Q3. Why did you choose Jims Pool care, What appealed to you about your Franchise?
As a franchisee I have chosen the Jims Pool Group because it focuses more on customer service and efficiency. I actually had a Jim’s Cleaning lady come to my house. At that time, I did not know that there was a Pool Division. Hence, I wanted to find out for myself!

My plan is to develop a business where by my customers are happy knowing their pool or investment is in expert hands at reasonable service costs
