Houston residents Erin and Markos Hernandez are the franchise owners of Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming West University. They also own the Woof Gang Bakery Sugar Land location and are pleased to continue to provide area customers and their pets with healthy foods, quality products and professional pet grooming in a welcoming, neighborhood setting. They genuinely love animals and their own family includes a Schnoodle dog and a rescued cat. “We wanted to open a second location inside the Houston city limits and we chose West U because it is a great community of dog lovers. I grew up in this neighborhood and have shopped in this center since I was a girl,” said franchise owner Erin Hernandez. “Besides teaching customers about nutritious food, my favorite products to sell are iced cookies and cakes. I bake everything fresh in the store, including customized birthday cakes for dogs.”
