With Premier’s sophisticated internet marketing, their buying power and the supportive company culture, I am confident that we are now equipped with the tools that we need to not only compete, but dominate our markets.
Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) April 10, 2012
Premier Pools, one of the nation’s largest pool companies, is experiencing accelerated growth, adding fourteen new licensee locations in seven months. With a concentration of locations in the West Coast, Southwest, and Texas, Paul Porter, CEO of Premier Pools Management Corp., began traveling to the East Coast earlier this year to meet with local builders looking to expand their business by partnering with an industry leader. After careful consideration, Porter chose Bob Whitaker of Pools by Artesian in Doylestown, Pennsylvania and Kent Phillips of Peachtree Pools in North Augusta, South Carolina.
Traveling to Florida, Porter added two more licensees, Bob Mueller of Aqua Designs and Décor and Keith Payne of Keith Payne Pools, a forty year old family owned company in Daytona Beach. Payne, a well known and respected residential and commercial builder with over 40 years in the pool business, is already in the process of opening another location in St. Augustine, as Premier Pools. “I have enjoyed a successful career for many years but knew that I had to make some changes to secure a future for my children, who work in our family business”, said Payne. “With Premier’s sophisticated internet marketing, their buying power and the supportive company culture, I am confident that we are now equipped with the tools that we need to not only compete, but dominate our markets.”
Texas has proven to be one of the most successful areas of growth for Premier Pools. Bill Unger, owner of the Houston location and Premier’s first non-corporate licensee, has recently opened a location in San Antonio and Spring, Texas. With over $5 million in sales his first year, Unger is confident that he will have the same success in his new locations. “Premier had a proven business model and we just follow it. It’s more than building great pools and providing excellent customer service. It is how to strategically grow a business, how to recruit the right people, and most importantly, it’s the Premier story.”
Other expansion areas include the Midwest with two locations in Missouri and one in Chicago.
