February 29, 2008 // Franchising.com // - Blauvelt, New York –Marie Colantuoni and Georgeann Caperna of Blauvelt have opened the first area office of Pet Butler, the nation's leading pet waste cleanup service. It is the company's first franchise in New York.
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," and recently scooped its 40 millionth pile of poop.
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.
This new Pet Butler operation will offer pickup services to Blauvelt, Rockland County, and northern Bergen County.
For Marie and Georgeann, the Pet Butler franchise represents an opportunity to merge their individual talents and experiences. Life-long Rockland County resident Marie formerly ran a group home for developmentally disabled adults, while Georgeann is a retired New York City police officer.
"We are both animal lovers, and this new franchise gives us the opportunity to work for ourselves. Poop scooping just felt right and Pet Butler provides so much support – it was a no brainer!" said Georgeann.
"The Blauvelt area is full of commuters that just don't have time to scoop poop," Marie added. "We're here to help families spend more time together and less time in their back yards scooping poop."
Pet Butler is leading the growth in the professional poop scooping market, with 90 franchises across the U.S. Matt "Red" Boswell, CEO (Chief Excrement Officer) of Pet Butler, noted that the company is now the largest poop scooping company in the U.S.
