Do I need to do ALL the pool cleaning and equipment repair and installation myself or can I hire people to do it and just be a manager?2021-08-10T16:05:07+00:00

No one is going to be as invested in your business as you are. We find that, at least in the beginning, owner/operators are better able to establish and grow their business. As you add more customers, there will come a time when you may need to add another truck and build a team. That’s where being a franchisee is helpful – Ultra Pool Care Squad’s support team can help you make the correct moves to keep your business growing.
