Ampersand is all about bringing things together. For us, that means you & your dog. We understand the important relationship between a dog mama and their pup. They are family and part of everything we do - including snacking.
The sharing of food has always been an important part of how people show their love for one another. We gather together for daily meals, we introduce ourselves over first date dinners and celebrate holidays around the dining table. Sharing a snack with our furry friends extends that love by building trust and promoting bonding. We heart dogs.
Stephanie Kaptein, Founder
Before starting Ampersand Bakehouse, Stephanie worked as a foresight strategist at a consulting agency. She had the opportunity to redefine the future of food with companies such as Campbell's, Tyson and McCain's, but was left craving the physical interaction with food itself. After a summer of cakes, donuts and cookies, Stephanie shifted her focus to dog-friendly snack mixes that she could share with her french bulldog Archie.
