A new restaurant concept is coming to Michigan -- only this one isn't for humans; it's for dogs.
If you are like many dog owners who derive immense joy out of spoiling their four-legged companions, then you may be interested to learn that a new restaurant for dogs will soon be opening in Grand Rapids.
The restaurant cleverly named The Beastro: Fresh Canine Cuisine will be located at 2309 44th Street across from The Candied Yam restaurant. Both establishments are owned by local entrepreneur and restauranteur Jessica Ann Tyson.
According to the restaurant's website, Tyson's late canine companion, Skip, a Bishon Frise who lived to the age of fifteen, was the main inspiration for opening The Beastro.
The Beastro will allow dog owners to create custom meals from high-quality human-grade foods that are safe for dogs to consume.
According to sources, the meals are made with a base of brown rice. Pet owners can then choose fresh meat for protein, vegetables, fruits, and supplement options based on their pet's dietary needs and preferences.
The website even shows a colorful "barkcuterie" board filled with fresh fruits, vegetables, and dog treats. This would be the ultimate gift for your dog's birthday or any occasion when you want to give your dog an extra special treat.
While we don't yet know a specific opening date for The Beastro, local sources have reported that the restaurant is currently hiring and plans to open within the next couple of weeks.
If you or someone you know is interested in working for The Beastro, you can inquire by filling out the form on the restaurant's website.
We love this unique pet-themed idea and can't wait for the grand opening.
