Poolwerx growing internationally, opening 11 stores in 11 months
Poolwerx USA would like to congratulate our Australian counterparts on opening one new international store for every month this year! Poolwerx is continuing to grow even in these difficult economic times, both in the U.S. and abroad.
Franchise Business Executive reports, “Poolwerx opens 11 stores in 11 months, with conversions and new outlets in the mix. The openings are evidence, says founder and CEO John O’Brien, of the demand for home services.
The pool care chain has acquired five independent pool servicing stores across Australia and New Zealand– in Baulkham Hills in New South Wales, Kings Park and Hampstead Gardens South Australia and another two due to open on New Zealand’s North Island.
John O’Brien said “In all of these acquisitions, we’re helping long term industry veterans with their exit strategy. I’m also buoyed to see our existing franchise partners continue to grow their business and open new retail locations, which speaks to the resilience of our business model, even in the midst of a recession.
“The home service industry has proven time and time again to be recession-resistant and this has become particularly evident during Covid-19,” O’Brien said.
