Paradise 4 Paws Takes Over Petco’s Pooch Hotel Brand
Chicago-based premium pet resort, Paradise 4 Paws, is taking over operations for Petco’s Pooch Hotel Brand and its properties, effective March 1.
Pooch Hotel, first opened in 2004 and acquired by Petco in 2011, is a boarding and day care destination for dogs that provides day and overnight care, including on-site grooming, spa and dog training services. Today, there are 10 Pooch Hotel destinations in California, Connecticut, Illinois, Massachusetts and Texas. Paradise 4 Paws will assume operations for all 10 Pooch Hotel locations in addition to its four existing Paradise 4 Paws locations near Chicago Midway Airport and O’Hare Airport, and at Dallas Fort Worth Airport and Denver International Airport, with another set to open at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport later this year.
“We’re confident Paradise 4 Paws is the right partner to take Pooch Hotel to the next level,” said Jason Michal, Petco’s vice president of emerging business. “With a proven track record in the pet boarding business and the same high standards for animal care and superior customer service, they have the right experience, leadership and resources to continue to expand and improve upon Pooch Hotel’s past success and its compelling business model.”
