Based in America’s heartland of Greenville, Illinois, Marcoot Jersey Creamery is excited to bring 7 generations of their family-owned dairy farm cheesemaking to the pet industry with the launch of Dog-O’s Cheesy Chompers - 100% Cheese Dog Treats. Sourced, produced and packaged daily on the Marcoot family farm, Dog-O’s dog treats offer unmatched quality of fresh-sourced cheese in a tasty, crunchy “O” shape that both dogs and retailers love.
Following their exciting launch earlier this year, Dog-O’s is pleased to now announce the company’s growing expansion with key distributor partnerships spanning throughout the Midwest and East Coast. The newest distribution partnerships include:
● Burlo Pet Services, Inc. (WI, MN, IA, & IL),
● Crystal Coast Pets (NC & SC),
● Garver Feeds (IL, MO, & IN),
● Natural Pet Direct (NY),
● Prince Corp (Midwest) and
● Fox River Dairy (IL and MO)
“We are extremely proud of our transparent Farm to Fork business concept and we work hard every day to ensure we make excellent products for our customers. We are thrilled with our successful list of distributor partnerships and appreciate the support of the pet industry as a whole and retailers that believe in our products as much as we do. We will continue to work hard to be sure that we earn their trust,” states Beth Marcoot Young, Co-Owner of Marcoot Jersey Creamery.
Beth’s sister and Co-Owner of Marcoot Jersey Creamery Amy Marcoot adds, “As an artisan company, Dog-O's is made with the same care and consideration that our cheese for humans is made. We are so honored that our distributor partners believe in our vision and mission and are poised to help bring the fun and quality of Dog-O’s to pet specialty retailers and their pet-parent customers.”
Transition into the pet industry was natural for the Marcoot sisters, from their seventh-generation dairy farm. Proudly woman-owned, Dog-O’s was inspired by the two sisters, alongside their lifelong best friend and business partner Audie Wall. This trio drew inspiration from their lifelong love of their pets and their passion for farming and producing the highest quality cheese for people and families across the U.S.
Dog-O’s inaugural product, Cheesy Chompers, are available now in two sizes: Small Dog and Medium/Large Dog, with plans for further expansion and development of the brand in the very near future. PDQ displays are also available for a shelf-friendly, eye catching presentation. Educational training materials for retailers are also available from the company to help promote new/repeat business.
