January 09, 2008 // Franchising.com // - CINCINNATI, – Pet owners in greater Cincinnati 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. Pet Butler, the nation's leading pet waste cleanup service, has launched two new franchises in the area. One serves Warren County, as well as Loveland and West Chester, and the other serves three counties in Indiana and Kentucky.
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.
Kathleen Simpson opened the franchise serving Warren County, Loveland, and West Chester. The husband-wife team of Kevin and Nancy Kendall opened a franchise, based in Lawrenceburg, Indiana, serving Dearborn County in Indiana and Boone and Kenton counties in Kentucky. Both franchises offer weekly and twice-weekly pickup service.
"The families in greater Cincinnati are very busy," said Kathleen Simpson. "When people get home, they don't want to spend their free time picking up dog doo."
Kevin Kendall added, "Pet Butler takes the dirty work out of pet ownership, so our customers have more time to enjoy their family and pets, rather than worrying about the mess."
Kevin Kendall has worked in the airline industry for the last 28 years and Nancy has been a legal assistant for 17 years. "Pet Butler is a wonderful opportunity for us to work alongside each other and be 'entre-manures,'" said Nancy. The Kendalls are human companions to two cats and one goldfish.
Kathleen Simpson, member of the American Kennel Club and human companion to Gromit, a Norwich Terrier, knows just how important it is to keep a yard poop-free. "Besides being a nuisance, pet waste contains harmful bacteria that can cause people and their pets to become very ill," said Kathleen. "As we work to cleanse the community of dog poop, we also intend to educate the public about the environmental concerns associated with it."
Matt "Red" Boswell, CEO (Chief Excrement Officer) of Pet Butler, is excited to have the Kendalls and Simpsons join the Pet Butler family, "We are fortunate to have such great husband and wife franchise partners. I know both couples will help make the greater Cincinnati and northern Kentucky area 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. The company currently has operations in New Whiteland and Indianapolis, Indiana; Lexington, Kentucky; Dayton, Toledo and Columbus, Ohio, in addition to franchises in 26 other states.
