Pinch A Penny Pool Patio and Spa Continues Texas Expansion with Opening of First Plano Location

April 16, 2019

Pinch A Penny Pool Patio and Spa has announced the opening of its first Plano, Texas location. Located at 7200 Independence Parkway Suite #244, the leading franchise concept's new store marks its third Dallas-Fort Worth area location and 18th in the state, and is fueled by the brand's ongoing growth efforts in Texas. The Plano Pinch A Penny will be owned and operated by first-time franchisee Lisa Ifland, who joins Pinch A Penny after spending nearly two decades in the foodservice industry.

"After researching countless potential franchise options, Pinch A Penny's family-oriented approach to business aligned most with my own core values, and the brand's consistent success throughout its rich company history made it the obvious choice," said Lisa Ifland, owner of Pinch A Penny of Plano. "I spent decades in the foodservice industry, a segment that is oversaturated with franchising opportunities, so I know firsthand how important it is to select a concept that has a proven business model. I have no doubt that Pinch A Penny's comprehensive training programs and unparalleled corporate support will provide me with the necessary tools to build a successful business and bring quality service to my community."

After seeing tremendous development success in 2018, Pinch A Penny has accelerated its growth strategy for the Southeast and Texas in particular, with the greater Dallas-Fort Worth area continuing to be a prime target market. The company's latest opening in Plano is the third new store to open in Texas this year, and its strong pipeline positions the brand to continue pushing its footprint further in Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio over the next several years. To further fuel the brand's growth strategy, Pinch A Penny will be exhibiting at the 2019 Houston Franchise Show on May 18, meeting with potential franchisees and fortifying relationships in the area.

"With our existing locations in Texas continuing to exceed expectations, the opening of our newest store in Plano is a direct reflection of the momentum we've continued to build in the Lone Star State, and we know we're just getting started," said Michael Arrowsmith, Chief Development Officer of Pinch A Penny Pool Patio and Spa. "Lisa and her husband, Tim, share our passion for operating a business with family-focused values, and they're the perfect partners to bring Pinch A Penny's signature high-quality retail experience to the Plano community. We look forward to continuing to connect with entrepreneurs and prospective franchisees looking to be a part of our brand's exciting expansion in the state of Texas."

Pinch A Penny Pool Patio and Spa of Plano will serve customers Monday-Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information on the new Plano store, call 469-815-8385 or visit
