I know this kind of business seems to pop up more and more, but I like passing on this information as I see it. Who knows when you will be looking for another side business to start and may consider this.

Are you seeing more and more of these companies in your area?

A million-dollar business - Barnhart is starting a franchise of Palmyra, Va.-based Doody Calls, part of a rapidly growing niche in the pet-care industry focused on pet-waste pickup.

Doody Calls launched in 2000 with two University of Virginia graduates who picked up dog waste on weekends. Now it has more than $1 million in annual revenue and roughly 1,500 clients in seven states.

Until very recently, poop-scooping was the exclusive domain of small, locally based businesses, if service was offered in an area at all. But Doody Calls and Frisco, Tex.-based Pet Butler introduced the franchise concept to the industry in 2004.
