Riding Shotgun videos will feature Detroit-area PRO Gretchen Menard

A portable sanitation reality video series, Riding Shotgun with Gretchen Menard, debuted recently right here at the PRO website. The series will follow the Detroit-area restroom contractor as she serves special events and a new high-profile assignment providing restroom trailers for the ABC-TV crime drama Detroit 1-8-7, which films on location in the Motor City.

Menard, owner of Poopy’s Potties in Holly, Mich., is using compact high definition (or HD) digital video cameras to provide an up-close day-in-the-life glimpse of the challenges she faces every day. You will be able to see Menard’s service techniques on location. In new installments on the PRO website throughout the year, you’ll hear her commentary on service, equipment and disposal issues.

Menard has positioned herself as a boutique supplier of upscale single restroom units and small restroom trailers. Since Michigan started offering tax incentives to television and film production companies in 2008, Menard has gone after related portable sanitation opportunities. She landed a job providing trailers for the Transformers 3 movie set. Most recently she’s had a five-day-a-week job shadowing the production company for the crime drama.
