WITH PINCH A PENNY?
IT’S A GREAT BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY
RIGHT IN YOUR BACKYARD
RELY ON OUR INDUSTRY EXPERIENCE AND EXPERTISE
You don’t need to be a pool and spa expert in order to franchise with us—in fact you don’t even need to know how to swim. We provide all the training and tools you need to succeed.
45+ YEARS OF A PROVEN BUSINESS MODEL
As the nation’s largest swimming pool retail, service, and repair franchise, we’ve developed a dominant presence in a booming backyard-focused industry that’s led to strong average unit sales of more than $1.3 million*.
ENDLESS REVENUE OPPORTUNITIES
There are multiple revenue streams from retail, pool cleaning, and several backyard services for our franchises year-round. When the temps drop, cleaning service and hot tub needs rise. And whatever the weather, the do-it-yourselfers are routinely coming in-store for additional expertise and new products.
A CONSTANT STREAM OF LOYAL CUSTOMERS
Owning a pool or spa requires regular treatment and maintenance. Our expert advice and services, such as routine water testing, coupled with our huge selection of proprietary and specialized products, attract customers and keep them coming back.
FAMILY-CENTRIC VALUES WITH UNPARALLELED SUPPORT
We take a family approach to our business and that includes how we treat our Franchise Owners. You can be confident you will have all the necessary resources to carry on our tradition of quality, reliability and expertise in a fun, family-oriented atmosphere.
BE A POOL EXPERT BEFORE YOU KNOW IT
Ongoing training is always in place for Franchise Owners and their employees, but prior to a store opening, our Franchise Owners complete an in-depth phase of education that takes place in our classroom, online, from the backyard, and in the store, and results in:
- Pool & Spa Operator (CPO®) Certification** — the world’s leading verifiable pool and spa training credential
- Advanced Service Technician (AST®) Certification
- A diploma from the exclusive Pinch A Penny ‘Pool School of Graduates.’
*For the year ending December 31, 2019, Pinch A Penny had 253 stores open. Of those stores, 248 have been open at least one year.

Hear why Franchise Owner Mike Stevens credits the unparalleled corporate support to his success.
“One thing that I love about Pinch A Penny is we have ultimate access to anyone in the organization. Recently I had a situation where I needed to contact the chief operating officer, I sent him an email at 7 AM expecting a phone call back within 24 hours. I actually got a phone call back within 5 minutes from him on his cell phone in his car letting me know that anything that I needed it was at my disposal. The support that I get from Pinch A Penny is unparalleled. We have access to any executive at any time and they’re very friendly, they come to your store, they’ll do whatever they can to help you out.”
It’s support and tools like these that make our top 10% ranking amongst the most satisfied franchise owners no surprise.
