DALLAS, Jan. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Skiptown, the tech-enabled hub for pups and their people, announced it is expanding into Dallas this year and plans to open locations in Atlanta and Nashville by the end of 2022.
Skiptown has secured thousands of members since opening the first location in Charlotte, NC just five months ago in the midst of the global pandemic.
Skiptown offers an indoor/outdoor turfed dog park, a bar for humans, dog daycare, overnight boarding, a grooming salon, and dog walking services. From valet daycare drop-off to "Skippers" who monitor the pups at play, Skiptown's dog-focused design and high-end hangout is about giving peace of mind to pet parents and joy to their four-legged family members. Skiptown's proprietary technology platform streamlines booking and account management, sends multiple daily visit reports, pairs dogs to playgroups based on personality type, and allows for a fully customized experience for every dog.
"We've seen what we can do in one city, and we have the resources and focus to expand this concept nationally," said Meggie Williams, Skiptown's CEO. "Dogs are family, and with many people working from home now, more people than ever before are adding pups to their families."
Backed by private investors and high-profile venture capital firms, including Techstars Ventures, Bull Creek Capital, and Firebrand Ventures, Skiptown is poised for growth, especially in light of the anticipated, post-COVID surge in demand for convenience-driven pet care and high-end hangouts.
Foundry Commercial is assisting with site selection for future Skiptown locations.
