When you think about the swimming pool industry, you might immediately assume it's a seasonal business. At Pinch A Penny, however, we're committed to providing our franchisees and their customers with valuable service all year round! Our stores offer a variety of products and services that help keep them busy throughout the year taking care of customers.
Pinch A Penny stores are, at their core, brick-and-mortar retail locations. We specialize in providing pool and spa products, including our own personal chemical line called Suncoast Chemicals, maintenance items, equipment, parts, and more. Additionally, our stores offer a free 7-point water test for your pool and spa water, helping you keep your water properly balanced and sanitary.
In addition to in-store services, such as retail sales and water testing, our Pinch A Penny stores also provide pool service and maintenance. These services help homeowners maintain a clean and balanced pool with less effort. Along with weekly water balancing, pool service may include brushing, vacuuming, filter cleaning, and other routine services.
One of the advantages of franchising with Pinch A Penny is the array of backyard services our franchisees can offer. These services ensure that our franchisees stay busy throughout the year. Along with retail sales and pool service, our franchisees also provide services such as pool renovations, leak detection and repair, pressure washing, home landscape lighting and design, outdoor living design, and screen repair and rescreening services. This allows our franchisees to serve customers even if they don't have a pool!
When it comes to repairing and installing pool equipment, Pinch A Penny franchisees receive comprehensive training. Our franchise training program includes earning a certified pool operator license, which is a globally recognized certification. Franchisees also earn an advanced pool and spa service certificate, enabling them to obtain a contractor's license in just one year instead of the usual four years. Our training program includes hands-on experience at our Pinch A Penny campus in Clearwater, where franchisees learn how to test water, fix pool issues, clean pools properly, and more. They also learn about the mechanics of swimming pools and spas, including how to install and repair pool pumps, heaters, and other equipment.
Becoming a Pinch A Penny franchisee offers the freedom of being your own boss while providing year-round opportunities to earn income. If you're ready to transition from the corporate world to business ownership, we have franchise opportunities available throughout the southeast and Texas.
