Congratulations! You've overcome the "poop" stigma to take a serious look at a growing business opportunity in the pet franchise industry.
First, we will let you in on a secret - our business is not about dog poop! Yes, we remove what Rover leaves behind, but the real keys to our success are:
- Capturing market share in a high-demand sector.
- Providing excellent customer service to build and retain a loyal clientele.
- Managing operational efficiencies to drive profits.
- Enabling a truly green solution to pet waste management.
We hope to share the lesson of our success - the sooner you can see past the poop, the sooner you can envision the business opportunity with Doo Care!
Will I have to scoop the poop?
We are looking for business owners, not poop scoopers. As a Doo Care franchisee, you will spend your time building the business, not scooping the poop. We are seeking franchise owners who work on their business, not in their business. The majority of dog waste disposal businesses are small scale, independent "poop scoopers", with a modest portfolio of clients. In contrast, Doo Care has built a brand and business methodology that combines the power of marketing with efficient operating procedures to drive sales and control costs. Our objective is to capture market share and provide superior customer experience. Combine this with an aggressive focus on "green solutions", and Doo Care is well positioned as the pre-eminent brand for dog waste management services. You need a business model which is both replicable and scalable, and this is what the Doo Care model offers. We help you with the tools, resources and advice to grow your business beyond one truck. If you succeed in building your pet franchise to two, three or more trucks, you have the opportunity to reach significant economies of scale to drive more money to your bottom line.
A high growth sector
Our society's obsession with pets has created a highly lucrative pet franchise opportunity. Combine this with our dislike of what our furry friends leave behind, and you have a superb business in pet waste disposal. The statistics are staggering. Over the last decade, total U.S. pet industry expenditures have nearly doubled, from $21 billion in 1996 to $38.5 billion in 2006. According to a 2007-2008 study, 63% of American homes have pets, which translates into more than 71 million households! Of these, nearly 45 million households have dogs.
The opportunity goes far beyond residential services. Homeowners' associations, apartment complexes and city parks are among the growing number of organizations that require a professional solution to the problem of dog waste.
