K9 Resorts Partners with Father-Son Duo to Bring Seven Locations to Colorado and Florida

May 22, 2024 // Franchising.com // FANWOOD, N.J. - K9 Resorts Luxury Pet Hotel has announced a multi-unit signed agreement across two states, bringing five new resorts to Denver, Colorado and two to the greater Clearwater area in Florida.

Behind the seven-unit deal are Mike and Thomas Esposito, a father-son duo with a passion for franchising. The Esposito’s are both Brown alumni, and followed the same path working on Wall Street at Goldman Sachs after graduating. Mike spent 28 years at the firm, 20 of those as a partner, before deciding to personally invest in multiple franchises in the restaurant industry. Thomas always knew that he wanted to break into franchising, and in seeing K9 Resorts’ booming franchise opportunity, he knew the time was now. Thomas’ business background, knowledge of the pet care industry and passion for dogs combined with his father’s extensive business and franchising background will make for the ultimate partnership.

“After finding K9 Resorts and meeting with Jason and Steven Parker, there was no doubt that this was a franchise I wanted to be a part of,” said Mike. “K9 Resorts checked off all of the boxes that I was looking for in a franchise. I am excited to co-own seven K9 Resorts locations with my son and contribute to that growth, while teaching him the ins and outs of franchising.”

“I worked with the pet care industry during my time at Goldman Sachs, and I have never seen a business model quite like K9 Resorts,” said Thomas. “We’re excited to bring K9 Resorts’ high standard of pet care to new communities. As a pet owner myself, I know that dogs are true members of the family, and K9 Resorts is a place where I would want to send my dog.”
