Pinch A Penny Pool Patio Spa Propels Texas Growth With The Opening Of Its 14th Houston Area Store
Oil Industry Veteran Now Offering Pool Retail, Service and Repair in Conroe
April 20, 2021 // Franchising.com // CLEARWATER, Fla. - Pinch A Penny Pool Patio Spa announced today the opening of its newest franchised location in Conroe, Texas. Located at 4489 W. Davis St., Suite 220, the new store marks the brand's 14th location in the greater Houston area and 19th overall in the state. On the heels of the Conroe opening, the swimming pool franchise leader will further expand its Texas footprint with two additional stores planned for the Houston and Dallas areas, both slated to open this summer.
The Conroe Pinch A Penny is owned and operated by first-time franchisee Kevin Glass. Prior to joining Pinch A Penny, Glass held a longstanding career in Houston's oil and gas industry, spending over 35 years as an engineer and compilation manager. With the energy landscape becoming increasingly turbulent and retirement on Glass' horizon, he began looking into business ownership as a way to take control of his and his family's future. After discovering what Pinch A Penny had to offer, he was immediately blown away by the brand's top-notch leadership, customer-centric values and unparalleled support. Additionally, with Houston ranking #3 for most pool-dense markets in the country, he and his wife, Debbie, were interested in entering a booming 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. When I found the Pinch A Penny franchise opportunity, I knew I had found the best option for me," said Kevin Glass, owner of Pinch A Penny, Conroe. "Pinch A Penny is a well-established legacy brand with a proven track record of sustainable success fueled by 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."
Since entering Texas in 2016, Pinch A Penny has continually targeted key markets throughout the state for new store development, including the greater Houston and Dallas-Fort Worth areas. As pool sales and construction surged amid the pandemic, the future demand for pool supplies and services in Texas is unprecedented, leading Pinch A Penny to pre-build new stores in the North Richland Hills and Flower Mound neighborhoods of Dallas. Looking ahead, the company will continue its statewide development with two new locations opening in The Woodlands and Lake Arlington later this year.
"We have consistently seen a huge demand for quality retail pool supply and service operators in Texas, and Kevin Glass' early success is proof of that with him already deploying a second service truck before even opening the retail portion of his business," said Michael Arrowsmith, Chief Development Officer of Pinch A Penny. "At Pinch A Penny, we're honored to join with hard-working franchisees like Kevin who are looking to take the next step in their careers and build a legacy alongside us. As we continue our development across Texas, we plan to build upon the momentum we've achieved so far thanks to our dedicated franchisees and look forward to servicing the tremendous pool growth to come."
Pinch A Penny Pool Patio Spa of Conroe will serve customers Monday-Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
