DoodyCalls, a nationwide leader in pet waste removal services, is growing its footprint in the pooper scooper industry with the opening of an office on The Suncoast in Manatee County, Florida. DoodyCalls currently operates in over 57 territories, across 23 states, and has been named the #1 pet waste removal franchise in the United States by Entrepreneur Magazine’s annual Franchise 500 list.
Making business a family affair, Marla Moran and her children Colton and Kara wanted to create a family legacy and establish something for future generations. With a collective background in franchise development, hospitality, customer service, and lifelong dog owners the family set out to carve out a niche for themselves scooping poop. Laying the framework, owners Colton and his wife Kirsti are based in California while mother daughter duo Marla and Kara will be the boots on the ground in Florida.
“Our family is thrilled to be part of the DoodyCalls family and the Authority Brands team while helping give members of our community precious time with their families and pets,” said Kara Kelsey, chief operations officer of DoodyCalls on the Suncoast. “We have hearts to serve and a deep appreciation for our community so we cannot wait to help keep this beautiful place clean and healthy.”
A family of dog lovers, the Morans were drawn to the potential for success and capability to serve their community with DoodyCalls. Blending their background in customer service and business, the group plans to open two separate DoodyCalls franchise locations in 2022. The franchises offer the group an opportunity to give back to the community while building the family legacy they originally set out for.
“The Morans’ dedication to family and building a legacy through a joint business venture gives us great confidence in their franchise openings in Florida” said Jacob D’Aniello, COO and founder of DoodyCalls. “We are confident in their success and how well they will service their community.”
