Poolwerx Expands Into 8 States with Pool Service in Georgia

Josh Jenkins Edited

Poolwerx is now servicing pools in eight states with the addition of franchise partner Josh Jenkins. Jenkins now owns and operates a mobile-only Poolwerx territory in Rome, Georgia.

Jenkins, a trained pharmacist, is currently a market health and wellness director at Walmart. In addition to managing operations for Walmart pharmacies and vision centers, he owns two additional businesses. Jenkins is the owner and operator of a Jimmy John’s franchise restaurant and a property management company. Despite not having a pool industry background, as an entrepreneur and pool homeowner, Jenkins recognized the lack of reputable pool service companies in his community and began researching opportunities.

“I came across Poolwerx through a simple Google search. I had met with several pool companies, but I knew I had found my new business partners when I met the Poolwerx team,” says Jenkins. “I was impressed with their approach to franchising, their emphasis on technical and business training and their overall vision and commitment to core values.”

All incoming, new-to-industry Poolwerx franchise partners are quickly brought up to speed with a comprehensive residential pool school “boot camp” at the U.S. training facilities in Dallas. The training facility provides access to hands-on training with a full retail store, an operational pool
with full-range equipment and a business academy taught by categorical specialists. The program covers every aspect of operating a pool business. Upon completion of pool school, and once a partner launches their business, they continue with an intensive 12-month program called Forming Good Habits, which takes franchise partners through every step needed to be the best pool service and supply provider.

“Pool school was eye-opening,” said Daniel Payne, Jenkins’ business partner who manages Poolwerx Rome daily operations and also attended the training. “I thought I knew what pool care was, but the Poolwerx staff went above and beyond. I learned more than I anticipated and was eager to get back to Rome and get our business going.”

With the addition of Poolwerx Rome, Poolwerx now has retail and mobile-only businesses in eight states including Texas, Arizona, California, Oklahoma, Florida, South Carolina and Tennessee. In addition to its rapid grown in the U.S., the company has grown to over 150 stores and over 550 service vehicles globally.

“Josh and Daniel are exactly the kind of partners we look for when growing our brand,” said Andrew Kidd, Poolwerx chief operations officer. “They’re motivated, value hard work and really want to give back to their community. We’re proud to have them represent Poolwerx and introduce our brand to the great state of Georgia.”
