The new location provides dog waste removal services to residents and communities of all sizes.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — DoodyCalls, a nationwide leader in pet waste removal services, is growing its footprint in the pooper scooper industry with the opening of an office in Knoxville, Tennessee. DoodyCalls currently cleans up in over 80 territories across 25 states and has been named the number-one pet waste removal franchise in the United States by Entrepreneur Magazine’s annual Franchise 500 list.
A longtime Tennessee resident and a lifelong lover of canines, Tony DaSilveira was looking for an opportunity to create his own niche business and expand upon his customer service skills. After years in the restaurant industry and decades in minor league baseball operations, DaSilveira decided to embark on a franchising journey with DoodyCalls.
“Franchising with DoodyCalls allows me to lean into my passion for people and their pets while creating a business of my own with scalable growth and a true chance to expand,” said Tony DaSilveira owner and operator of DoodyCalls of East Tennessee. “I’m looking forward to creating even deeper ties in my community and offering my neighbors a service they will appreciate.”
DaSilveira is looking forward to presenting a much needed and helpful service to his community and has his eye on expansion in the coming years. He plans to give back to his community in the future and give every neighbor with a pooch what they want most: more precious time with their pet.
“We at DoodyCalls are excited to expand our franchise locations into Tennessee and welcome a new team into our family,” said Larry Amos, Vice President of Operations with DoodyCalls. “We are looking forward to seeing their business flourish in their community and support their team as they grow over the years.”
The East Tennessee DoodyCalls franchise will service the following areas: Bybee, Cosby, Dandridge, Del Rio, Gatlinburg, Hartford, Knoxville, Kodak, Maryville, Newport, Parrottsville, Pigeon Forge, Rockford, Sevierville, Seymour, Strawberry Plains, and White Pine, with additional areas looking to be added in the near future.
