Cousins ​​launches Pet Butler franchise in Livonia picking up dog poop

It’s a service that’s clearly in demand, Kashat said: they’ve seen business grow much faster in the last four months than they expected.  They’ll scoop several dozen yards a day, visiting a yard for about 10 minutes apiece. They’ll walk the perimeter of the yard, looking for any droppings and sweep them up. Most customers sign up with the service for weekly visits, a step the two say is critical to keeping a lawn healthy. “Our goal was to get a second truck for the year, and we’re at five trucks now,” Kashat said. “There’s a lot of residual income once we get all the trucks and accounts going.”

Today, Kashat spends several days a week heading across western Wayne County cleaning up customers yards through the Pet Butler franchise he and his cousin launched. It’s certainly a big change when it comes to going to work every day, but it’s one Kashat welcomed. “I was going to continue to do loans to make income until this business takes off,” Kashat said. “I figured I could take a couple days a week and take care of this. It’s become a full-time job.”

Instead of dress clothes, Kashat and his crews will head out to work in shorts and a vest, driving to homes in places like Livonia, Redford Township, Northville, Westland, Canton Township and elsewhere to provide their services to pet owners wanting to keep their yards clean of dog waste. Then the real estate market went bonkers with offers on homes skyrocketing and fierce competition. That rise in the business then had Kashat looking at investing in his side business. It’s a move, he said, that’s worked out well so far.

“They don’t want anybody just starting a franchise,”  Kashat said. “They want somebody heavy in the pet industry already.” More:Going to the dogs in Novi, South Lyon: Districts add canines to classrooms Despite the shift in the type of work, operating a Pet Butler franchise is a natural step for the two cousins: Shamou owns two Premier Pet Supply shops in Livonia and in Canton — so adding another business related to pets was a no-brainer, Kashat said. Having those connections, he said, helped them receive the franchise from the Illinois-based company.

Launching the poop-scoop business isn’t the first venture the two cousins have done. They said they also ran Jumbo Video in Westland years ago, as well as another small business selling items on eBay. Latest business venture
