About the Company

Lucky Paws is a premier manufacturer of cakes for pets. They produce their name brand products Petcakes, the 1st and only microwavable pet treat, which can be made at home in less than 3 minutes! Each recipe is crafted from the finest human-grade ingredients and will never have harmful additives or preservatives. 

The Challenge

Lucky Paws had recently received a blockbuster order from Kroger on their new product and needed to quickly scale up an assembly line to meet their client’s demands. This line only required to operate for one month to complete their product run. Lucky Paws was hesitant to use staffing agencies due to quality and fulfillment issues. They also found it challenging to post jobs, interview, and hire people for just one month.

How Upshift Met the Challenge

Upshift allowed Lucky Paws to post their shifts immediately and fill them within hours. They were able to ramp production up and down as necessary to meet  goals without the labor issues they would have experienced with traditional staffing agencies.

Thanks to Upshift’s industry-leading digital platform and our Upshifters’ hard work, Lucky Paws exceeded their production goals and finished early. They continue to utilize Upshift whenever orders come in to meet demand.

“I don’t see us ever going back to the traditional staffing firms…”


“The best part about Upshift is that it allows us time to try out folks. In the regular interviewing process you are taking people at their word and everyone puts their best foot forward but you really don’t know how they will perform until you see them on the floor.
It’s been really great for us in our production line for the cold brew coffee maker. It’s a light assembly job that Upshifters can come in and work. I don’t see us ever going back to the traditional staffing firms because this allows us to think outside the box. It lets us give people opportunities who may have not had them otherwise.”
