Pinch A Penny Pool Patio Spa Continues Texas Expansion with 19th Location
Pinch A Penny Pool Patio Spa recently announced the opening of its newest location, in Conroe, Texas, its 14th location in the greater Houston area and 19th overall in the state. With pool development projected to surge in the coming years as a result of the pandemic, the pool industry has boomed in Texas with Houston near the top of the most pool-dense markets in the country, coming in at #3.
First-time franchisee Kevin Glass seized an opportunity to leverage this growing trend by shifting careers from the oil industry and investing in a Pinch A Penny franchise. Before becoming a franchisee, Glass spent more than 35 years as an engineer and compilation manager in Houston’s oil and gas industry. With the energy landscape becoming increasingly turbulent and retirement on the horizon, he began looking into business ownership as a way to take control of his and his family’s future. After discovering Pinch A Penny, he and his wife Debbie were interested in investing in a booming service brand business niche in their own backyard.
“The oil and gas industry has always been volatile, so the idea of finding something more stable that would allow me to take control of my own destiny really stood out to me,” he said. “When I found the Pinch A Penny franchise opportunity, I knew I had found the best option for me.”
Glass cited the brand’s well-established reputation, proven track record of sustainable success, multiple revenue streams, exceptional training, and a resilient business model that has withstood numerous economic disruptions, including the pandemic. “That, coupled with Houston’s pool market being on the rise, we’ve already seen immense success just from offering the service portion of our business before even opening our retail store,” he said.
Since entering Texas in 2016, the franchisor has targeted key markets throughout the state for new store development and has two additional stores planned for the Houston and Dallas areas, both slated to open this summer.
“We have consistently seen a huge demand for quality retail pool supply and service operators in Texas, and Kevin Glass’s early success is proof of that,” said Michael Arrowsmith, the brand’s chief development officer.
Pinch A Penny, with 260 locations across the Southeastern U.S. and Texas, is currently seeking qualified candidates, including existing pool store operators. Franchise opportunities are available in markets throughout Texas and the Southeastern U.S., including Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi.
