Pool franchise werx very well

PoolWerx franchisees Paul and Caroline Attard are not the kind of couple to let a bit of glitter get in the way of a hard day's work.

Just days after taking out the award for top multi-unit franchise in Australia, they were back on the job.

The pair, who set up their first PoolWerx man-in-a-van type franchise in 2005, now have two retail stores and six mobile vans across Mt Gravatt, Balmoral, Rochedale and Carindale, turning over more than $2.1million.

"I was operations director for an events and experiential marketing company and Caroline was running her own child care business from home,' Mr Attard said.

"However, we wanted to be in control of our own destiny and build a strong future for our children.

"We started with a van and no customers and after fine tuning our service delivery and establishing a regular clientbase we invested in our first retail store in 2006.

"We've since followed PoolWerx's career pathway, growing through multiple vans and retail stores."

PoolWerx took out the multi-unit category at last year's Franchise Council of Australia awards as well, when West Brisbane franchisees Tony and Michelle Graham won the gong.
