VIRGINIA BEACH, V.A, – Pool Scouts, the 65-unit pool cleaning franchise, has been recognized among some of the top franchises in the industry in Entrepreneur’s 2024 Franchise 500 ranking. The ranking is one of the most competitive and thorough in the industry, considering factors like unit growth, financial strength and brand power to develop the list. Pool Scouts secured spot No. 497.

A spot on the Franchise 500 ranking is a sought-after honor in the franchise industry as the list serves as a valuable resource for prospective franchisees to research opportunities. This year, the ranking was more competitive than ever, with 1,389 franchises up for consideration.

“Every brand on the Franchise 500 has its own unique story, but they all collectively make the same statement: Franchising is strong and resilient, is full of innovation and opportunity, and provides a powerful entrepreneurial path for many people,” said Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur Magazine. “Our 45th annual ranking is full of companies with fresh ideas, exciting business models, cultural sway, and the kind of business sophistication that will define the next 45 years and beyond.”

Pool Scouts demonstrates this very business sophistication with steady financials, a strong set of franchisees and a willingness to continually adapt. 

Last year, the brand launched its new renovations-focused arm, PoolCare+. Though Pool Scouts franchisees nationwide have been able to capture much of their markets and establish strong relationships with their customers, PoolCare+ further expands the brand’s share of wallet. In addition to standard cleaning, Pool Scouts franchisees can now facilitate resurfacing, tiling, coping, deck enhancements and more.

With its expanding footprint, Pool Scouts is also dedicated to supporting franchisees’ success through strong territory-level performance driven by share of wallet expansion, revenue per customer expansion and customer acquisition. As it continues to grow, maintaining its status as a top-performing franchise brand, Pool Scouts is working to expand in Texas metropolitan areas; Las Vegas; Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; Fayetteville, North Carolina; Alabama; the greater Phoenix, Arizona area; and New Orleans. 


Virginia Beach, VA-based Pool Scouts is a premier pool service franchise focused on delivering a quality, consistent brand experience while providing pool cleaning, maintenance and minor repair services at residential properties. 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. With 105+ territories across 17 states, Pool Scouts offers a great opportunity as a low-cost franchise in the pool services industry with available territories across the United States.
