owners in America love their furry friends so much that they spend a whopping
$40 billion a year on them! It's that love that's driving one of the fastest
growing markets in the U.S. and in the world. Statistics show that 40% of all
American households have at least one dog. The percentage goes up to over 60%
for households with annual incomes of over $55K. That's a lot of dogs (about
63 million, the last time we counted). And a lot of dogs produce a lot of pet
Those 63 million mutts, hounds, pooches and purebreds all have something "common"
in common - they all receive AND answer nature's call, each and every day. If
you can imagine 63 million dogs depositing a parcel (sometimes two) everyday,
you can imagine what demand there is for DoodyCall's pet waste removal services.
Pet owners love their pets. In their precious free time, they want to play and
cuddle their dogs - not clean up after them. That's why they're more than thrilled
to hand that task over to professionals like DoodyCalls.
want their yards to be safe, clean places to relax and have fun in with their
families and friends. Unfortunately, so does Rover... and when you consider
that he's got a healthy appetite, you know what goes in must come out! And ALL
dog (and pet) owners know that what gets cleaned up today only reappears again
tomorrow. Simple biology makes pet waste removal the most reliably recurring
franchise opportunity available today. That's why DoodyCalls' client retention
rates are extremely high for weekly, bi-weekly and monthly cleanings. That's
not all - regular cleanings usually lead to additional business in deck deodorizing,
lawn brown-spot treatment and kitty litter services. DoodyCalls franchise owners
know that they're building a strong, predictable and profitable business. Every
new client eventually adds to their customer base and a healthy customer base
means opportunity for revenue streams to grow.
DoodyCalls isn't just a business about removing pet-poop. We're a business
with a vision. We pioneered this business in 2000, providing pet waste removal
services to residential yards, apartment communities and home owner associations.
Today, we are a nationally recognized - and respected - brand with a look that's
as colorful and friendly as the staff providing its services. We strive to ALWAYS
be the best by working with the best people. We believe that integrity should
never be sacrificed at the expense of growth. We're steadily building a world
class brand that's poised for global expansion. To help us reach our goal, we're
looking for great franchise candidates to bring into our system to train and
coach them to reach their fullest potential. DoodyCalls is a simple business
backed by very sophisticated systems.
started DoodyCalls for a lot of reasons. One was the desire to work outside.
Another was stress. We didn't want any! In pet waste removal, we found what
we were looking for. This is a business with very few moving parts. It can be
started from home, with very little in upfront costs. We love the simple concept
of helping people by picking up what their dogs leave behind. And we do it better
than anybody else.

customers so that they can learn how to continuously improve. Our feedback
system allows franchise owners to send their clients a comprehensive satisfaction

online, or exported into other applications.
