Twin Lakes Pool & BBQ
Twin Lakes Pool & BBQ is an independently owned swimming pool, spa and outdoor products company that includes a retail store as well as repair, weekly pool maintenance and new pool contruction/renovation departments. The business is headquartered in Cooper City, Fla.
Twin Lakes Pool & BBQ was founded in 1974, when Earl Snapp started a one-man, single-truck pool cleaning business with the help of a small loan from his mother. He often worked from sunrise to sunset in the field, then returned at night to complete paperwork.
After working by himself for a few years, Snapp decided he wanted Twin Lakes Pool & BBQ to grow into a larger company. So in 1978, he opened a small retail store, along with the ever-growing pool cleaning business, in Cooper City. As the years progressed, so did Twin Lakes Pool & BBQ. The company eventually outgrew its small facility, so Snapp decided to relocate nearby to accommodate and expand the business.
In 2010, Twin Lakes Pool & BBQ had four separate departments with more than 30 employees.
