Northern Virginia Pet Resort To Be Featured on MSNBC’s Your Business Show
SPRINGFIELD, Va., Feb. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Northern Virginia-based Olde Towne Pet Resort (OTPR) will be featured in an upcoming episode of MSNBC’s Your Business show, a program exclusively focused on issues affecting small business owners. The specific OTPR segment, which will be set to air in the next few months, will highlight OTPR’s pet boarding business and the recent expansion of its second location into Loudoun County, Virginia amidst a challenging economic climate. “The decision to expand our pet resort into the Loudoun community was easy to make,” shares Steve B. Jones, President of OTPR’s management company. “The county’s overall strong demographics and its proximity to Washington, DC were key in selecting Loudoun as the new home for our second location.”
The popular MSNBC show, which regularly airs on Sundays at 7:30 am and Saturdays at 5:30 am eastern and is hosted by Today Show small business contributor JJ Ramberg, will also highlight OTPR’s pet boarding site at its first and original Springfield, Virginia location. Additional spotlights as to how the two OTPR facilities in Springfield and Dulles collaborate and support each other’s operations will also be part of the upcoming segment.
“We are very excited to have this highly visible, national opportunity to share our passion and love for dogs with MSNBC’s Your Business viewers. Any chance we are afforded where we can share our story and convey just how much effort we put into elevating pet boarding service levels in the Northern Virginia region is one we will rise to happily,” shares OTPR’s President and founder, Ms. Leah Fried Sedwick.
“Ms. Sedwick and her family are long-time dog and animal lovers. During the Katrina hurricane that hit the Mississippi Gulf coast back in 2005, Ms. Sedwick and her family provided temporary boarding for many of the dogs caught up in the aftermath of the storm,” recounts OTPR marketing coordinator Sadaf Atashbarghi. “The Fried family has many such a story like the Katrina one. We are so proud their tradition of compassion and support for pets far and wide is one MSNBC finds is one worth sharing.”
