Pool owners have a wide variety of pool service companies to choose from - especially in locations in the South, where the year round climate is ideal for spending time outdoors. In these locations, our pool service franchise competitors fall into two primary categories: corporate-owned national chains and small mom-and-pop shops.
At Pinch A Penny, we have strong advantages that allow us to provide better expertise and customer service than major corporate-owned chains, and provide more comprehensive products and services than the competition.
Because our stores are owner-operated, our franchisees spend much of their time in their stores engaging with customers and participating in their local communities. This allows us to make stronger inroads with our local communities and customer base than corporate owned chains, since our franchisees are living and working in their local communities.
Combine that local touch with the added benefit of being part of the largest network of pool supply retail inventory in the country, and our franchise owners are able to offer the same level of customer service that mom-and-pop shops offer, but a much wider variety of products and services to help our customers.
