With the awarding of its first Connecticut franchise to Bill, Cris Ann and Shannon Mulreed, BLACK DAWG SEALCOAT of Fairfield County, BLACK DAWG will have reinforcements in its efforts to show another part of New England how a superior asphalt maintenance company operates.

"What makes BLACK DAWG SEALCOAT different is that we truly believe in earning the trust of our customers. We do that with first-rate customer service (real people answer the phone) and state-of-the-art sealcoating technologies and we put that philosophy to work every single day," said Jack Child, founder and owner of BLACK DAWG Franchise Group LLC. "We’re positively thrilled to have the Mulreeds in the BLACK DAWG family to bring that level of quality and service to Fairfield County, particularly as our initial entry into Connecticut."

BLACK DAWG franchises use environmentally friendlier, non-toxic and non-tracking sealing material, which leaves very little odor, to restore driveways to their original attractive look. Besides a better appearance, the sealant employed by BLACK DAWG slows oxidation and other damaging effects of the sun and ultraviolet rays while creating a protective barrier against gas, oil and chemicals. Most importantly, it protects the driveway against moisture and water penetration – the driveway’s worst enemy.

BLACK DAWG SEALCOAT also offers hot rubber crack sealing services as well as line striping and complete pavement marking services for commercial parking lots. With its initial entry into Connecticut, BLACK DAWG’s service area will include the communities of Bethel, Bridgeport, Brookfield, Danbury, Darien, Easton, Fairfield, Greenwich, Monroe, New Canaan, New Fairfield, Newtown, Norwalk, Shelton, Sherman, Stamford, Stratford, Redding, Ridgefield, Trumbull, Weston, Westport and Wilton.

"We sold our refuse collection business in 2006 and we spent the next several months after that shopping for franchise opportunities, looking at everything from car washes to Dairy Queen to mini-marts," said Cris Ann Mulreed, who along with husband, Bill, and son, Shannon, will run BLACK DAWG SEALCOAT of Fairfield County. "BLACK DAWG’s presentation and packaging sold us. BLACK DAWG offers a seasonal business for which there is a legitimate need, with minimal franchise fees, reasonable overhead, a support system and business model in place that gives you a tangible road map for success. Add to that the fact that we already had a black lab, Dibble, and the decision to start a BLACK DAWG franchise here in Fairfield County was easy."

BLACK DAWG SEALCOAT’s other New England franchises provide service to the New Hampshire communities of Atkinson, Bedford, Derry, Exeter, Hampstead, Hampton, Hollis, Hudson, Litchfield, Londonderry, Manchester, Merrimack, Nashua, Pelham, Portsmouth, Salem, Stratham and Windham as well as the Massachusetts towns of Lawrence, Methuen, North Andover and Andover.

BLACK DAWG SEALCOAT is a member of the Better Business Bureau, the National Pavement Contractor’s Association and several local chambers of commerce and actively supports local and national non-profit organizations, including the PLUS Company, Fisher House for Families of Disabled Veterans and the Red Cross. The new owners of BLACK DAWG of Fairfield County already support the Special Olympics and Cancer Research and have sponsored Little League and Babe Ruth baseball programs in the Wilton area for more than 25 years. In addition, Cris Ann Mulreed has been actively involved with local Women’s Abuse Centers.
