Historically, the pool service industry was filled with men, but recent years have seen a significant increase in female ownership. This rise in women breaking into what could be seen as traditionally male industries is in part due to the rise of franchising.
Forbes highlights this trend report which shows a 24% increase in women-owned franchise businesses over the past decade. Furthermore, 41% of all new franchises opened in the last 24 months are women-owned businesses, indicating that women are increasingly getting involved in franchising in almost every industry.
Franchising has been a popular business model for several decades and is continuing to grow as the years go by. One of the key benefits of franchising for entrepreneurs is the ability to own and operate an independent business, but still receive support and guidance from an established brand.
America’s Swimming Pool Company is proud to have successful female franchise owners, such as Tina from Schertz, TX. She was interested in our franchise and felt a strong connection early on when inquiring about owning an America’s Swimming Pool Company franchise.
One of the reasons for this increase in female franchise ownership is the availability of resources and the support network provided by America’s Swimming Pool Company. Our established business model gives each franchise owner a structure to follow, thereby increasing their chances of success. In addition, we provide a support network that will help women balance the demands of work and family life. This flexibility is a perk that many franchise owners have not experienced while working in typical corporate jobs.
While women still face unique challenges in franchising, at America’s Swimming Pool Company we pride ourselves on creating a promising opportunity for women to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams. We look forward to the pool service industry becoming more diverse and inclusive as more women take advantage of this opportunity.
Overall the increase in female ownership in franchising is a positive development for the industry. America’s Swimming Pool Company is playing a crucial role in supporting female franchise owners by providing resources and support networks. By expanding our franchise owner network with a wide range of owners, franchising can become a more welcoming and supportive environment for women entrepreneurs.
