Scoop Soldiers Set for Supercharged Franchise Expansion
Are you an aspiring dog-loving entrepreneur ready to take advantage of a unique opportunity in the booming pet services industry? Scoop Soldiers delivers as a wise investment and franchisee-focused brand with staying power.
As the top dog in the high-demand “pooper scooper” services segment, Scoop Soldiers doesn’t mess around. The mission-driven waste removal services company, founded in 2010, takes the dirty work out of pet care, saving dog owners valuable time and providing premier services for residential and pet-friendly commercial clients, wherever they are – including homes, apartment complexes, doggy day-cares, hotels and more.
Talk about opportunity. At last count, pet services was a $9.7 billion industry. Roughly 70% of U.S. households—or 90.5 million homes—owned at least one pet, spending approximately $1 billion annually on pet convenience services alone. The low-cost, high-profit service brand is a perfect franchise fit with year-round recurring revenue and first-class support.
“Becoming a Scoop Soldiers franchise owner has changed my life,” says franchisee Ryan McCoy, owner of territories in Dallas and the surrounding area. “It’s given me the ownership of a business, the freedom to run that business, and more freedom and time to do what I want to do.”
Franchisees may be their own boss, but they’re not alone. Entrepreneurs can count a simplified system backed by expert support, training, and coaching every step of the way.
Franchise owner Heather Philips knows first-hand the power of the brand, initially joining the corporate team at Scoop Soldiers, which launched franchising in 2019. When Philips watched the business of pioneering franchisees take off, she was ready to take the leap into ownership.
“There was a lot of feedback with the corporate team on the steps I needed to take to make sure launch date went off without a hitch—and it did,” says Philips, who points to the family-like culture as critical to the brand’s high-value proposition.
Scoop Soldiers supercharges the ownership experience with turnkey business operations, including branded trucks, essential equipment, and a comprehensive technology platform that handles customer acquisition, automatic scheduling, and billing to manage every aspect of the business, including website management of paid and organic local marketing.
It all adds up to a fast start to franchise success.
“After we signed, we were up and running between 30 to 60 days—scooping and collecting money,” says Ron Battaglia, a Scoop Soldiers multi-unit in North Texas.
Scoop Soldiers’ CEO Josh Cahill says the business model is designed to allow franchise partners to focus on their business with ease.
“We’ve taken the responsibilities for things that otherwise they would have to hire one or two people to do in an office setting, so they can focus on managing their team members, making sure the work in the field is going well, and spending time in their local community,” adds Cahill.
With a proven business model and fine-tune franchise blueprint in place, Scoop Soldiers is ready to soar to new heights with aggressive nationwide growth. With 10 territories added in 2021, the Scoop Soldiers leadership team aims to have 15 additional territories in 2022. The brand seeks to expand with dog-loving franchise partners in growing markets across the country, including Texas, Georgia, Florida, Oklahoma, Arizona, Colorado, North Carolina, and Ohio.
