MOORESVILLE, NC – Ike’s Dog Pub Play & Stay, a business “where dogs and people come together”, bringing dog daycare, boarding and entertainment services to Mooresville, Troutman, Statesville, Davidson, and Catawba county in North Carolina, is under new ownership.

Joe Vagnone, the Charlotte Area Managing Director with ENLIGN Business Brokers facilitated this sale between the sellers; Andrew and Danielle Katsamas, and Naomi Bailey, the buyer.  Ms. Bailey had this to say about working with Joe Vagnone:  “Making the decision to buy a business can be a stressful and overwhelming process. Working with Joe Vagnone and his team put all of that worry and stress to rest, they handled everything in a very professional and timely manner and made the process much easier. I would highly recommend them for any of your business needs.”

Joe Vagnone had this to say:  “It was indeed a pleasure working with both the sellers and buyer of this business.  We could sell 4 more of these businesses this year, as the industry is really hot.”  As indeed it is.  Vagnone went on to say:  “As pet ownership increases every year, as well as the average household spending for pet care and services, the industry is enjoying a great demand for these services. “  The business sold in just under two months from the day it was listed.

ENLIGN marketed the opportunity with the top online business listing services, including ENLIGN’s website, www.enlign.com before the sale.

ENLIGN, representing the seller, prepared a buyer’s information packet, provided a broker’s opinion of value, worked with the seller to determine an appropriate asking price, pre-qualified potential buyers, represented the seller in pre-offer discussions, assisted in the negotiation of the terms of the transaction, and worked with buyer’s and seller’s closing documents for client review and execution.

“I tell clients, ‘You’re not paying me just to find a willing buyer; you’re really paying me to get the deal done, this deal is a perfect example of that.” – Joe Vagnone
