Pool Scouts Reaches Major Milestone with 100th Unit Signed; Wraps Up Q3 With 76.3% Increase in Year-Over-Year Sales

With five new signings in Q3 and steadily increasing sales, the pool cleaning and maintenance brand is well-positioned to close out a record-breaking year on a high note.

Pool Scouts, the pool cleaning and maintenance franchise with 101 territories nationwide, is continuing to surf the wave of the post-pandemic boom in pool construction, breaking revenue and franchise sales goals along the way. The brand saw a revenue jump of 77.8% in Q3 of 2021 versus Q3 of 2020 with sales rising 76.3% year-to-date, and it has signed 20 new franchisees and 39 purchased territories year-to-date. Most notably, this quarter also saw Pool Scouts reach the coveted 100-unit mark and enter its 15th state with the signing of franchisee Clarence Herry in Annapolis, Maryland.

Pool sales, in general, have tripled this year due to the thousands of new pools installed during the pandemic as families spent more time in their outdoor spaces. These new pool owners need help with upkeep, and Pool Scouts is uniquely primed to satisfy this demand with quality and professional maintenance services. As a result, more and more savvy entrepreneurs are recognizing Pool Scouts’ recession- and pandemic-proof business opportunity.

In Q3 of 2021 alone, Pool Scouts welcomed five new franchisees to its system. That’s in addition to the 12 new signings in the first half of the year. On its mission to expand nationwide, Pool Scouts broke into two brand new markets this quarter and also sold out the market of Huntsville, Alabama. Last quarter, Pool Scouts also saw its largest development deal to date with a six-unit agreement in Phoenix, Arizona.

Now, the brand is looking to ride this franchise development momentum into Q4 with hopes to see additional units signed by the end of the year in identified markets primed for growth, including Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Las Vegas, New Orleans and Atlanta. 

“We blew our goals out of the water in the first half of 2021,” said Pool Scouts President Michael Wagner. “The growth in pool owners in 2020 really amplified our target market, and our growing brand awareness put us in a great position to take advantage of that. Our team is ready to keep expanding and bring the Pool Scouts name to communities across the country. Having 100 units signed is a huge deal for any franchise brand, and we are thrilled to have reached that groundbreaking milestone as we wrap up what has already been an amazing year.”
