Join America's Largest Retail Pool Supply & Service Franchise!

The Average Annual Sales of a Pinch A Penny Retail Store is over $1,000,000! In fact, taking into account all Retail Operations that have been in business for all of 2016, average annual sales are $1,183,228. While there is no assurance that your Pinch A Penny Retail Store will do as well as these retail stores, it’s safe to say that Pinch A Penny’s numbers speak for themselves.*

* As reported in our Franchise Disclosure Document dated May 1, 2017. Based on gross sales volume reported to us for year ending December 31, 2016, by 223 franchised PINCH A PENNY retail pool supply stores that were open the full year. Of those 223 Stores, 89 (39.91%) exceeded average store volume ($1,183,228) in sales and of the 223 Stores 199 (89.24%) also provided pool maintenance services. There is no assurance, however, that you will do as well.

After four decades of continued growth in Florida and the surrounding states, Pinch A Penny is bringing its pool care expertise and service to the growing markets of Mississippi, Louisiana & Texas. These markets, like Florida, have large populations of pool owners who will enjoy the benefits of the selection, expertise and service offered by a locally owned Pinch A Penny franchise. Combine the strong population growth in these states with a climate ideal for poolside living, and you have a strong potential for great returns on your investment. How do we know? Because we’ve done our homework. It’s also reassuring to consider that pools and spas need continual maintenance. So not only are these markets growing, but those pools and spas already in place provide a solid base for business.

Pinch A Penny is based upon a unique and proven concept – provide an extensive line of pool and spa care products and the expertise to use them wisely. We don’t just ring up purchases. Instead, we’re a source of advice many pool owners quickly come to rely on. Pinch A Penny franchises offer one of the most complete lines of pool chemicals, maintenance equipment, and parts & accessories available anywhere, which gives franchisees a competitive advantage. Combine this with the games, toys, floats, grills, above-ground pools and more that Pinch A Penny has available, and consumers have a one-stop resource for anything and everything they need for pools and spas. During warmer months, business increases dramatically and store owners must put in long days to properly service customers’ needs. As in any well-run retail business, you must also attend to the demands of ordering, stocking inventory, and housekeeping.

Remember when your parents told you to never swim alone? The same applies to our business.
We’re founded on the belief that only together can we achieve the kind of unparalleled success we’ve enjoyed to date. When you buy a Pinch A Penny store, you become a part of the family. We’ll support you in both opening your store, which includes sales training and merchandising, and giving you an in-depth knowledge of the technical aspects of the business.

We don’t just run you through the basics and leave you to learn on your own. You’ll be required to undergo up to four weeks of training on virtually every aspect of pool care. Only then can you confidently and thoroughly serve your customers. Plus, we offer on-going training opportunities for you and your associates.
Our primary training courses are conducted at the Pinch A Penny Corporate Headquarters in Clearwater, Florida, by some of the industry’s most knowledgeable experts. Our Training Coordinator is a Certified Pool Operator Instructor recognized by the National Swimming Pool Foundation and Certified Aquatic Facility Operators.
Your Training Coordinator will leave no stone unturned. After all, the more you know about what you sell and why you sell it, the more valuable your business will be – for both you and your customers. In fact, we’ve found the key to any franchisee’s success is the ability to develop a loyal customer base through extensive knowledge and customer service, which is unmatched by your competitors.

While referrals are important, we would never expect you to rely on just that or self promotion to make your franchise work its hardest. We have an entire staff of advertising professionals who create national-caliber, targeted advertising campaigns to promote the Pinch A Penny brand.
Our award-winning efforts have helped foster our “expert” reputation in the minds of our target audiences. And we have one of the most sophisticated pool owner databases to make sure we’re getting our message to the right people.

Most of what you’ll sell can be ordered through an affiliated central distribution facility in Clearwater, Florida. Stores receive deliveries on a regularly scheduled basis. Even in transit, we’re promoting the Pinch A Penny name through image advertising on our trucks that travel throughout the Southeast.
