iTrip Vacations® Park City Creates Successful Lifestyle Business
After only two months of researching iTrip Vacations®, John and Dori Kennedy knew a vacation rental management franchise was the right fit for them. Since 2011, the Kennedys – owners of iTrip Vacations® Park City – have enjoyed steady growth, success and the freedom of owning a lifestyle business.
Meet iTrip Vacations® Park City Owners and Managers
“I had a career in the office products industry and semi-retired in 2007, when the company I worked for was purchased by Staples,” John Kennedy says. “I considered going back to a corporate sales leadership role but wanted a new challenge. Throughout my work history, I had built successful businesses for other companies and decided it would be interesting to start my own thing.”
It was then iTrip Vacations® Park City was born. The Utah vacation rental management company provides owners and guests high-quality customer service and support, 24-hours a day, all from a locals who live in and know the area best.
“The most important element of our company is our team,” he says. “We began as a family operation with my wife and two daughters. Now, we have added staff members who share our passion for going beyond what is expected by guests and owners.”
That passion sets iTrip Vacations® Park City apart from competing property management companies. The full-service program also offers free light maintenance, worldwide exposure through listing sites, digital marketing, no usage restrictions and more.

“We chose iTrip first, and Park City was a natural location,” Dori Kennedy says. “We live in Sandy, Utah, which is about 30 miles from the market. We love Park City because of everything it has to offer.”
Park City attracts travelers with its world-class ski resorts and a variety of mountain and outdoor activities in the summer. Main Street also features a selection of boutique shops and restaurants.

It is satisfying to offer a service that makes a difference.”
