"Obviously, being very young, it's not easy. I'm still learning a lot," Quiroga said.
This young entrepreneur is coming up with creative recipes like "PB&J Sandwich," "Pot Pie," and of course "Texas BBQ."
"They are flavors you just can't find at the store," Quiroga said.
They even offer a weekly bakery item you can find at the Pearl Farmers Market.
This week it's "pumpkin pop tarts."
"Everybody is in the 'pumpkin' mood so we have do the same thing for the dogs. We can't leave them out," Quiroga said.
