Pool Scouts*

Founded in 2016, this residential pool cleaning and maintenance solution is booming in the home services industry. Though the costs vary depending on the territory, the estimated initial investment for purchasing a franchise with Pool Scouts is fairly low, which makes it easy to get started. Pool Scouts leverages a proven franchising model to tap into this $3 billion industry where pool owners have been craving a more professional approach towards pool service.

Hounds Town USA

Hounds Town USA is a doggie daycare that is on the rise. Its startup costs are 40% less than its competitors, and it offers an affordable and refreshingly straightforward approach to pet care with no hidden fees or extra charges for add-on services. The doggie daycare franchise prides itself on its experience and ability to group dogs based on their natural temperament in order to provide the structure dogs crave. The brand also cares for all types of dogs, including "bully breeds" and disabled dogs.

Footprints Floors* 

Footprints Floors is growing  quickly across the United States. Its unique business model has led it to expand into more than 20 states with over 130 territories. There is no rent, no construction and no HR costs, which make its overhead costs extremely low and margins very attractive.

Shuckin' Shack Oyster Bar

With 16 total restaurants, Shuckin’ Shack now boasts 14 franchised units across four states and is gearing up for major growth across the United States, including in areas people wouldn’t expect to be able to order fresh seafood year-round. Shuckin' Shack Oyster Bar grew out of a vision for a local establishment that would appeal to families of all ages,  place where friends and family can enjoy fresh, delicious meals and creative cocktails in an environment that exudes relaxation. Shuckin' Shack offers its guests a "lifestyle experience" in addition to exceptional seafood.

TruBlue Total House Care

TruBlue Total House Care is perfectly positioned for the next golden opportunity in the exploding Senior Care Market. More than 10,000 people will turn 65 years of age every day for the next 20 years, and nearly 90% of them want to “age in place” (stay in their homes as long as possible). TruBlue was founded, designed and structured to specifically and successfully make that happen.
