Charlie Hopkins and his business partners traveled the country, going to trade shows and visiting dog-sitting facilities in an attempt to put together the perfect business model for a downtown Birmingham canine daycare.
The result is Just Happy Hounds, a daycare for man’s best friend that will be opening next week at 2222 5th Ave. S. in Midtown. Rick Vanchina of Southpace Properties handled the lease.
The building was formerly Confederate Motorcycles and is located across the street from WorkPlay.
“This is going to be such a populated area, and it’s going to be so close to so many things,” Hopkins, the CEO of Just Happy Hounds, said.
