COLA'S Story

The story of Cola's Kitchen is one of passion and love. Our dogs have always played an integral role in our lives. They've always been there, from the most trying of times to the happiest moments. They loved us unconditionally and cared for us most when we needed it. So Cola's Kitchen is our way of giving back. Read our story below to learn more about us and why we created Cola's Kitchen.

Meet Max. The inspiration behind everything. Max was a beautiful Doberman Pinscher with the sweetest temper. He loved to chase squirrels and cuddles equally. And yes, he was so good looking that he was featured in a few articles.

Meet Cola. A few months before Max’s passing, we rescued Cola from a dog-eating festival in East Asia.

Cola immediately bonded with Max. As if he had found his long lost older brother. They were inseparable. He frequently hung from Max's ears while trying to get his attention.

Max’s health started declining suddenly and he got diagnosed with DCM. His vet told us he has 3-6 months.

Max passed away just 3 weeks after he was diagnosed and left Cola behind. We were devastated.

A couple months later we became aware of the 16 brands that were linked to DCM according to an FDA investigation, one of which was Max's brand of dog food. This kickstarted deep research into the dog food industry to find a better alternative for Cola.

The research into the dog food industry was a rabbit hole of finding one awful fact after another. So we decided to cook for Cola ourselves and reached out to Dr. Goodarzi to formulate some recipes for Cola.

Turned out Dr. Goodarzi’s 8 years of research had been focused on the benefits of personalized diets. With Sina and Salma’s past experience in large-scale human food production, partnering with Dr. Goodarzi to help more dogs like Cola was a no-brainer.
