Acquiring Pampered Pets Inn enables us to provide extraordinary care and compassion to the animals entrusted to us.
Mooresville, NC (PRWEB) December 02, 2011
Lake Norman Pet Spa and Resort Corporation has acquired Mooresville based Pampered Pets Inn located off Interstate 77 at Exit 33 in Mooresville. The acquisition is being funded by Aquesta Bank. Pampered Pets Inn, inspired by the look, feel and amenities of a magnificent Tuscan Spa, is Lake Norman’s premier full-service luxury pet hotel, offering area residents an affordable high-end alternative for caring for their dogs and cats when they are away.
Founder Terry Bermani created Pampered Pets Inn in 2007 responding to a growing need for premium boarding options, as pet owners were increasingly unhappy with traditional kennels known for their dangerous wire cages, limited interactive physical activity for the pets and unfortunately less than optimal sanitary conditions. Terry has built a flourishing business based on her holistic approach to the well-being and luxurious treatment of pets in an interactive and fun setting. Her business has succeeded at creating a loyal customer base. Terry says, “The DaDante’s bring the energy, capital and creativity to take Pampered Pets Inn to the next level” .
Bermani is selling her business in order to join her husband of 31 years in California, where he has been working for the past several years. Concerned with finding just the right buyers, Bermani carefully vetted all offers. “I was looking for someone who shared my deep passion for animals. Tony and Judy DaDante fit the bill. I am so grateful that they have stepped forward,” states Bermani. “I am completely comfortable turning Pampered Pets Inn over to them and I am confident that they will take excellent care of our clientele and expand upon my vision. I will be spending the next 60 days with the DaDante’s to insure a smooth transition.”
Tony and Judy DaDante have a proven record of success in the global business arena and a passion for protecting animals . Known for their philanthropic contributions to numerous charities including Cancer foundations, ASPCA and Humane Societies across the country as well as the North Carolina State Veterinary Teaching Hospital, the DaDante’s are making a difference. Tony, CEO of the Change Execution Group, is a nationally recognized expert in the field of Executive Development and Coaching and is considered a thought leader in the field of leading high profile merger, acquisition and corporate turnarounds. Former Mattel Toys SVP, he is often credited for being and integral part of the overwhelming success of the Hot Wheels and Barbie brands internationally and helping to orchestrate the acquisition of The American Girl Doll franchise. In his work today with a client list that speaks to a who’s who (BP, Shell, Compass, Harley-Davidson, and Ritz Carlton), he teaches what exceptional customer service and values based leadership is. His plans for Pampered Pets Inn are centered in creating a Ritz Carlton values based environment where greatness is achieved one happy pet at a time. The DaDante’s credit their core Christian values and genuine compassion for the underdog as the foundation for their success and impact.
“We have zero tolerance for pet abuse and have made it a personal challenge to eradicate it,” states Tony. “Furthermore, acquiring Pampered Pets Inn enables us to provide extraordinary care and compassion to the animals entrusted to us.” The DaDante’s are excited about supporting the Ryan Newman Foundation, which encourages families to adopt rescued pets, and Nascar’s Greg Biffle Foundation, which advocates improving the well-being of animals. Both of which were former drivers under the Hot Wheels Brand while with Penske and Roush racing.
Judy DaDante is perfectly poised to expand the success of Pampered Pets Inn, having extensive marketing and customer service experience with companies including FedEx, Robert Mondavi Wines and DIRECTV. In addition, she has developed skills akin to a dog whisperer, having worked at Nashville’s premiere pet spa and raising dogs for nearly 35 years, including three generations of Golden Retrievers. “Throughout our lives, we have raised, saved, spoiled and loved dogs and cats across the globe. It’s what we do and who we are. We wanted to own a business where we could offer an unsurpassed level of service to our true clientele – the pets.”
Immediate plans are underway to expand the service and value propositions which include the introduction of a fleet of pet taxi’s offering convenient pick-up, check-in and return transportation for busy pet parents, curbside express check-in, installing hi-tech webcams throughout the facility, comforting massage and acupuncture, a doggy themed swimming pool, and play areas with hypo-allergenic mud-free K-9 grass. “Whether they come for the day or spend their whole vacation at Pampered Pets Inn, your pets are an important part of the family and deserve the very best care and attention when they are our guests,” emphasizes Judy.
With heated floors, free puppy socialization classes, many acres of natural romp and play space, “yappy” hours and birthday parties, Lake Norman area dogs and cats and their parents will receive royal treatment at Pampered Pets Inn.
