The Value of Validation from Existing Franchisees

August 31, 2020

Pool Scouts was recently featured in 1851 Magazine’s article highlighting the large role that existing franchisees play in franchise growth.

While franchise growth is such a focus in seeing the franchise business model succeed, it’s important to make sure that those existing franchise relationships are being nurtured. One thing that has helped Pool Scouts find success in the franchise development process, is validation calls. This is when someone in the process of finding out more about the franchise calls an existing franchisee to ask questions, to hear straight from the source how the franchise business model works, how supportive the corporate team is, etc.

Michael Wagner, president of Pool Scouts, credits early-adapters to driving overall revenue growth and believes in nurturing those relationships with corporate resources.

“Being an early franchisee has some benefits and challenges,” Wagner recently told 1851. “Usually the cost to get in is significantly low, but there’s more risk and there’s always some growing pains. If the model is tight and you help those early franchisees find success, then fast growth becomes a much more viable option.”
