Pool Scouts Impressive Year-Over-Year Growth Fuels Expansion in Q3 and Into 2019
Premier Pool Service Franchise Pool Scouts Ramps Up Development Efforts Nationwide After Solid Q3 Performance
November 28, 2018 // Franchising.com // VIRGINIA BEACH, Virginia - Fast-growing residential pool cleaning service franchise Pool Scouts closed the third quarter of 2018 on a high note after securing development agreements in key target markets and more than doubling its number of new customers year over year. The young brand is harnessing this momentum to actively pursue nationwide growth opportunities into 2019.
Pool Scouts enters the final quarter of 2018 outperforming previous growth numbers across the board, most notably posting a year-over-year sales revenue 2.6 times more than last year’s gains. Due to its emphasis on exemplary customer service, the brand has benefitted from an excellent customer referral rate that has driven its nationwide customer count north of 2,400, more than twice what it was at this point last year. Pool Scouts also experienced an influx of new customers year over year, putting up a number 2.3 times higher than in 2017.
“We’re extremely happy with how much Pool Scouts has grown in the last year,” said Pool Scouts President Michael Wagner. “After turning in a solid third quarter, we’re extremely well-positioned to pursue further expansion thanks to a pinpointed development strategy. We’re particularly excited about the number of new customers we were able to attract and we hope to continue bringing exceptional service to even more homes heading into 2019.”
The brand celebrated several signings and openings in Q3, most notably beginning service at Pool Scouts of Naples North and signing a deal to open Pool Scouts of Northern Virginia in the spring of 2019, bringing the total count of Pool Scouts franchisees to 17. Propelled by this positive momentum, Pool Scouts is eyeing further development across the U.S.
Bolstered by the resources and expertise of parent company Buzz Franchise Brands, Pool Scouts plans to leverage this backing as it continues its expansion initiative into new regions of the country. With active territories in eight states, Pool Scouts is targeting prospective franchisees in the states of New York and New Jersey as well as the cities of Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Houston, Jacksonville, Tampa, West Palm Beach and Phoenix. The brand’s development goals for 2019 include signing 45 franchisees, selling 100 territories and opening 40 of those.
“By focusing on intelligent expansion rather than rapid growth alone, we’ve been able to attract extremely competent and skilled franchisees to our system year after year,” Wagner said. “We’ve identified a number of key markets where a service like ours is in high demand and we look forward to finding qualified owners in those markets while closing out 2018 and entering the new year.”
