Yesterday was a big day for us here at Freshpet. Our friend Dr. Katy was a guest on the Today Show with Kathie Lee and Hoda (where she got to feed some Olympic champions our Freshpet Dog Joy treats), and the Freshpet truck hit the streets of New York!
In honor of National Love Your Pet Day, we asked pet parents all day long to take the #FeedFresh pledge, promising to feed their pups and kitties fresh, nutritious food. Find out more about the pledge here: freshpet.com/feedfresh. The truck was a big part of it, with pet parents all over the city pledging to #FeedFresh in return for a coupon or 1lb slice & serve roll.
Zack, one of the newest members of the Freshpet team, shares his experiences on the only food truck for dogs and cats:
We got our day started in the morning by hanging out in the downtown neighborhood of TriBeca where we met our pal Bumper who LOVED our Dog Joy Turkey Bacon strips. It was a real pleasure to tell pet parents about Freshpet. They were all super excited to give our recipes a try! Afterwards, we made our way to the East Village where we met some of the hippest pups and pet parents in town! Sandy the pit bull, in particular, was feeling very social and hung out with our truck team for quite some time!
From there, the truck made its way to Union Square and Madison Square Park. It was a very busy time of day, but there were plenty of pets and pet parents out on the town that were eager to taste Freshpet for the very first time. Z the Chow, whose dad told us is usually very finicky with his food, couldn’t get enough of our Dog Joy treats!
As the day wound to a close, the truck had one more stop to make: the Meatpacking District on the west side of Manhattan. The neighborhood hosted Social Media Week, a yearly gathering of the best minds and personalities on social media. And as we all know, the Internet LOVES pets, so we had a lot of fun talking with the pet-loving social media-ites. It was a great day to take the Freshpet truck out into the city. Despite the chilly weather, the pets and their parents were out in full force. And we were happy to give some Freshpet recipes away to our new friends! If you missed out on the fun, don’t worry!
