- Leading Swimming Pool Retail & Service Franchise to Serve Residents in Copperfield, South Katy and Spring, Texas -
CLEARWATER, Fla. (June 7, 2017) Pinch A Penny Pool Patio and Spa, the world's largest swimming pool retail, service, and repair franchise, announced today its continued franchise expansion in Texas with the opening of three additional locations in Copperfield, South Katy and Spring, Texas. This rapid growth marks the brand's seventh store opening across the state since the beginning of 2016.
"We're thrilled to welcome three additional franchisees to the Pinch A Penny Pool Patio and Spa family," said John Thomas, CEO of Pinch A Penny Pool Patio and Spa. "We set our sights on the Lone Star State and the community response has been incredible. Pinch A Penny is experiencing tremendous growth and Texas continues to be a viable market for potential franchisees. We are eager to serve the greater Houston area and look forward to our franchisees' continued success and development throughout Texas."
The new location in Copperfield is located at 8945 Highway 6 North Suite #260 and is owned by husband-and-wife team Andre and Alena Massey. In addition to franchise ownership, Andre is currently involved in the oil and gas industry, while Alena previously served as a corporate trust analyst in the finance sector. The Masseys decided to pursue a venture with Pinch A Penny Pool Patio and Spa because of the extensive training and resources provided for them to successfully lead their own business.
The South Katy store is located at 9722 Gaston Road and is owned by local entrepreneurs Angel and Adriana Arciniegas, who have several years of experience in the retail industry. As the industry's leading pool retail, service and repair franchise, the duo saw an opportunity to provide a one-stop shop for local residents' swimming pool supply and service needs. The storefront is slated to open in mid-June.
The newest Pinch A Penny Pool Patio and Spa, located in Spring, will also open its doors in mid-June and will be located at 18486 Kuykendahl Road. This location is owned by Jim Hollebrands. Prior to franchising, Hollebrands was involved in the automotive industry. After more than 20 years in corporate, the entrepreneur will utilize his experience to own and operate his new business.
In addition to these latest openings, Pinch A Penny Pool Patio and Spa plans to open its first store in the Dallas area by the end of the year. The concept is continuing to target additional areas in Texas, including Austin, Brownsville, College Station, Corpus Christie, El Paso and San Antonio.
