KSCO Pet Radio program interview on dog treats with Daisy Nicholas. owner and founder of Drool Central, January 24, 2021 (continued)
DAISY NICHOLAS: Yes, but I also carry freshly baked treat pies, mostly locally. I can’t ship them because they are fresh baked and flash frozen. So they have a very short shelf life. And now I have also introduced meals locally. The meals are fresh-frozen. I have started offering regular subscriptions locally and delivered to homes in Anchorage for $35 and up. But otherwise, for the lower 48, I offer free shipping if it’s $75 and above.
DAISY NICHOLAS: Yes, www.DroolCentral.com
LAURA PAKIS: I have to say, Daisy, you’re just an amazing woman. To come up with all this and create this on your own. I give you a lot of credit, plus I think being out in the wilderness toughens you up to take on this challenge of creating these great products for the dogs.
DAISY NICHOLAS: Yeah, thank you. I have a lot of products, and it is a one-woman show. I used to cook for people for so many years, and I mostly pleased a lot, but You will always get some who aren’t happy. I realized that I love the dogs as customers. I am so content with having dogs as customers. They’re just so adorable, and their faces show just how they feel. It is addictive.
LAURA PAKIS: Daisy, it’s been a real pleasure to talk with you and learn more about your business. I’ve never met anybody that started their own dog treat company and to hear how you got started and how much you care about your dog. You truly have your passion.
