Founded and operated by dog owners, Uptown Pup utilizes the latest research in canine behavior to develop ideal daycare environments for dogs. The Central Indiana SBDC assisted Uptown Pup with market and industry research as well as helping develop a business plan, expand networking opportunities and prepare a loan package. After acquiring a sizeable loan, Uptown Pup renovated and launched a new building that helped increase traffic in a moderate census tract, which in turn benefited other retail service businesses in close proximity to their location. Since opening, Uptown Pup’s owners continue to give back to the community and have since helped three local entrepreneurs by providing expertise and resources.
