Launched in 2016 by Buzz Franchise Brands, Pool Scouts is a refreshing take on the pool service industry. The Pool Scouts business is meeting the need for a more professional pool cleaning and maintenance solution in a booming home services industry. Pool Scouts is already making a splash as one of Entrepreneur’s Top New Franchises in 2019, with 43 territories sold across 8 states and there’s still plenty of room to grow!


Pool Scouts franchise costs are significantly less than most franchises due to low initial staffing needs and the ability to operate as a home-based business. Though actual costs vary, a typical franchise investment for a single territory is structured as follows:

  • Franchise Fee*: $20,000
  • Marketing, Supplies, Insurance & Forms: $35,000
  • Computer Devices & Software: $3,000
  • Tools, Chemicals & Equipment: $6,000
  • Additional Capital: $35,000

Typical Total Initial Investment: $105,000
