In The City of Frederick, many local businesses make and manufacture their own products. From distilled spirits to dog treats, companies are choosing Frederick as a place to make their products and do business.
Made in Frederick is a feature that showcases these businesses and their products.
Allison Levitt is the owner of Bare Bites, based in in Downtown Frederick. Allison provided us with a behind-the-scenes tour of how Bare Bites provides 100% all-natural US-sourced pet treats.
How long has your company been in business?
The company was established in 2011, but I did not pursue Bare Bites full-time until 2014.
What is your product/products?
We make all-natural dog, cat and horse treats. Our top seller is Bare Bites made with 100% USDA dehydrated beef liver, great for both dogs and cats. Our other brands of treats include, Brew Yahs, Yam Jams, Bare Bits, and our horse treat, Flax Jax.
What makes your product different?
All of our products are made using 100% all natural ingredients, source in the U.S.A. Our treats contain no preservatives, additives or fillers.
What do you want your customers to know about your product?
We want our customers to know that we are a women-owned, dog-driven company. Our products are made with only USA-sourced ingredients, and we buy local whenever possible. We care about our community and their pets. We are not on the shelves of Petco or PetSmart. We vow to always support the independent retailer.
Why are you located in Frederick?
We are located in Frederick because we live in downtown, and I also owned a pet retail store downtown for ten years before I started Bare Bites.
What does Frederick offer a company like yours?
A sense of community!
