The pool service segment has gained another franchiser with aspirations to go national. Virginia Beach, Va.-based Buzz Franchise Brands, parent company to Mosquito Joe pest control services, recently launched Pool Scouts.
The first location opened in Virginia Beach at the start of 2016 and was set up through the acquisition of a construction company’s service division. Pool Scouts will revolve around the cleaning and maintenance of residential pools.
“That’s kind of where our sweet spot is,” said Michael Wagner, president of Pool Scouts. “We do some small repairs and we’ll likely do some commercial pools. But, really, our focus area is on single-family residents with pools in their backyards.”
