Why Pinch A Penny? Experience The Difference


Is The Market Growing?

After four decades of continued growth in Florida and the surrounding states, Pinch A Penny is bringing its pool care expertise and service to the growing markets of Mississippi, Louisiana & Houston, Texas. These markets, like Florida, have large populations of pool owners who will enjoy the benefits of the selection, expertise and service offered by a locally owned Pinch A Penny franchise. Combine the strong population growth in these states with a climate ideal for poolside living, and you have a strong potential for great returns on your investment.

How do we know? Because we've done our homework. It's also reassuring to consider that pools and spas need continual maintenance. So not only are these markets growing, but those pools and spas already in place provide a solid base for business.

Do Consumers Like Shopping At Pinch A Penny?

Pinch A Penny is based upon a unique and proven concept - provide an extensive line of pool and spa care products and the expertise to use them wisely. We don't just ring up purchases. Instead, we're a source of advice many pool owners quickly come to rely on.

Pinch A Penny franchises offer one of the most complete lines of pool chemicals, maintenance equipment, and parts & accessories available anywhere, which gives franchisees a competitive advantage. Combine this with games, toys, floats, grills, above-ground pools and more that Pinch A Penny has available, and consumers have a one-stop resource for anything and everything they need for pools and spas.

During warmer months, business increases dramatically and store owners must put in long days to properly service customers' needs. As in any well-run retail business, you must also attend to the demands of ordering, stocking inventory, and housekeeping.

An Education In Success

We don't just run you through the basics, and leave you to learn on your own. You'll be required to undergo up to four weeks of training on virtually every aspect of pool care. Only then can you confidently and thoroughly serve your customers. Plus, we offer on-going training opportunities for you and your associates.

Our primary training courses are conducted at the Pinch A Penny Corporate Headquarters in Clearwater, Florida, by some of the industry's most knowledgeable experts. Our Training Coordinator is a Certified Pool Operator Instructor recognized by the National Swimming Pool Foundation, and Certified Aquatic Facility Operators.

Your Training Coordinator will leave no stone unturned. After all, the more you know about what you sell and why you sell it, the more valuable your business will be - for both you and your customers. In fact, we've found the key to any franchisee's success is the ability to develop a loyal customer base through such extensive knowledge and customer service, which is unmatched by your competitors.


Marketing & Advertising Designed To Get Results

While referrals are important, we would never expect you to rely on just that or self promotion to make your franchise work its hardest. We have an entire staff of advertising professionals who create national-caliber, targeted advertising campaigns to promote the Pinch A Penny brand.

Our award-winning efforts have helped foster our "expert" reputation in the minds of our target audiences. And we have one of the most sophisticated pool owner databases to make sure we're getting our message to the right people.


Where Do I Get My Merchandise From?

Even in transit, we're promoting the Pinch A Penny name through image advertising on our trucks that travel throughout the Southeast.
