The Orlando Business Journal recently featured an article detailing the opening of three Pool Scouts territories in Merritt Island by former aviation executive, Jim Stepnoski. While attending college in Florida, Stephnoski knew it was the place he wanted to reside for the rest of his life. He had a successful 36-year career in the aviation field before deciding to pursue business ownership himself. A three-decade-long Floridian, he was aware of the need for a pool maintenance business in the local community, which was why he pursued Pool Scouts.

“I said ‘yes’ to Pool Scouts because of the industry, the location and the team. I met with the Pool Scouts team and realized the business model is very differentiated,” Stephnoski said. “They already adapted to the uniqueness of the Florida market while maintaining brand standards.”

Based in Virginia Beach, Pool Scouts is the premier pool service franchise that provides pool cleaning, maintenance and minor repair services in over 100 territories in 17 states. Technicians are trained in testing, monitoring, treating and servicing pools and can provide ongoing service as well as help at the beginning and end of the summer season. The brand also saw a revenue jump of 77.8% in Q3 of 2021 versus Q3 of 2020, with sales rising 76.3% year-to-date
