“AniMOTEL” (Pet Friendly Motel)
The new expansion coincides with the introduction of a new concept purely suited to people who want to spend the winter with their pet under the hot Florida sun. Birth of the “Richard’s Pet Friendly Motel” neighbor Richard’s Hotel – on the corner of US-1 and Wiley Street. “How many times do we have refused customers who are traveling with their pet? The number is reckoned by thousands over the years.
I was looking for the dream to convert one of our buildings, adapting to pets, build a enclo reserved for animals that freely circulate, offer unparalleled comfort to the animal and his master, and that a welcome kit surprising all this at a reasonable price “said Richard.
“I was unable to convert existing buildings simply because our annual occupancy rate almost always close to 100%. Only the acquisitions could allow such comversion and real estate are so resumed in value in recent years that the negotiations took longer than expected.”
Luckily I had a chance to negotiate with people I consider mentors in the evolution of my career for 25 years. One of the reasons for the customer enthusiasm for our units, besides the cleanliness, safety and proximity, are the affordable prices. In short, convert our existing units could not be an option. So we opted for expansion.
The adaptation of a building in “aniMHOTEL” is actually a highly innovative concept. Several hotels always offer some rooms for pets and their owners, but few are devoted 100% and even less stays which vary from one to six months. Neither more nor less, it’s like a small condo “dog and master”
that you can book year to year and who is a real “home” in Florida. Everything, absolutely everything, is adapted outside. Dog’s water fountain, paths, fences, landscaped and artistic design with colors and efigies of our pets, etc …. Obviously that prerequisites are required from owners and their Puppies, full respect of the rules of use, and cleanliness, but the concept wants as innovative as the chosen site is just facing a Spa exclusively for dogs and cats including gardienage services, grooming, etc …. Moreover, service mobile professionals (adapted vehicle – veterinary services) aid to treatment, mowing, grooming and various treatments will be offered to customers (as required) weekly in season. Everything pooch needs to also become a “snowbird”! “Richard’s Pet Friendly Motel” could also result in “Richard AniMOTEL” but President wished not to be confused with the immense diversity of animals, birds and exotic fish that make up the tropical gardens neat and mature vegetation of all of its properties.
