Business as (Un)usual
Most businesses are frightfully normal. After all, what sells better than common goods and services that everyone needs? But humans are unusual creatures with unusual habits and desires, which has allowed some strange businesses to carve out a niche for themselves.
These 12 businesses are among those that have eschewed mass appeal for shock value, intrigue and the just plain weird. Would you ever patronize one of these companies?
12. Just Food for Dogs
You might have heard of cat cafes, or even dog-friendly restaurants, but have you ever heard of a restaurant just for dogs? If you’ve ever seen comedian Tony Hinchcliffe’s stand-up special “One Shot,” then you know there is a restaurant in Los Angeles called Just Food for Dogs that very much lives up to its name.

Potato Parcel writes custom messages on potatoes and delivers them to anyone. Nothing says love like a potato you can’t eat because it’s been written on.
