Gourmutt's Bakery is Raleigh's only on-site bakery for dogs. They offer human grade treats, cakes and ice cream as well as premium dog and cat food, toys, chews, supplements, spa products, collars and gift items.
This month's leading lady, Tina Musselwhite, and her husband got a golden retriever puppy back in 1999 as a puppy mill rescue. The puppy had severe allergies by 6 months of age, so Tina started baking treats for her. In early 2000, Tina started Gourmutt's Bakery as a wholesale bakery in her home part-time while she worked full-time in human resources. In 2004, she quit her full-time job and opened a retail location in North Raleigh. By 2007, Tina had expanded to a larger retail space and added the boutique part of the business. Today, Tina has one full-time employee and 2 part-time employees at Gourmutt's Bakery!
In addition to Gourmutt's Bakery, Tina is a Rodan + Fields consultant - talk about an ambitious woman!
In 2015, a friend introduced Tina to the line of anti-aging skin care that was created by the creators of Proactiv. After using the products and seeing first-hand the results, she started learning about the business aspect and realized she would be crazy to not jump on board with this young company that is experiencing 106.5% sales growth yearly. In less than six months as a consultant, Tina has earned 3 promotions and pay increases. The growth and excitement of Rodan + Fields gives her even more passion to excel at both of her businesses!
Hello! I'm Carli, a girl originally from Ohio, who could not be more proud to call Raleigh home the last 12+ years. By day, I work at SAS Institute but when I'm not working, I'm a mom to an amazing boy and 2 dogs. In my free time, I love to stay active working out, playing sports, traveling, crafting, attending a sports game/concert, or shopping!
