Abbie Kramer is not your typical kid. Five years ago, when she was just shy of seven years old, her parents offered a golden opportunity: $100 to start her own business.

Inspired by her love for her dogs and her cat, Abbie began making pet treats, whipping up her own special concoctions: Miss Abbie’s Pet Treats.

Within one month, Abbie and her family began selling the all-natural Miss Abbie’s Treats at the Toledo Farmers’ Market and they continue to see large sales.

“We go through typically 200 pounds of bones on a Saturday, 30 pounds of pig ears, and then our number one treat is our chicken jerky, followed by bacon and liver,” said Abbie’s mom, Beth.

In 2016, the family opened an official online store at missabbiespettreats.com to augment their weekly sales at the Farmers’ Market. The results have been phenomenal: in last six months, the business grew three times as fast as it did at the beginning.

But despite the rapid expansion, for Abbie— now 12— and her family, the process of making the treats is just the same as it was when they first began five years ago.

“We try not to let any part of the animal go to waste,” Beth said. “We get our bones directly from a couple of different farmers in the area and cut them ourselves, which is why none of them are straight. We handle everything very carefully.”
