Pinch A Penny Pool Patio Spa Kicks Off 45th Year with Opening of New Florida Location in North Englewood
Posted on February 11th, 2020
Pinch A Penny Pool Patio and Spa, announced today the opening of its newest franchised location in North Englewood, Florida. Located at 1865 Englewood Road, the new store is owned and operated by Lee and Pam Poore and marks the brand’s second Englewood-area location, 230th overall in Florida. Pinch A Penny’s accelerated development throughout the state comes on the heels of a successful 2019 where the brand achieved yet another year of positive growth.
“When we learned about Pinch A Penny from an existing owner, we immediately loved what we heard and knew it was something we wanted to be a part of. Coming from backgrounds unrelated to pools or pool service, we were relieved to find that many of the brand’s most successful franchisees don’t have those types of backgrounds either and that Pinch A Penny had best-in-class training that would provide us with the tools we needed in order to be successful in the business,” said Lee Poore, owner of Pinch A Penny of North Englewood. “We’re so excited to begin our next chapter with a company like Pinch A Penny that encourages community involvement and we look forward to what’s to come.”
Now in its 45th year of business, Pinch A Penny continues to be a swimming pool franchise category leader and is the only brand to provide franchisees with three viable revenue streams, which has translated to more than 40 years of positive growth and a industry-high AUV of $1.2 million. The brand’s growth in the greater Englewood area reflects its aggressive franchise development efforts throughout Florida and other states in the Southeast, as well as the state of Texas.
“Two common threads that all our franchisees share is a desire to provide an exceptional customer experience and a passion for their local communities. Lee and Pam having diverse backgrounds in the fishing charter business and bookkeeping respectively shows how Pinch A Penny can be a fit for anyone who shares our brand’s family- and community-centric values,” said Michael Arrowsmith, Chief Development Officer of Pinch A Penny. “Pinch A Penny’s need-based business model is an attractive investment opportunity for those looking to enter the next phase of their lives, and can be substantiated by the various industry accolades we received in 2019 and early this year, including ranking #150 on Entrepreneur’s 2020 Franchise 500, as well as being named a best franchise for women and vets by Franchise Business Review.”
