Scoop Soldiers Maps Out More Franchise Growth to Meet Demand 

Scoop Soldiers Maps Out More Franchise Growth to Meet Demand 

Scoop Soldiers continues to capitalize on the dirty work of pet ownership, primely positioned to soar as a unique, low-cost, high-margin opportunity and fine-tuned franchise.

With a robust franchise development and support system in place, the proven Texas-based residential and commercial pet waste removal brand has its sights set on rapid growth, actively partnering with entrepreneurs to meet demand in communities across the country.

People spend a lot of money on their pets—nearly $100 billion in services across the board, and Scoop Soldiers tackles the messiest part. Business is booming for Scoop Soldiers, with 16 franchise territories and 13 corporate locations—and growing.

“Cleaning up after your dog is the worst part of being a pet owner, so if you can eliminate that for the consumer for less than $20 a week, it is an easy decision,” said Scott Oaks, vice president of franchise sales and development for Scoop Soldiers, founded in 2010 and franchising since 2019.

Scoop Soldiers’ fast path to owning a home-based franchise is all about flexibility. The business model can be operated with ease by a solo franchisee or an owner of multiple territories with technicians on board. Scoop Soldiers features:

  • Low operating costs

The total cost to invest in Scoop Soldiers ranges from $61,300 to $111,300 per territory.

  • Simple operations

Get it up and running quickly with a truck, essential equipment, and you – that’s it.

  • Tech-driven front-end support services for a competitive edge

Scoop Soldiers’ comprehensive technology platform covers customer acquisition and marketing support, automatic scheduling, and billing.

“Our business model allows you to quickly scale up to run multiple territories out of a single office,” Oaks said. “We handle all the client and customer inquiry calls at our command center. This eliminates some of the additional administrative overhead that franchisees have for their local operations and allows them to handle a much larger volume of business without the additional overhead.”

Before Oaks signed to head up development efforts in March 2021, the franchise veteran practiced his own due diligence. He liked what he saw.

“It was the little things: training manuals with diagrams and mapping routes that show you how to canvas a yard, so you don’t miss anything, online training to support employee interaction with customers, and tracking KPIs for this business,” Oaks said. “To go to this level of detail showed me that they have put the time in to have the right tools in place because they want their franchisees to succeed.”

Oaks, part of a seasoned executive team that includes company founders Josh Cahill and EJ McCoy, oversees Scoop Soldiers’ mission to expand as a national brand. Building on the momentum of adding 10 new franchise territories in 2021, Scoop Soldiers aims to award another 15 franchises in 2022.

Along with a traditional startup model, franchise owners can hit the ground running by purchasing a corporate-owned location. Enhanced territories, and the brand awareness and established customer base that comes with it, are available in Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Florida, Arizona, Colorado, and Nevada.

“The great thing about our co-founders is that they want to make sure we're bringing in the right people,” Oaks said. “It’s important when you’re a young franchise to partner with the right franchisees early on. They are going to be the backbone of your system as you continue to grow. For us, franchisees that understand the importance of customer service and that love animals are two important traits we are looking for.”
