Pet Butler Welcomes Newest Franchise Owner Mary Lester

Mary Lester

Pet Butler is proud to announce its newest franchise owner, Mary Lester of Tallahassee, FL.

Lester was employed with the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity and has over 15 years of experience within state government. She’s also a retired first sergeant, having spent 32 years in the Army National Guard and serving a combat tour in Afghanistan. She’s retired from the federal government as a Public Affairs Specialist, where she was the Social Media Manager and Editor for the Missouri National Guard. Although Lester has lived and worked all over the world, she has resided in her hometown of Tallahassee, Florida since 2017.

Serving in the military made it tough to ever own a pet, but 10 years ago she was finally able to change that when she got her dog, Roxy. Lester’s idea to join Pet Butler wasn’t just rooted in her love for animals – but from her niece who was a new customer of a pet waste removal business.

“I did my research and I reached out to numerous pet waste removal franchises. From there, I talked to and met with each franchise. After talking with all the different franchises, the open communication with Pet Butler was by far the best experience I had. They made it so easy for me to ask questions and to get answers,” explained Lester.

Lester was impressed by the open communication with the Pet Butler Support Center when she joined the franchise. She’s most excited to bring pet waste removal services to her community and getting a quality work/life balance by working in the pet industry and doing something she loves.

“We are excited to have Mary expand into the Tallahassee market and we look forward to helping them achieve their goals and dreams,” said James Young, president of Pet Butler.
