I think it’s about time for a puppy update. Garçon is now 14 weeks old, and he’s doing great. He’s sleeping through the night, he hasn’t had an accident in nearly three weeks, and he’s starting to master basic commands like sit, lie down, and come. In fact, he’s supposed to graduate puppy class tonight. A big part of successfully training a puppy is finding treats that he or she loves. I know that some dogs will go wild for anything edible, but our little guy just isn’t that food motivated. It wasn’t until a friend brought him a gift from Stella & Chewy’s that we saw him go nuts for a treat. Stella & Chewy’s is a Milwaukee, WI based company that believes “that dogs and cats deserve to thrive on pure, simple, minimally processed food – the way nature intended.” Their founder, Marie Moody, couldn’t find any commercially available products that lived up to her nutritional standards for her dogs (Stella and Chewy), so with the help of veterinary nutritionists she developed a line of raw, freeze-dried meat treats and meals.
Stella & Chewy’s is yet another Inc. 5000 company. Their three-year growth rate was a modest (just kidding) 228%, which took them to $17.2 million in revenue last year. The market for high-end, nutritionally sound pet products is really blowing up. Take a look at Stella & Chewy’s dog products and cat products to get a better sense of the fundamentals that the business is based on. Now Stella & Chewy’s is an interesting case when it comes to jobs. There is almost no evidence of past or present hiring, yet the Inc. 5000 blurb says that they went from 68 employees to 161 employees. I’m sure a lot of those are positions that wouldn’t interest a new college grad, but at least a few have to be. If you’re only looking at companies that advertise their jobs on the biggest sites, you’re missing out on a lot of opportunities. While I can’t tell you what’s available at Stella & Chewy’s, I recommend that you start going the extra mile to find companies that aren’t as vocal about their hiring. Sometimes a Contact page is better than a Careers page.
