Public Leadership: Celebration with Stella & Chewy’s

Mayor Tom Barrett Proclaims Aug. 13th as “Stella & Chewy’s Day!”


As a part of our efforts to activate Milwaukee’s public leadership, Scale Up Milwaukee has been encouraging our elected officials to take the time to celebrate the “wins” throughout Milwaukee’s entrepreneurial community. We came across our first opportunity to celebrate when we learned that local company, Stella & Chewy’s was approaching their ten year anniversary next week and has plenty to celebrate!

Stella & Chewy’s was founded in 2003 by Marie Moody, combining her passion for animals with her entrepreneurial spirit and recognizing an undeserved market in the pet food industry. Ten years later, Stella & Chewy’s employees over 175 people, has an over 50,000 square-foot manufacturing facility and corporate office in the city of Milwaukee and its’ products are sold in over 3,500 select pet food retailers world-wide!
