ATLANTA, GEORGIA, USA, July 5, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Like many children, Courtney Elliott-Harrison loved animals, having everything from fish and hamsters to horses when she was young. Unlike many children, however, she took her passion to a level that most her age would never have contemplated. When Courtney was in college in Mississippi, she began writing to state congressmen and even visited the state capitol to make a presentation for tougher sterilization and incapacitation laws in the state. State. She was also actively involved in rescue organizations, where she learned even more about humane societies and animal legislation.
We had a lot of homeless animals on the streets, and it bothered me so much when I was a kid,” Courtney recalled. “My parents took me by car to meet adults who were very involved in animal welfare issues. I even tried to start a “coalition” called the Newton County Paw Protectors. I thought I was a big thing!”
Now 27 and a resident of Smyrna, Courtney is still as passionate about animals as she continues to do what others her age haven’t. In May, she became what she believes to be the youngest franchisee of Pet Butler, which provides dog poop and pet waste removal services to homes and multi-family communities for thousands of customers. in North America and the Atlanta area. Elliott-Harrison territory includes Smyrna and southern Marietta.
Pet Butler provided the perfect opportunity to turn Courtney’s passion into a livelihood. Courtney still has pets — she and his wife have two rescue dogs, Malcolm and Chopin, and a cat named Kahlo. Likewise, Pet Butler has a strong social mission to support animal rescues, shelters, and humane societies. “It was important to me to find a company that had as much passion for animals as I do and that emphasizes active involvement in people’s communities,” Courtney said. “I also always knew I would have my own business. I’ve been adamant about that all my life, so it’s amazing that it came to fruition at that age.
The timing couldn’t be better for Courtney to join the Pet Butler Network. According to a recent Morgan Stanley study, the $100 billion pet industry is poised to triple to $275 billion by 2030 thanks to favorable demographics and a increasing number of new pet owners and spending. Additionally, 65% of 18-34 year olds say they plan to acquire or add a pet in the next five years, contributing to what is expected to be a 14% increase in ownership pets by 2030.
Prior to joining Pet Butler, Courtney worked in the retail industry. But then the pandemic hit and Courtney fell seriously ill after contracting COVID-19, forcing her to take a three-month furlough. The whole experience has left her physically and mentally drained, leading her to seek a new chapter in her life as part of the Great Resignation at the end of 2021.
“I knew early on when COVID started that I couldn’t continue in my previous field with the way things had become,” Courtney said. “One, the emotional toll it took and, two, the physical toll. I’ve always been ridiculously independent and free-spirited, so for me, Corporate America was never going to be right for me. I believe that “you have to work to live, not the other way around. And when I tried to return to work after catching COVID, I couldn’t work at the same capacity I had been. It took seven months to get my health back in order. I guess before I got COVID I had started to lose sight of what a work/life balance is and just wasn’t happy. After I got COVID , I was determined to find myself in a place where I lived as I wanted and enjoyed my life because it was interrupted so quickly for seven months.
Courtney considered working for an existing pet care business, but didn’t want to give up on her dream of becoming a business owner. She realized a franchise system would provide the structure and guidance she wanted when her father discovered Pet Butler while researching potential franchises to join. And in May, his dream finally came true.
While you might think that the economic impact of the pet poop industry is just a drop in the ocean (sorry), that’s not the case.
According to the latest figures from market research publisher Packaged Facts, retail sales of pet cleaning products are expected to reach $4 billion in the United States. And it’s no surprise that pet owners are more than willing to spend — and spend a lot — on their furry friends. . With the continued growth in the number of pet owners and trends in pet sitting (see new Washington Post article here), Pet Butler is well positioned to be the go-to service provider for all needs. pets.
“The marketing done on behalf of your business and the level of detail and involvement in their efforts – that level of support doesn’t exist with other franchises,” Courtney said of Pet Butler. “Everyone on the team is so amazing and capable. Their passion for what they do is inspiring.
