Our Story

Our story starts with Australian Shepherd puppies, Harlee and Mim. One of the half-sisters had a compromised immune system and (luckily) a family ready and willing to help.

In 2014, the veterinary and pet health community was starting to focus more on nutrition, fresh ingredients and balanced diets as both preventative and curative measures. Harlee’s vet recommended a fresh diet to help with her problems.

Without any good choices on the market, our founders started making their own meals based on guidance from their veterinarian. And, wow what a difference it made in Harlee’s health. But, wow what a lot of work.

It was worth it. So why wasn’t there already a pet food company providing a healthier solution? Didn’t they know that nutrition is the best medicine? Our founders did. And just like that, Nom Nom was born.

So the team partnered with one of the leading board certified veterinary nutritionists in the country and started production on nutritionally-balanced meals that every pet owner could feel good about feeding their companions.

Today, Nom Nom employees from the San Francisco bay area to Chicago, IL, to Nashville, TN, fill orders across the contiguous US. Making real, good food for dogs and cats.

Our now 177-person, 106-dog and 83-cat team is doubling down on our values of integrity of ingredients, ownership of process, pre-portioning of meals and quality of customer experience across all of our facilities.

We’re still preparing and portioning meals based on Harlee’s age, breed, weight and goals. As well as Rowdy’s, Lucipurr’s, Arfur’s and Michael Scotty’s.

Our people & their pets

We have a committed team of folks willing to go the distance to improve the lives of dogs and cats. Truly. And you’ll never guess how many of them have personally prepared and packed Nom Nom meals. From operations to engineering to R&D to customer experience, every team and each individual plays an important role in our mission. So you can trust us when we say your pets are in good hands.
