Probity Pool’s Commitment to Veterans Runs Deep: Ensuring Retired Gunnery Sergeant Can Enjoy His Pool - SimplePR

 Probity Pool’s commitment to veterans runs deep. In addition to hiring veterans, supporting veterans’ causes, and encouraging those transitioning from military to civilian life to explore franchising as a path to small business ownership, we look for opportunities to help veterans like Peter Vargas, retired Gunnery Sergeant, USMC, who lives near our corporate headquarters in Longwood, Florida.

Mr. Vargas enjoys using his pool for exercise, as it helps alleviate his arthritis. However, keeping up with his pool was proving difficult. When we learned Mr. Vargas needed assistance, we jumped at the opportunity to lend a hand, providing our continued pool maintenance services free of charge.

We are honored to help one of our nation’s heroes, and enjoyed hearing about Mr. Vargas’ time running the ROTC program at Edgewater High School in Orlando, Florida. Like many veterans, Mr. Vargas reports that his time in the military taught him things like personal responsibility and the value of structure.

For us, the time we spent with Mr. Vargas was a lesson in and of itself, reminding us of the strength, selflessness, and integrity that typify the men and women who serve and protect our country.

We’re proud to report how Mr. Vargas feels about Probity Pools as a company, because we strive to go above and beyond for all of our customers. Mr. Vargas told our president, Kevin Baron,  “I’ve been working with your company for over 3 years. Your techs do a great job keeping up with the pool and are very sensitive to personal requests.”


Veterans Transitioning to Civilian Life Explore Small Business Ownership

Service franchises gives veterans transitioning to civilian life a chance to take control of their personal and financial futures with a proven, market-tested business opportunity in the growing swimming pool industry.

“I have been working in the pool maintenance industry for approximately 2 ½ years, and I believe it’s a great fit for service members transitioning from active duty to civilian life. The industry has given me excellent work-life balance and allows me to do way more than sit behind a desk all day. The discipline and leadership skills I developed through my years of service made me a natural fit for the pool services industry, and helped distinguish me from my competition right off the bat.”

Probity Pool Services is committed to hiring veterans, supporting veteran’s causes, and helping veterans and military members transitioning to civilian life become small business owners. Partnering with the International Franchise Association and VetFran, Probity Pools offers financial incentives to qualified veterans who dream of owning their own business, helping to pave the way for their success as they explore new chapters in their careers.  

According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the uncertain economy and scarce career opportunities for veterans has promoted many veterans to research the benefits of franchise ownership. This is welcome news to Probity Pools, recognizing the value of leadership, wisdom, and innate integrity that service members bring to the table.

Probity Pool’s $5,000 discount of the initial franchise fee gives many veterans the extra financial support they need to set them on the path to small business ownership. Working for themselves and controlling their own financial futures is a goal of many former service members, and Probity Pools sees no better candidates for a pool service business than the men and women who selflessly serve our country.

With their no-holds-barred, can-do attitudes, veterans make ideal Probity Pools Services franchise owners because they embody the values that help make our company a success: integrity, hard work, attention to detail, perseverance, and the desire to achieve. We pledge to work side-by-side with our veteran candidates, giving them the comprehensive training and ongoing support they need to launch their own successful businesses.

“When I trained with Kevin Baron of Probity Pools, he covered pool maintenance and repairs, and how he handled his administrative systems. The training was extensive, lasting a couple of weeks, and included ongoing support over several months.  Probity’s training program gave me the knowledge, confidence, and skills I needed to successfully operate my pool business.  If you are fully committed to learning the pool maintenance business, I’m confident that Probity Pools will give you the skills and training you need to be a success.”

At Probity Pools, our support and respect for veterans runs deep. We look forward to streamlining the path to small business success for as many veterans as possible, knowing their proven mettle, ingenuity, and commitment will help them succeed as part of the Probity Pools family.
