Pinch A Penny Pool Patio Spa, the nation's largest swimming pool retail, service, and repair franchise, announced today the opening of its newest Texas franchise, located at 9711 S. Mason Road, Suite 105 in the Pecan Grove community of Richmond. Since launching its development strategy for Texas, Pinch A Penny has had tremendous success growing its footprint in key target markets, with the new Pecan Grove store marking the brand's 13th location in the Houston metro area and 18th overall in the state.
Pinch A Penny of Pecan Grove is owned and operated by husband-and-wife team Carlos and Valeska Davila, first-time franchisees who previously owned an independent pool company in Boca Raton, Florida for four years before moving to Houston to open their Pinch A Penny store. They are joined in this venture by Valeska's sister and brother-in-law, Maivi and Tom DuMont. As an established franchisor with a proven business model, Pinch A Penny has emerged as an ideal franchise opportunity for entrepreneurs who, like the Davilas and DuMonts, are seeking a viable opportunity to open a family-owned business in their community.
"Pinch A Penny is an exceptional business that combines retail, pool cleaning, and backyard services to offer multiple revenue streams, and becoming franchisees has given us an opportunity to build on the success we had as independent pool service owners and take our business to new heights," said Carlos Davila, owner of Pinch A Penny of Pecan Grove. "The expertise of Pinch A Penny's corporate support team is unparalleled and made our transition from independent operator to franchisee seamless. By joining the brand, we were given access to best-in-class processes and products, enabling us to better serve the pool and spa needs of the community."
Since opening its first store in Texas in 2016, Pinch A Penny has continued to experience a surge in growth throughout the state, fueled by unprecedented demand for pool services and supplies. This demand is projected to continue to increase as families stay closer to home this summer, relaxing in their backyards and using their pools and spas. Recently named one of the top 50 recession-proof franchises by leading market research firm Franchise Business Review, Pinch A Penny continues to be recognized as the leader in its category, a position it has held for 45 years. By providing essential services through its proprietary retail products, pool cleanings and several other backyard services like renovations, leak detection and power washing, Pinch A Penny helps pool owners keep their pools properly maintained and fully operational to create the safest water environments possible.
"Carlos and Valeska are a great example of the potential that Pinch A Penny can provide experienced pool service operators looking for the benefits of a full pool business model, backed by 45 years of industry expertise and a longstanding reputation as the leading franchise in the swimming pool category," said Michael Arrowsmith, Chief Development Officer of Pinch A Penny. "While some of our franchisees have been owners of their own pool businesses before, we're proud to say that many are not, and that we provide all the training and resources needed in order for them to succeed. Our franchisees' success is paramount to us and has been key as we grow our footprint across Texas."
