That’s because the one I used to predict the non-revenue producing opportunities in dog poop removal franchises is obviously defective.
Now, I would rather have someone I know in the business of keeping poop-infested yards clean, as opposed to owning a pet-related retail franchise that purportedly does this. Wouldn’t you?
I remember the call I received about two years ago from an exec from one of the “dog waste management” franchises, asking me if I was interested in finding folks who may be interested in his fine opportunity. At the time, I said no. I remember telling him that I just couldn’t see myself (I’m a visual person) presenting his concept to a franchise candidate with a straight face. Next.
Maybe I should have found a way to do it.
The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Doody Calls just surpassed $3.5 million in revenue last year, with their 35 franchise locations. That’s not to crappy shabby.
It gets even better.
Doody Calls is expanding their poopy empire once again, by entering another nasty space. Are you ready?
That’s right; for all of you who can’t bend over at a 60% angle with your cute little cat litter scooper every few days, there’s a new service being started by this franchise. Read about it over at WSJ.com, and then stop back, please.
No predictions from me, yet.
Do you happen to know where I can get a brand new crystal ball?
