On February 19, Pinch A Penny Pool Patio and Spa — a swimming pool retail, service, and repair franchise — announced the opening of its newest franchised location in Kingwood, Texas. This marks the brand’s 16th location in the state and 12th in the greater Houston area. Located at 4522 Kingwood Dr., the new store is a retail conversion and operated by first-time franchisee Thomas Parison, who previously owned Texas Tom’s Pool Supplies for more than a decade before converting that business into his new Pinch A Penny location.
“After spending more than 20 years in the pool industry as an independent business owner, I was looking for an opportunity to join an established brand that could provide the resources I needed to take my operations to the next level,” Parison says. “When Pinch A Penny began expanding its footprint in Texas, I saw firsthand how well the brand resonated with residents in our communities and jumped at the opportunity to be a part of expanding its presence in Houston.”
Pinch A Penny has continued to target Texas as a prime market for expansion, and the opening of this new location is fueled by the tremendous success in franchise development the company experienced in 2018. On the heels of its latest opening in the Houston area, the brand is accelerating its growth plans for Texas in 2019, with additional new locations slated to open in the San Antonio and Dallas areas over the next three months.
“With our existing stores in the state performing exceedingly well, we’re eager to catapult our presence even more in the region,” says Michael Arrowsmith, chief development officer of Pinch A Penny. “The Kingwood store opening showcases our capabilities to make the conversion process seamless and efficient, which saves our franchisees time and money and positions them for success.”
Pinch A Penny is currently seeking qualified candidates to join its growing brand. The company currently has franchise opportunities available in markets throughout Texas and the Southeastern U.S., including Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi.
