Charlotte Ranks Among Top 5 Best Places to Start a Business

March 10, 2020

Pool Scouts was recently featured in the Charlotte Area News for the recent expansion in the area.

Pool Scouts provides pool cleaning, maintenance and minor pool repair services for residential pool owners. Within the first two years of business, Pool Scouts has seen steady expansion, with 43 territories sold.

According to Timothy Holadia, Director of Development for Buzz Franchise Brands, the Charlotte market includes five territories in which both Pool Scouts and Home Clean Heroes could thrive.

“Residents who decide to open Pool Scouts or Home Clean Heroes in Charlotte will have a great support system,” said Holadia. “We currently have a Pool Scouts franchisee, Tiffiny Consoli, nearby in the Raleigh, NC area. Tiffiny was actually our first Pool Scouts franchisee and has seen great success in her territories since opening in 2016. Knowing our corporate office is only about a six-hour drive from Charlotte and we have a presence near the region, franchisees in the market will have many resources at their disposal.”

According to Michael Hall, Principal/Senior Consultant of FranNet Carolina, there are several things that make Charlotte a good place to start a business.

“The population continues to grow at a steady clip and this includes all demographics and income levels,” said Hall. “There are customers for products and services offered by smaller businesses, and space for lease is relatively inexpensive when compared to many other mid-to-large cities in the country, so the retail environment is favorable for those businesses needing some sort of space.”

Hall notes that Charlotte also has a great support system for businesses within the region. This includes a strong Chamber of Commerce and several strong incubator and startup mentoring efforts and initiatives that are available to work with small businesses.
