plans to set up at local events, such as this summer's Rochesterfest.
