Ok, I thought I have seen it all, but it is just amazing to read about an entrepreneur who made money — and a lot of money at that — from picking up dog poops! Not only is there business in picking up dog’s poop, but there is potentially good business in various parts of the country as the business is being opened as a franchise! It’s one thing to have a successful business, but another to have one whose success could potentially be replicated elsewhere!
PowerHomeBiz.com today posted a press release about Pet Butler, a business started by Matt “Red” Boswell of Texas. The release reads:
Between kids, working longer hours and two-income families, pet owners (who now number over 100 million in the U.S.) are too busy to stop and deal with one of the grossest and yet most important jobs around. His concept seems to be working. Boswell’s Pet Butler has acquired thousands of satisfied repeat clients who only pay an average of $10.00 per visit for Pet Butler to scoop their pet’s poop.
I am not a pet owner, mainly because I hate cleaning up animal’s poops. I love playing with cats and dogs, but definitely not part of that partnership. Hence, I just avoid pets altogether. I can definitely why this type of service could have a demand. And while Matt reaps the reward for seeing a great opportunity from this daily occurence, here I am thinking, “Why did I not think of this first???”
