Pinch A Penny Pool Patio Spa Expands Louisiana Footprint With Newest Store Opening In Monroe
Leading Swimming Pool Retail & Service Brand Debuts In Northern Louisiana
May 17, 2021 // Franchising.com // CLEARWATER, Fla. - Pinch A Penny Pool Patio Spa announced today the opening of its newest franchised location in Monroe, Louisiana. Located at 3101 Cypress St., Suite 1, the new store marks the brand’s fourth location in Louisiana and first within the northern part of the state.
Behind Pinch A Penny’s Northern Louisiana development are first-time franchisees, Aaron and Elizabeth Phillips. Aaron previously held a career as a law enforcement officer before becoming a case worker for the Louisiana Department of Children & Family Services while Elizabeth has a background in project management and currently works in operations management at Lumen, a telecom company. Preparing for their future, the couple had been looking for the right opportunity to finally make their business ownership dreams a reality and witnessed the stability of the pool and spa industry during the pandemic. After researching franchise options, the Phillips were immediately impressed with Pinch A Penny’s family-oriented business model designed to assist franchisees every step of the way and decided to pursue their first venture in business ownership alongside the brand. Now, the duo plans to co-own the Monroe location as Elizabeth continues in her current career and Aaron serves as the day-to-day store operator.
“While I always loved my career working for the state of Louisiana, this past year had a significant impact on my perspective related to our long-term goals, and my wife and I made the decision that we no longer wanted to wait to pursue our dream of becoming business owners,” said Aaron Phillips, owner of Pinch A Penny, Monroe. “We knew from the start that franchising was the route we wanted to take because of the support and name recognition the model provides so, it was a matter of finding the right brand to grow with. Pinch A Penny immediately stood out to us – from the industry’s proven track record of success to the brand’s multiple revenue streams – I saw a huge opportunity to enter the next phase of my life while filling a much-needed business niche in our local community.”
On the heels of the opening of its 14th Houston-area store in Conroe last month, Pinch A Penny will open another Houston store in The Woodlands as well as a location in the Lake Arlington neighborhood of Dallas-Fort Worth in June. Additionally, Pinch A Penny is pre-building a new store in the North Richland Hills area of Dallas to meet the increased demand for pool service and supplies resulting from accelerated swimming pool construction across the state.
“Franchisees like the Phillips represent what we at Pinch A Penny take the most pride in: families pursuing their dreams of business ownership while being of service to their communities,” said Michael Arrowsmith, Chief Development Officer of Pinch A Penny.
Pinch A Penny Pool Patio Spa of Monroe will serve customers Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
