Dill Dinkers™ Regional Development Deal in Arizona

December 19, 2023 // Franchising.com // TUCSON, Ariz. - Dill Dinkers Pickleball announced today its development deal for five locations in Tucson, Arizona.

Spearheading the business in Arizona, are the husband-and-wife team, Nathan and Lizz Andersen who are eager to introduce Dill Dinkers' climate-controlled and Indoor pickleball facilities to their community. Nathan has spent the last eight years developing and refining strategy for a major U.S. industrial corporation with core concentrations in manufacturing, process engineering, and management. After successful business implementation, he witnessed how he was able to improve the lives of others and grew to find a passion for driving a culture of continuous improvement. Seeking a greater way Nathan could achieve this in his personal and professional life, he found his entrepreneurial journey with Dill Dinkers. With the support of Lizz, who brings her experience as a Director of the Junior School in their commonwealth and as a homeschool teacher, they are looking forward to improving the lives of others in Tucson through employing good people, and building a strong community focused on promoting physical, mental and social well-being.

“The Andersen’s are exactly the type of franchisees we are looking for”, says Dr. Ben Litalien, Chief Development Officer. "We are excited to support them as they build something special for the Tucson area and for their family.”

As very hands-on individuals, Nathan, Lizz, and their six children are passionate about being involved with and developing the youth in their community. Nathan who played competitive tennis saw the transition to pickleball as a way to enjoy a game with his family regardless of skill level and axiom the opportunity to offer other families the same enjoyment. Aside from sports, the family is actively involved in the youth group at their local church and assists young volunteers in planning and carrying out events for over 150 participants. 

“When we met the Dill Dinkers team, we valued how genuine and open they were to feedback and innovation,” said Nathan Andersen. “In manufacturing and engineering, it was essential to continually improve and tweak our processes and systems, allowing for resiliency to externalities. I see the same mentality and value for success within Dill Dinkers.”
