There's a new "natural" bakery and deli coming to North Richland Hills, but there's a twist: none of their fresh-baked treats and deli items are meant for human consumption.
At Wag N' Wash Food & Bakery, a franchise that has 15 locations in eight states, you can wash your own pup at self-service stations, have your dog's nails trimmed after a bath or utilize full grooming services, according to a press release. After your pooch's spa day, you'll be able to treat them to a selection of natural dog foods and house-made baked goods and deli items.
Pumpkin ravioli, carob muffins, Poochie Sushi, turkey loaf — everything on this menu is created just for dogs, and you can even order custom-made birthday cakes that can feed up to four large dogs or eight small pooches. Even if you're not grabbing a pie for your dog, there's a pet store-sized selection of dog food with an emphasis on all-natural kibbles. There's even a selection of raw foods and freeze-dried foods from brands like Primal, perfect for the paleo pup in your life.
The DFW dog wonderland, slated to open in late August or September, is part of the second phase of development for North Tarrant Marketplace, a "grocery-anchored community retail center" located at the intersection of North Tarrant Parkway and Precinct Line Road. Kroger, currently open, is the anchor tenant in phase one of the development, and the second phase is anchored by L.A. Fitness and will also soon be home to businesses like Banfield Vet Clinic, Jersey Mike's Subs and Mattress Firm.
