Pet Butler - Ridding the Philadelphia Area of Dog Waste, One Pile at a Time
December 20, 2007 // Franchising.com // - ELKINS PARK, Pennsylvania – Pet owners in Eastern Montgomery County who are weary of picking up what their pets leave behind now have an affordable and environmentally friendly service to take care of the dirty work.
Adam Hoffman, a longtime Montgomery County resident, has stepped up to keep local yards and public spaces clean of dog waste. Hoffman has opened the first Philadelphia-area franchise of Pet Butler, the nation's leading pet waste cleanup service. It is the company's second franchise in Pennsylvania and 81st nationwide.
Texas-based Pet Butler provides professional pet waste cleanup and removal services for individual homeowners and their pets, as well as for multi-family communities and parks. The company proudly bills itself as "#1 in the '#2' business."
Pet Butler charges a small per-visit fee to collect dog and cat waste, carry it away, and dispose of it properly. Whether in yards or in public spaces, accumulated domestic animal waste can ruin lawns and present a significant source of water pollution.
Hoffman's Pet Butler operation offers weekly and twice-weekly pickup service to all of Eastern Montgomery County including the Main Line.
"This area is booming with families," Hoffman said of his Eastern Montgomery County service area. "They love their pets, but don't always have the time to properly clean their yards. That's why Pet Butler is such a great service. My clients can enjoy time with their pets and family, while I pick up what their pooches leave behind."
Hoffman, who has previously worked in fields such as healthcare and commercial photography, said he looks forward to building his new business. "Pet Butler offers me a wonderful opportunity to do something different and to be an 'entre-manure," said Hoffman. "I get to work outside with pets and help families live a healthier life. Plus, I can have a sense of humor about my job. It's not every day you meet a professional pooper scooper. I tell people I just 'do the doo.'"
Hoffman, the human companion to Chopper, a one-year-old English Bulldog, knows how important it is to keep a yard poop-free. "People don't realize how harmful pet waste can be. I intend to help raise awareness of the negative environmental effects of dog waste and contribute to making Philadelphia a cleaner place to live."
Matt "Red" Boswell, CEO (Chief Excrement Officer) of Pet Butler, is excited to have Hoffman as part of the Pet Butler family, "Adam Hoffman is very enthusiastic about being a Pet Butler, and about making his part of Philadelphia look and smell even better."
Pet Butler is leading the growth in the professional poop scooping market. With more than 80 franchises across the U.S. In Pennsylvania, Pet Butler also has a franchise operation in Allentown.
