Carolina Prime Pet, Inc. was founded by owner and President Van H. Brown, the original “porkybone” in 1998. During this time he was dabbling in a few different things and putting time into some big ideas he had been cultivating over the years. Van has always been an entrepreneur, and the birth of Carolina Prime Pet came at time in his career when he was transitioning from several successful businesses in the human food industry.
He happened to stumble upon a great deal on a large quantity of pet products. And so, of course Van took advantage of that deal; which introduced him to the pet industry as a whole. Through his time working on selling those products; he made many good contacts in the industry. But, probably his biggest discovery was finding out how much people love their dogs, and how rewarding it is to make quality treats that owners can feel good about and their dogs love!
