Pinch A Penny announced today that it awarded Chip and Susan Campbell, two of the company’s leading franchisees, with its 2019 Founder’s Award. The prestigious award recognizes outstanding franchisees that embody Pinch A Penny’s family values and commitment to providing unparalleled value, quality and service, and was presented to the Campbells at the brand’s recent annual franchisee expo in Orlando, Florida.
The Campbells began their journey with Pinch A Penny 20 years ago when they acquired their first store in Tampa. Since that time, they have successfully transformed three underperforming stores into some of the most successful and highest volume locations in Pinch A Penny’s system. The husband-and-wife team currently own and operate two stores in Lakeland and Sarasota, Florida, which they acquired in 2011 and 2014, respectively.
“Chip and Susan’s work ethic, investment in their employees’ development, and willingness to help their fellow franchisees grow is the embodiment of what the Founder’s Award stands for,” said John Thomas, president and CEO of Pinch A Penny Pool Patio and Spa. “We view our franchisees as our extended family and strive to provide them with an unparalleled support system. Chip and Susan’s accomplishments are a true testament to the unlimited potential for success that being a part of Pinch A Penny offers, and we’re proud to present them with this well-deserved recognition.”
Pinch A Penny has been hosting its annual expo for more than 30 years and this year’s event was attended by 99 percent of its system. Each year, the expo brings together Pinch A Penny’s 250+ franchise owners, along with their families and teams. Throughout the three-day event, the company hosts numerous educational seminars and networking events, as well as a Recognition of Excellence dinner in which it awards top-performing franchisees for sales in various categories, including its Founder’s Award. The three days culminate in a daylong tradeshow with vendors showcasing products, tools, and services in the swimming pool, retail and service industries.
Pinch A Penny is currently seeking qualified candidates to join its growing brand, including existing pool operators looking to take their businesses to the next level. The company currently has franchise opportunities available in markets throughout Texas and the Southeastern U.S., including Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi.
