Texas Entrepreneur Featured On CNBC'S – THE BIG IDEA

July 10, 2008 // Franchising.com // (Plano, TX) – Carlotta Lennox and her company, Hey Buddy, were featured on CNBC's national television show called The Big Idea. The shows experts and host declared Hey Buddy the next million dollar idea. Ms. Lennox, a single mom, entrepreneur and professional model, has developed and patented the World's first vending machine for dogs.

While visiting a park in Miami, Ms. Lennox could not help but notice the large number of dogs and their parents that were playing fetch with sticks and had no water for their thirsty dogs. It was at that moment she realized that a vending machine for dogs could be the answer. It appears that her inclination was right. Since that day in 1998, Hey Buddy has gone from conception to patented reality. With locations already in Texas, Florida, Georgia and Arkansas, Ms. Lennox and her partners are franchising the business nationwide. Because of the rapid growth of pet friendly destinations like dog parks, hotels, apartments, rest stops and shopping malls, Hey Buddy is uniquely positioned to accommodate the needs of busy pet parents with a convenient and affordable solution that satisfies an unfilled need in the $40+ Billion Dollar pet industry.
