Pet Butler Continues Growth With Signing Of Navy Vet To Double Territory Deal

November 02, 2022 // Franchising.com // RALEIGH, NC - It’s never too late to pursue your dreams. Just ask 55-year-old Michael Kidd, a Navy veteran who recently retired after a 30-year career with the federal government. He’s going to earn a bachelor’s degree in December, and just fulfilled a lifelong dream of becoming a small-business owner. He and his wife, Michelle, bought a double territory from Pet Butler, which provides dog poop-scooping services and pet-waste removal to homes and multi-family communities for thousands of clients across North America. Their Pet Butler will serve customers in Cary, Apex, Holly Springs, Fuquay, Varina, Willow Springs, New Hill, and Morrisville North Carolina.

Having worked three decades for the federal government, Michael spent the past 16 years as a manager responsible for a team of 10 officers. He will graduate from Liberty University at year’s end with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. “I believe my management experience should benefit me while operating Pet Butler. And I also served four years in the U.S. Navy, which taught me responsibility at an early age,” Kidd said. “Our whole family has a real love for animals, and my wife and all three of my children will definitely be involved in the business. Business ownership and pets--this is the best of both worlds for me and my family.”

The timing really could not be any better for the Kidd’s to join Pet Butler. According to a recent study by Morgan Stanley, the $100 billion pet industry is poised to nearly triple to $275 billion by 2030 thanks to favorable demographics and surging increases in new pet owners and spending. What’s more, 65 percent of 18- to 34-year-olds say they plan to acquire or add a pet in the next five years, helping drive what’s expected to be a 14 percent increase in pet ownership by 2030.

“I am excited about Pet Butler’s unique back-office support and marketing programs, and their expansion into other services such as pet sitting, dog walking, and pet shuttling,” Kidd said. “Pet ownership, especially dogs, is high right now and there are no signs of it slowing down. With everyone having busy lives, there will always be a need for our services.”
