Franchise Interviews meets with the K-9 Resorts Daycare & Luxury Hotel franchise. Jason and Steven Parker, co-founders of Fanwood-based K-9 Resorts Daycare & Luxury Hotel, first got in the dog business when as boys they wanted a dog, but their parents said they weren’t responsible enough. Fueled by that, they began walking neighbors’ dogs for money and it grew and grew until they were making some pretty impressive money. They decided to take this love of dogs and their honed business sense to open up K-9 Resorts and entered the franchising game as the youngest franchisors in the entire franchise industry. They’re entering a big 2014, riding the wave of success and buzz from last year, and will be opening up 5 new locations. 9 is the magic number for K-9 this year as they enter their 9th year in business with a goal of ending the year with 9 locations.
ABOUT K9 RESORTS DAYCARE & LUXURY HOTEL
K-9 RESORTS DAYCARE & LUXURY HOTEL was founded in 2005 by brothers Steven and Jason Parker in Fanwood, N.J. When in their early teens, their parents denied them a dog of their own, so the entrepreneurial pair opened a professional pet-sitting business to prove they were not only willing, but ready to care for a dog. That business not only became a highly profitable enterprise that they sold for a six-figure sum in 2006, that revenue became the expansion fuel for their burgeoning K-9 Resorts business. The business, which is the only facility in New Jersey to have been rated Number 1 by multiple major publications, is now positioned for franchise growth throughout the Northeast U.S. K-9 Resorts was ranked Number 1 in its category by the Courier Times and by New Jersey Monthly.
In part 2, we hear advice from franchisees on why they purchased a franchise.

In Renee Daniel Flagler's new book, Still Raging, the rage escalates in this fast-paced sequel to Raging Blue as the battle between ex friends, Blue Holiday and Mia Reynolds, takes a new turn when inexplicable things begin to happen that could potentially destroy Blue and Gavin Gray’s relationship. Blue suspects that Mia is behind the bizarre happenings and is determined to get to the bottom of it all.
Peyton King, Blue’s friend and wife of star basketball player, Kendrick King, is dragged into the mayhem when Mia shows up on their doorstep to drop the staggering bomb that Kendrick could be the father of her infant daughter. Mia isn’t interested in breaking up their marriage; she just wants Kendrick’s money so she could recover her lavish lifestyle.
Peyton and Kendrick’s marriage has finally gotten on track but Mia’s news threatens to rock the happy foundation they built. Peyton resorts to desperate measures to regain a semblance of peace and to get Mia and that illegitimate child of hers out of their lives for good.

Join the Gist of freedom and guest Marian Douglas-Ungaro as we discuss the history of African American Resorts! Join us in NYC www.MalcolmXfilmfestival.com The Fox Lake resort community was developed specifically for African Americans in the 1930s. Similar to other ethnic groups, African Americans chose to build their own institutions because they enjoyed the fellowship with their family, friends and colleagues. These enclaves were not established for us by us simply because we were rejected by Jim Crow. Today, in contrary to the myth that blacks rather integrate than celebrate and preserve their heritage, Fox Lake is still a successful black community. Its traditions are still maintained by many second- and third-generation owners, who occupy a large number of the cottages.
Fox Lake was also a recreational destination for young African Americans who lived within driving distance. They came to swim at the beach, dance and socialize. During World War II, black troops stationed at Baer Field in Fort Wayne were invited to the resort during their free weekends. Numerous annual meetings of black fraternal organizations, churches and alumni groups were also held at the resort.
