Happy Cat Hotel Franchising Awards 1st franchise in Virginia



Press Release: The Happy Cat Hotel & Spa

The Happy Cat Hotel & Spa, the only American concept of franchised pet daycare dedicated solely to feline companions, recently announced the award of its first franchise operation. The Happy Cat Hotel & Spa in Alexandria, Virginia will open after a grand opening ceremony scheduled for Sunday, November 14, 2021.

Leanne McRoberts and Jackie Warbis co-own their new 20-room luxury hotel and exclusive feline grooming center. They got a construction lease at the Duke Street Center in Alexandria, Virginia.

“This is an important milestone for our brand,” said Chris Raimo, Founder and CEO of Happy Cat Hotel & Spa franchise group. “We have focused on building scalable growth and finding the right partners to franchise our exclusive cat daycare concept. Our new owners, Jackie and Leanne, will be making great additions to our growing pride as cat lovers, continuing our mission to disrupt the “Catus Quo”.

The concept was created a few years ago by Chris and Meg Raimo, who previously ran a home animal viewing service. Alarmed by the withdrawn and unstable behavior visible in a majority of cats on tour, the duo decided to diversify and create a daycare strictly reserved for felines. As the brand indicates, this is neither a cattery nor a kennel, but rather a luxurious feline oasis, where cats can enjoy the same level of attention and care as in the overwhelming number of dog day care centers.

The Happy Cat Hotel & Spa has just completed its busiest summer season in its history and is currently developing additional franchise expansion opportunities in New York City, Texas and Connecticut.

The Happy Cat Hotel is the global pet care franchise dedicated only to our feline companions. Part kennel, part pet grooming, and part pet supply operation, each Happy Cat Hotel has over a dozen luxurious boarding rooms with themes and toys. All grooming needs can be booked on site, and each location has a full retail operation stocked with a wide variety of feline foods, toys, and other products.
