The Safest Dog Treats For Your Pet
28 year-old Saraya Burke found her company SaySay Cakes four years ago by baking goodies for her dog. SaySay Cakes is an allnatural dog bakery. The treats are created using only all natural and organic ingredients and are hand-made from scratch. No artificial ingredients, colors, preservatives, or refined sugars are used. SaySay. The company was birthed right in her kitchen after noticing the reaction her dog received from eating the treats she bought. Saraya said;
Before starting SaySay Cakes Saraya was and still works as an Anesthia tech. Starting her own business, especially to create doggie treats was the last thing on her mind. With 10 years of experience working in the medical field she always imagined herself as being a nurse.
The name SaySay Cakes is after the nickname her aunt gave her SaySay. Saray and her boyfriend came up with the idea of using that as the name while on vacation in Puerto Rico, with adding Cakes at the end to make it cute and catchy as she explain. The concept of her SaySay Cakes started in May of 2014, but it really did not grow into becoming a real business until September of 2015. In the creation of SaySay Cakes she took many interesting routes to build her business from observing dogs at the doggie park, taking Wilton classes, attending pet expo’s to familiarize herself with the market, to showcasing SaySay Cakes live on Atlanta’s popular morning show. Saraya explained what makes SaySay Cakes different from other dog treats is;
Interestingly, through this interview we found out SaySay Cakes was picked to audition for the popular show aired on the ABC network Shark Tank. Even though they only made to the 2nd round of auditions. Following this milestone she also completely sold out all her treats at the Pet Expo in Las Vegas earlier this month. She explained this as a huge milestone because the expo receives close to 15000 attendees per year. One thing I have learned doing this interview is consistency and perseverance are key to creating success.
