Why Small Businesses Matter
Shop small, do big things for your community
Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story.
You're IT Rave Pools!
Three questions with Jaime Garcia and Jessica Rave-Garcia, owners of Rave Pools, LLC.
Why did you start this business?
It all started back in 2013 when Jessica was 5 months pregnant with our first child and was recently laid off because her employer closed the New England office. Jaime had been working with a pool company for several years and learned all the ins and outs of the business. I decided to start working on my own during my "off" hours to bring home some extra income. My business took off and experience rapid growth so Jessica stepped in to run the “office”. It soon became very clear, that starting our own company would be in the best interest for our customers and for the future of our growing family. Collectively we agreed on using Jessica’s last name “Rave”, due to its already well-known catchy marketing phrases. This is how Rave Pools started!
