The local economy is booming. The population is growing at a 7% rate and consists of an affluent, educated populace in the education and healthcare center of the entire region. The large and growing number of pools, decks, and equipment in the market area all need major and minor service, repair, and replacement on a year-round basis.

The business can easily be expanded into new areas such as new pool construction, outdoor kitchens, and other market segments including nearby areas not being actively serviced.
Although retiring, the owner is available to support the transition to new ownership with hands on assistance, seller financing, use of contractor license, etc.
