We’ve all heard everything is bigger in Texas, and soon Pinch A Penny will have an even bigger footprint in the Lone Star State, too.
We went all in on Texas this past year, and it has been exciting to watch what happened. We opened a new Pinch A Penny location in Pecan Grove and have at least three more stores planned to open in early 2021 across the state. The best news is there are plenty of wide open spaces left, and so in 2021, we expect to open five to eight new Pinch A Penny locations in Texas.
“We have been so encouraged by how well-received Pinch A Penny locations have been in Texas,” says Adam Heflin, Director of Franchise Development. “We are excited to grow our brand and introduce even more Texas pool owners to Pinch A Penny’s complete line of pool equipment and accessories, pool service and backyard services, paired with our best-in-class customer service.”
Texas’s family-oriented culture is perfect for Pinch A Penny, Heflin says, because Pinch A Penny is a family-owned business, with franchise locations that are owned and operated by local families, that helps to ensure a safe water environment for family fun moments.
Want to know why Texas is such a tremendous growth market for us? This ain’t our first rodeo, and we know a thing or two about the swimming pool business in Texas:
- The first Pinch A Penny store in Texas opened in 2016 and demonstrated from the start that there was a huge demand for quality retail pool supply and service operators in the state. In fact, many of our Texas locations have outperformed comparable-sized locations in other markets.
- Texas is third among states for having the most in-ground residential pools, behind only California and Florida. The Houston and Dallas suburbs, especially, are pool-dense markets.
- In 2020, Texas – like the rest of the nation – saw a spike in the number of people who built pools because of the pandemic, which encouraged people to spend more time in their own backyards with their families. That means there are now even more Texas pool owners who need Pinch A Penny stores in their neighborhoods.
If you’re ready to take control of your future by investing in a proven business model in a booming market, we should talk! There’s no time like the present to start your own business, and there’s no better place to do it than in Texas.
Look for us at The Franchise Show in Dallas on May 15 and 16. We would love to talk with you about our big plans for Texas in 2021.
We know that 2020 was a challenging year for many, but for Pinch A Penny those challenges reinforced how sustainable our business model is, even during a pandemic and an economic downturn. We are extremely optimistic about what 2021 holds. Throughout our 45-plus-year history, we have logged more than 40 years of positive same-store growth, and we that success to continue in 2021.
We’re coming for you, Texas. In a big way.
