A Texas Tech student has started a business that seems to be scooping in the dough. Well, technically, it's not dough that they're scooping.
Twenty-one-year-old Brook Lundgren, originally from Midland, is a student at the Rawls College of Business at Texas Tech and the owner of Brooks Pet Clean-Up. In an interview with KFYO News, Lundgren says he got the idea to start his business during the Covid-19 lockdown while stuck at home in Midland. He started browsing through social media where he noticed a need for someone to clean up after pets. The business of cleaning up poop allowed Lundgren to be able to observe the CDC's recommended 6-foot distance protocols while still maintaining a great relationship with clients.
Brooks Pet Clean-Up doesn't just offer dog poop scooping, but also cat litter clean-out, dog sitting, yard sanitizing and deodorizing. The dog sitting doesn't just mean dogs. Lundgren told us that it's an overall pet sitting where someone will come over twice a day to feed and play with your pet while you're away along with any instructions that are left for them to follow. That means feeding your chickens, horses, goats, goldfish, and even Venus flytraps. Just don't expect play time to go over so well with that carnivorous plant.
Brooks Pet Clean-Up also sanitizes and deodorizes yards to help avoid diseases like parvo from spreading. Their sanitizing spray reportedly kills parvo, which is a very dangerous virus for dogs.
There are currently 28 Brooks Pet Clean-Up locations across the United States, from California, Florida and even Wyoming. Those locations are just the beginning. Lundgren plans to open more locations all while earning his degree.
Brooks Pet Clean-Up is available everyday from 8 a.m. - 6 p.m. and can be contacted via their official website.
