Love A Local Business has gone to the dogs — the dog kennel, that is! July’s winner of our LoveALocalBusiness.com Hiring Grant is Marie’s Bed and Biscuits of Charlotte, Michigan. Marie’s is a full-service dog kennel that cares for dogs while their owners are on vacation.
Founded in the 1990s, Brad and Jen Stanke purchased the kennel in 2006 after they had a great experience leaving their dog there while they were on their honeymoon. Now, many years later, the kennel is still thriving as a key member of Charlotte’s pet-loving community.
Brad says that the company will use the grant to expand the business. Right now, space is tight: The kennel has been full every weekend this summer. Marie’s would love to be able to provide more services to dog owners by having a larger facility or by providing doggy day care services.
Congrats to Brad, Jen, and everyone else at Marie’s Bed and Biscuit! We hope this grant improves a “ruff” economy for them!
It’s not too late for your business to win August’s $25,000 grant. Make sure to nominate your business at LoveALocalBusiness.com.
