Supporting franchise success with Poolwerx
Entrepreneurship is the goal of many ambitious Australians, however the challenges that business-ownership present can often be overwhelming.
While studies indicate that four out of five Australian businesses fail within the first five years, success within the franchise sector has proved far less elusive.
Franchise opportunities provide an accessible and structured approach to business systems, with 80 per cent of franchise businesses succeeding within the first five years.
After 26 years in the industry, Australian franchise Poolwerx recently celebrated an impressive milestone, announcing in August the brand had reached 100 franchise partners, 100 retail stores and $100 million in revenue.
The achievement was the culmination of consistent hard work and investment from Poolwerx franchise partners, along with the ongoing commitment from support staff to help every step of the way.
Since then, Poolwerx has continued its run of expansion, raising global retail stores numbers to over 150 with a network of 540 service vehicles, making the brand the largest pool service business worldwide, and third largest pool retailer.
Underpinning the brand’s continued success has been Poolwerx’s constant dedicated approach to franchise support.
In order to ensure the success of each of its franchise partners, Poolwerx has developed an ongoing and comprehensive support and training program, providing franchisees with the best platform to launch their business.
Prospective franchisees receive a three week intensive “Deep End Academy” course, which serves as the industry’s best pool management education program, with a strong emphasis on technology, business management and professional growth.
Throughout the entire process, Poolwerx supplies a regional business development manager to work with the franchise partner on business planning, training and support as well as helping to outline day-to-day tasks.
Having the support of a dedicated team of franchise professionals allows Poolwerx franchisees to hit the ground running, as well as provide them with the knowledge to handle everything that business ownership throws at them.
Additionally, Poolwerx franchisees have access to the brand’s support centre, where a team of inhouse experts can supply additional information and support in marketing, supply, IT, finance, retail and HR.
As a first-time business owner, support and guidance is critical to ensuring sustained success from day one, and a franchise opportunity with Poolwerx presents a proven track record for steady growth.
