Commuting home from work one evening in late 2000, Jacob D’Aniello heard a man singing praises about his incredible career scooping dog poop. He realized that this guy loved his job, earned a good living, worked his hours, said his clients loved him, and didn’t have to commute anymore. 

In 2004, the company established headquarters in Charlottesville, Virginia, and began franchising nationwide. Since then, DoodyCalls has grown to over 50 territories in 15 states and has been the subject of news stories in hundreds of publications, including two recognitions as the number-one pet waste removal franchise in the United States by Entrepreneur Magazine’s annual Franchise 500 list.
