Dog Barkery expands into Old Manchester industrial site


MANCHESTER, CT – The owners of Leaps & Bones all-natural dog bakery and pet supply company have moved their popular Dog Barkery operation to a classic Manchester location – 35 Oakland Street.

In explaining the move, they said the bakery had simply outgrown the 300 square foot retail site in South Windsor and “decided to move the Barkery to a new, more industrial location”.

They added: “We found 35 Oakland Street while driving around looking for potential spaces last year. We were really happy it opened up as we had lived a few blocks away until about 2017 and This building has always had an interesting past.”

A lease has been concluded and part of the lower level of the old mill has been rehabilitated. The Barkery has been expanded by 600 square feet and also sports a retail storefront.

A ribbon-cutting event is scheduled for Oct. 14 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. with Mayor Jay Moran presiding over a traditional ribbon cutting at noon. The opening festivities will also include a food truck and a dessert truck.

Here’s what the owners are saying about the new digs:

“We have added a 3D Food Decorator to our upgraded bakery as well as new equipment for making our baked goods. We are proud to operate in local CT communities and to hire in said communities. This move from Barkery has been needed for some time, but we needed to find the right place for our vision of what our company considers important.We focus on rehabilitating and revitalizing the most often neglected and underutilized buildings for the benefit modernist approaches.

Leaps & Bones operates a third location, called Leaps & Bones Too, in Southington. It is also a rehabilitated mill.

“We love Connecticut and the uniqueness of New England and can’t think of a better place to operate our three locations,” the owners said.
