A VERY LOW COST OF ENTRY and return of your initial
investment is projected well within your first year of being in business.
Very few start-ups could make the same statement. One advantage of
being a franchisee is the ability to start this as a side business, while not
quitting your day job until your customer base matures. We can speak from
experience because thats how we started this business! If you are in a
heavily populated city where you think POOP 911 pooper scooper service
would be a great addition to your community services lets get started...
45% of all US households have more than one dog.
In 2004 an estimated $34.4 Billion was spent in the US on pet expenditures. 2005
is estimated to be over $35.5 Billion

As a company, we have developed systems and processes to be able to capture and harness this demand into a very profitable opportunity. Although scooping poop is something just about anyone with a strong stomach can do, running a company that
provides sophisticated system and process expertise in billing, customer
scheduling, routing and call center services is nothing to sniff about.

US spending on pets and pet services has grown each year for the past 10 years

Our success model was developed from not only overwhelming demand for this new service but with the experience of our
company officers. That experience begins with the companys CEO that
has 10 years experience working in 3 of the 4 largest consulting firms in
the world. During that period he worked for more than 2 dozen Fortune
500 companies, implementing computer systems to automate daily
operational and reporting functions for each of these companies. Poop
911 National Operations Manager has more than 20 years in customer
relationship management. Our Director of Sales and Marketing designed
graphic branding, media strategies, and advertising on the internet for
companies such as Land Rover, On the Border, the Airforce, Wal-Mart and
Penzoil prior to stepping aboard. This collective team has created a recipe
for success that our rapidly growing customer base speaks volumes to.

We started this business ourselves
to have a better quality of life at
home with our family and friends. Although all of the vast experience our team has come from working
in corporate America, we ultimately wanted to get back to a better
quality of life as far as the time we spent at home with our family
and friends. Our franchisees maintain the ability to work from a
home office and have the freedom to manage thier time as they see
fit. This is made possible with centrally operated and maintained
tools like our our call center which is always answering new customer
calls and setting up service for your franchisee branch 24/7!

The answer is a resounding YES! We started Poop 911 doing just that. We require that you are able to dedicate at least 20 hours a
week for your first 6 months and after that time be able to either quit
your day job or hire a full time local operations manager to manage
the business activities for you. We will not only provide you with the
personal training in Poop 911 proven systems and processes but
also with how to hire the right people for your investment. The way
we look at it is that you are investing in the reputation of the Poop
911 name and we want to make sure that it continues to represent
quality and convenience at an affordable cost to your customer base.
With the convenient schedulingI was able to keep my day job while my customer base grew.- Jory - Denver Franchisee - 6 -
