Another millionaire coming to the rescue by trying to be a Wayne Huizenga of the pool business. Guy is trying to formalize the pool service industry by building large routes with low paid workers and make lots of money.
This was attempted by a guy in Boca Raton ten years ago. US Pool bought out mom and pop operations for under market value (by offering owners jobs/ bond payment plans- which never got paid since he folded before the bond was due). He aquired 5,000 accounts, leased a fleet of trucks, spent money on advertising and muscled suppliers into low margin prices. Ford ate 40 leased/rusted pool trucks, one local supplier took a 700K hit in unpaid bills and the routes ended up disbanding followed by a half azz sell off.
It was the National Marine of the pool business for about 5 years. Looks like this guy is trying to run routes from Coral Gables up through Ft Lauderdale....... D I S A S T E R ! ! ! !
The idea of any route business is keep it centralized/ tight. The guy only makes money when workers are cleaning pools not driving around burning gas......
