Scoop Soldiers, the pet waste removal franchise which aims to help pet owners and their four-legged friends by taking on the dirty work of pet ownership, is on the cusp of major growth. The brand signed 10 new franchisees in 2021, more than doubling the number of franchises it started with at the beginning of the year. This growth comes as savvy investors continued to recognize the well-positioned opportunity to capitalize on a growing demand for residential and commercial waste removal services. With a proven business model, a low-cost investment and a high-margin opportunity, Scoop Soldiers has become a premier player in the growing “pooper scooper” services segment. Now, looking to the new year, the brand is gearing up for growth in markets across the country.

As many workers return to offices and readjust to pre-pandemic schedules, the demand for Scoop Soldiers’ pet waste removal services is reaching an all-time high. “People want their time back, and they don’t want to worry about menial tasks like poop scooping,” said Josh Cahill, CEO of Scoop Soldiers. “Our services allow them to spend time with their family and friends.”

Cahill says Scoop Soldiers gives entrepreneurs a prime opportunity to enter this booming segment with low operating costs, comprehensive support services and a simplified business model. Also, the brand offers franchisees the rare opportunity to purchase an existing corporate location, which provides access to an existing client base and instant revenue from day one.

For example, franchise owners Ron Battaglia, Renae Battaglia and John Amaroufi, who brought the brand to the Prosper, McKinney and Frisco, Texas communities just this past year, say they’ve already benefited from the level of support Scoop Soldiers offers to franchisees.

“They do a lot of the work for you,” Amaroufi said. “You pretty much just need to figure out how to deliver the services. They also offer two ways to go into the business — as an owner-operator business, or you can purchase a corporate-owned business. You can start small-scale or start large-scale.” 

Looking ahead to 2022, the Scoop Soldiers team aims to add another 15 to 20 franchise locations in strategic markets across the country, including Texas, Georgia, Florida, Oklahoma, Arizona, Colorado, North Carolina and Ohio.

“We’re looking for entrepreneurs who want to run a successful business and also have freedom to live their lives,” said Cahill. “The most rewarding thing is being able to put our franchisees into a place where they have a healthy work-life balance. My goal for the company is of course to reach our revenue goals and unit goals, but really what it all comes down to is providing a great opportunity for success for our franchisees. This year and beyond, our biggest priority is making our franchisees happy, helping them make money and providing them with support.”

The total cost to invest in Scoop Soldiers ranges from $43,800 to $104,050 per territory. To learn more about franchising with Scoop Soldiers, visit:
