Poolwerx Makes a Splash in California; Eyes Further National Expansion
Nation’s Leading Pool Service Franchise Partners with California Independent Retailer
July 02, 2018 // Franchising.com // Farmers Branch, TEXAS - The pool service industry is seeing the first hand effects of more people investing in their homes, and have seen an annual six percent rise in revenue. One of the leaders in the space experiencing this growth is Poolwerx, a leading pool service franchise with over 25 years of experience in the pool and spa industry. Among its recent growth is the partnership with Redlands Pool & Spa Center in California.
The former owners of Redlands Pool & Spa Center and newest Poolwerx franchise owners are husband and wife duo Sharon and Cal Boothby. The Boothby’s started in the pool service industry in 1982, inspired by turning people’s backyards into miniature paradises and having fun spots to create memories with the whole family. When Sharon and Cal met the Poolwerx team, they knew it was the perfect opportunity for them to join the Poolwerx brand to gain strong support from the corporate team for them and their employees. This partnership will add one additional retail location and 12 trucks to the Poolwerx fleet.
“Our recent partnership in California further validates the strong Poolwerx business model and its appeal to interested franchise owners and independent pool service operators,” said John O’Brien, CEO and founder of Poolwerx. “Pool maintenance is something that’s required year-round, and it is our mission to make sure consumers know the importance of creating safe pools for their family and friends nationwide.”
Poolwerx was founded by entrepreneur John O’Brien in Australia in 1992, and has developed into a leading international franchise brand with locations in Australia and New Zealand and began developing in the United States Sunbelt region in 2015. The company, specializing in creating and maintaining healthy pools for residential and commercial customers, now has 66 locations across seven states. In just its third year in the U.S., Poolwerx was named No. 183 on Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500® list and No. 39 in the Top Franchises under $100K.
In addition to the newest franchise owners in Redlands, Poolwerx plans to grow by 20 stores and 85 mobile units by the end of this year, with a goal of having 300 stores and 900 mobile units open in the United States by 2023. To reach these goals, Poolwerx is continuing to seek qualified franchise partners in Texas, Southern California, Arizona, Florida, South Carolina, Florida and Georgia to join the Poolwerx family. Interested prospects should have an entrepreneurial drive and managerial and retail experience.
Originally founded in Australia, Poolwerx entered the United States in 2015 and quickly became the nation’s leading pool and spa service franchise with locations across the Sunbelt region. Committed to creating healthy pools for residences and commercial locations, Poolwerx provides a multitude of services including chemical testing, equipment repair and regular pool servicing. The Poolwerx brand is growing across the country through franchising, and has opportunities available for retail space, mobile units or multi-territory agreements.
