About

The Production of PUP POPS

I'm extremely excited to be where I am in the business! We have 92% of the work done. I am very greatful for your support! Funding is needed to manufacturer Pup Pops. All previous steps have been completed as we are ready to take the product into the manufacturing stage ASAP: 

  • Business Plan completed - Check!
  • Business Model Canvas completed - Check!
  • Pet industry research, trends, and market share evaluated - Check!
  • Product formulations completed and tested by a food scientist - Check!
  • Formulas double checked by a second, independent food scientist - Check!
  • Product is approved by the AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Officials) and individual US states for sales - Check!
  • Packaging, labels, website are approved and purchased - Check!
  • Suppliers are ready to send ingredients to the manufacturer - Check!
  • Product name, "Pup Pops", and slogan "Cool Treats 4 Cool Dogs" are trademarked - Check!
  • Manufacturing date is scheduled for June 1st, 2015 - Check!

Risks and challenges

As previously mentioned, there are little risks to get the product launched as all the early steps to manufacturing are completed and/or have approval as I have been working on the business for six years.
As I look beyond manufacturing, the next exciting challenge will be getting Pup Pops into mass retail stores and online. We have a number of opportunties and avenues for this, and business exposure has been drastically increased due to social media, collaborations and partnerships formed. The pet/dog community is very supportive and welcoming.
Again, thank you for viewing: The Production of PUP POPS and showing your support!
