Press release: Treats Unleashed
Treats Unleashed announces the acquisition of the five remaining Bentley’s Pet Stuff retail locations in the St. Louis and Kansas City markets. Over the coming months, the five new Treats Unleashed locations will be remodeled to refresh the storefront and will offer a wide array of products catering to both dogs and cats, including a new pet bakery, self-wash stations and grooming. The bakeries are expected to be up and running by the end of this year, while grooming and self-wash renovations will take place in 2020.
Bentley’s Pet Stuff—a family-owned, multi-unit healthy pet foods retailer founded by Lisa and Giovanni Senafe, along with entrepreneur Marcus Lemonis, host of CNBC’s reality series, “The Profit”—expanded into the St. Louis market in 2016, opening eight shops in competition with Treats Unleashed. Five of the St. Louis Bentley’s locations have since closed, and Treats Unleashed recently acquired the remaining three Bentley’s locations in Cottleville, Wildwood and South Kirkwood. Additionally, Treats Unleashed acquired the remaining two Bentley’s locations in the north Kansas City market in Tremont Square and Shoal Creek.
Following the acquisition, the local management and sales teams of Bentley’s Pet Stuff have joined Treats Unleashed, as Treats Unleashed plans to continue offering the same friendly service, expertise, and quality of natural pet products carried in the store. Many staple brands such as Fromm Family Pet Foods, Primal and Stella & Chewy’s will remain on the shelves, however, Treats Unleashed also plans to vastly expand the product selection by bringing in a wide variety of new products, as well as a bakery to offer fresh-baked pet treats and custom pet cakes. Every product on the shelf will be hand-selected by Teresa Miller, Treats Unleashed’s owner and founder.
“With this acquisition, we are excited to welcome the local Bentley’s teams to Treats Unleashed, and we look forward to introducing many more customers to the Treat Unleashed experience,” said Teresa Miller, Treats Unleashed owner and founder. “This expansion not only allows us to grow our presence in the St. Louis and Kansas City communities, but it also allows us to continue our mission of investing in our local pet communities. We are very excited to show this new group of customers what Treats Unleashed has to offer, and we look forward to becoming a part of the lives of many more pets by helping pet parents make healthy choices for their pets.”
Treats Unleashed sells all-natural dog and cat food, fresh-baked pet treats, pet care essentials, toys, grooming products and more for four-legged friends. The company cares about helping pet parents make educated choices for their pets, believes that good health begins with quality nutrition and an active lifestyle and strives to build lifelong relationships.
