Premier Pools & Spas (PPAS), the No. 1 and fastest-growing pool builder in the world, has branched out into Chico, CA.

Aaron Gurley, president of Premier Franchise Management, has selected Becca and Cameron Rappleye and Sean and Chris Stevenson as co-owners in becoming Chico’s PPAS swimming pool builders.

Premier Pools & Spas has offered franchising opportunities since 2014, onboarding entrepreneurs who share a common goal of providing world-class customer service and quality pools.

Premier Pools & Spas franchisees play a significant role in the sale, design, construction, and remodel of in-ground swimming pools. The types of projects each franchise engages in vary (gunite/shotcrete, fiberglass, vinyl, etc.), as the decision is based on their market and interests.

Today, Premier is proud to offer its pool building services in 32 states throughout the United States. With a total of 80 build franchises, Premier Pools & Spas continues to be the #1 pool franchise in the nation.                    

Chico, CA | Owners: Cameron and Becca Rappleye and Sean and Chris Stevenson

The Rappleye Family

Cameron and Becca Rappleye were born and raised in Northern California. They both graduated from Sacramento State and got married in August of 2020. Cameron played professional golf and currently works in the business insurance field. Cameron has no prior experience in the pool industry but understands what it takes to run a successful business. His family flooring company has been at work in Sacramento, CA since 1950, and has been a great example for Cameron to follow. Becca’s connection to Premier is nothing new as she works at Premier Franchise Management headquarters as a marketing coordinator. She is the daughter of her co-owners, Sean and Chris.

They decided to own a Premier Pools & Spas franchise because of their passion and desire to create designs that will provide life-long memories for their customers. Cameron says their fast and professional manner is their advantage over others in their market. They are excited to make their mark with Premier and are looking forward to seeing how much of an impact they can make.

The Stevenson Family

Sean and Chris were born and raised in Northern California and have been married for 30 years. Sean was in the U.S. Air Force while Chris raised their 3 kids. They may be new to Premier Pools & Spas, but Sean's work history has prepared him for the responsibilities that lie ahead. Sean has been in the construction field for 35+ years and has prior pool experience, having helped other pool builders with concrete decks. They were first introduced to Premier by Becca, who paved the way for their interest in the company.

The couple is excited to work alongside family and has said customer satisfaction is their favorite part of the business. “We look forward to seeing the looks on their faces when they see the pool that we worked hard to build for them and the memories they will make,” Sean said. They are proud to be a Premier Pools & Spas franchise and say the reputation of the company is proof Premier is the best in the business.
