Pet bakery opens in Danville

DANVILLE — The Old Farm Village shopping center is the now the home of The Bone Appétit Bakery, owned and operated by animal lover Suzanne Kudlaty.

Kudlaty comes to the area with a love of animals and a wealth of small business ownership experience.

“I recently sold a business in Bloomington that I had for six years — The Joyful Hound,” she said.

That business was a mobile dog grooming service that offered her clients a convenient way to have their pets taken care of. She also offered Reiki services for dogs. Reiki is an ancient Japanese technique of healing that uses the healer’s palms to manipulate the animal’s energy.

With her children now away at college, Kudlaty had an opportunity to make a change and decided that Danville was the place to set up shop.

“I live in Avon,” she said. “I grew up in Crawfordsville, so this area really feels like home.”

She completely renovated her space in the Old Farm Village.

“This space had been a salon and was really in bad shape,” she said. “There were layers of wallpaper to remove and sinks all over. It took a good amount of effort, but we did it and opened in December.”

Kudlaty said getting the word out that she is open has been her main challenge, since several of the Old Farm Village units have closed and many people have not really been keeping an eye on the area.

“But this is a very dog-friendly area,” she said. “Everyone here has a dog.”

She believes that once people come in for a visit and realize how good her treats are for their animals, they will visit often.

All treats made for The Bone Appétit Bakery are from all natural ingredients.

“They’re made with human food in a human bakery from my recipes,” Kudlaty said. “And they’re all fresh, with no preservatives or dyes. And, yes, I’ve tasted them all myself. They are a little dry, but good.”
