Jackie Bondanza Of Hounds Town USA Joins The OAAT Family!
The OAAT Family Continues to Grow!
Jackie is the President of Hounds Town, Inc., a full-service pet care franchise system with over 50 locations in 10 states. In her role today, she focuses on growing the brand nationally, overseeing system operations, leading the corporate team, and managing two corporate stores. Additionally, Jackie has a master’s degree in Journalism and is the author of many books on real estate, green living, and Home Cooking for Your Dog, which has sold more than 25,000 copies. She has also helped lead and develop programs for Hounds Town Charities-the philanthropic entity of Hounds Town, Inc.-such as the Handcuffs to Heeling program rolled out with local correctional facilities and the Brookhaven Animal Shelter in 2018.
Jackie has been a supporter of OAAT for the past two years as a donor, corporate sponsor, and volunteer. She has had the opportunity of meeting multiple OAAT kids and has always looked for more ways to get involved with the organization. When a board seat became available at the beginning of 2021, the OAAT team knew exactly who to call! Jackie accepted the position with excitement and now also sits as Campaign One At A Time’s Treasurer.
“I believe in the cause, first and foremost. I believe I can add perspective, particularly on strategies to grow a small business/organization with limited resources as that is my role in my current professional position. I’m familiar with creating marketing initiatives and rolling out and implementing programs and policies for customers, staff, and franchisees, and assessing the success of those initiatives/how they land with each group. I also believe I can add perspective from an “emerging” franchisor’s perspective on working through the challenges of scaling.”
Campaign One At A Time has successfully completed their 3rd child campaign of the year, and with the help of Jackie, look forward to helping more kids than ever in 2021! Be sure to keep in touch with Campaign One At A Time’s impact by tuning in on Instagram and/or Facebook.
