This past weekend was the annual Junior League of Nashville fundraiser, ‘Tis the Season Holiday Marketplace, at The Factory in Franklin, TN.  It was the first time our store had participated in a show of any kind, and it was busy, exhausting and fun.  We had an excellent booth location, and the Junior League volunteers took great care of us.  On Saturday morning, I was having a quick, pre-show breakfast in the merchant lounge area, and these two nice guys, Mike Quaranta and Marston Maddox, sat across from me at the table.

This is what I found out about their venture: Two Good Dogs is an all-natural dog treat company based in Nashville, TN.  Founded in the Spring of 2009, it’s named in honor of Mike’s two dogs, Rocco and Chico.  When the pups began having health issues and required a diet change, Mike began researching canine nutrition and experimenting with meal and treat recipes.  In the process, he developed Granola Barks.
