The Power of Franchising

One of the biggest benefits of joining the Poolwerx brand is the power of franchising and what it can do for your business.

Whether you’re opening a new franchise, converting your existing business to the Poolwerx brand or taking over an existing Poolwerx franchise, the power of franchising (the Poolwerx way) will help you succeed.

With Poolwerx, the power of franchising means always having someone to call and ask advice about that tricky pool maintenance job or frustrating computer problem. It means benefiting from the collective business and pool maintenance learning of more than 100 Franchise Partners across the US, Australia and New Zealand. It means comprehensive online and offline marketing to promote you and your business in a way you could never achieve on your own. It means ongoing training to keep you and your staff at the top of your game and the peak of industry best practice. It means buying power that keeps you competitive and profitable. It means business coaching, support and KPIs to keep you accountable and help you grow. And it means a clear and proven path to business growth and success with experienced guidance every step of the way.

From our Poolwerx Values to our “4 Tiers in 5 Years” business development program, the Poolwerx franchise model is designed and managed to ensure your success.

Your success is our success

While it might sound clichéd, and even obvious, we know that our success is based directly on the success of our Franchise Partners. This direct relationship drives our team even further to ensure you have the support required to do as well as you can in your business. With guidance from our internal company Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), our support centre team works closely with you to help ensure your success in all areas, including:

  1. Annual sales targets
  2. Franchise Partner satisfaction
  3. Franchise Partner profitability
  4. Being the most recognisable brand

As you can see, this isn’t just about your numbers (although numbers are certainly important). It’s also about your satisfaction and well-being as a valued member of the Poolwerx family.

Poolwerx also works closely with industry bodies such as local, state and national government entities to obtain certification for you and your team.

More than a job

Being a Poolwerx Franchise Partner is more than a job. It’s a career path – and an exciting one at that.

As a Franchise Partner, you’ll run a business rich with opportunities for expansion and growth in your assigned franchise territory. Whether you start big or small, with a single mobile service truck or your existing retail store, we’ve developed a sophisticated and proven system you can follow to develop your business as far as you want, expanding with multiple vehicles and retail stores across your original marketing area and on into new assigned territories.

Not only will our “4 Tiers in 5 Years” business development program lay out your pathway for growth, but you’ll also be supported every step of the way as you follow the dream of owning and operating your own business.

We live & breathe our values

Poolwerx is a values-driven organisation.

With clear values that have been developed and agreed upon by our Franchise Partners and support staff, each member of the Poolwerx family is required to sign onto – and live – our company values. These values define the way everyone works together in our individual businesses and as members of the Poolwerx family overall. They define how we interact with our clients and suppliers. They define how we contribute to the world around us and they challenge us to exceed expectations and goals at every turn.

Every journey is different and our goal is to help you understand what Poolwerx has to offer to help you determine if Poolwerx is the right fit for you, but likewise if you are the right fit for Poolwerx. Here we answer the top 10 questions to ask before buying a franchise business: How do you determine your territories? We have exclusive marketing areas, which are determined by swimming pool numbers and postcodes. We know that to operate a successful retail store and three mobile service vehicles you need a minimum number of swimming pools per marketing area so we monitor this closely. I have owned my own swimming pool and loved looking after it – do you train me? Yes, we provide full training when you join Poolwerx. Our initial training commences with 40 hours of online tutorials, which is the commencement of a Certificate III in Swimming Pool & Spa Maintenance. This is followed by three weeks in-house training, followed by a 12 month Forming Good Habits program once you commence in your franchise. Do you provide finance to purchase a franchise? Most Franchise Partners will need to obtain a loan to purchase their franchised business. Joining a well-established franchise network is often looked at favourably by banks, making it easier to obtain financing. Poolwerx has developed strong relationships with a number of major banks across Australia to help prospective franchisees obtain financing, which we can help facilitate. What happens when I want to sell? Your franchise is yours to sell. Your franchise agreement outlines the requirements for a sale, and the prospective buyer will need to go through our standard recruitment and selection process. What are the fees you charge? We operate on a sliding fee scale which includes service fees and marketing fees based on gross turnover. These fees are performance-based and also consider whether you have a retail shop front. Full details are provided in our Franchise Disclosure Document. How much does it cost to purchase a franchise? The initial investment for a franchise depends on a range of factors, including the marketing area, location and size. Initial investments can range from $110,000 (plus the cost of a van) to over $500,000. Do you provide an Income Guarantee? We don’t provide income guarantees but what we do offer is 25 years of successful franchise partners backed by great margins and profits, systems, training and support. Being an FCA Multi-Award Winning Franchise means our business works and delivers success to those that follow the system. What type of vehicle do I need to operate a Mobile Unit? Your primary vehicle needs to be a Hyundai iLoad van. How long does your recruitment onboarding process take? Once approved, you could be operational in as little as three months. During that time, you will attend our Discovery Day, commence your online training and complete three weeks of in-house training. Your cooperation with the franchising team will ensure your application progresses as quickly as possible. As a franchise partner am I required to operate a retail store? Yes. Everyone who starts with Poolwerx will be expected to transition to a Retail Store. To be successful, it is essential that the franchise partner is personally involved in all aspects of the business. You must be willing and able to perform all sales, technical and management functions which will require a significant time investment. Running a store is a mandatory requirement as part of Poolwerx Franchise Partners' road to success.
