Largest pool supply franchise named to two recent lists by top franchise publication

Pinch A Penny Pool Patio and Spa, the nation's largest swimming pool retail, service, and repair franchise, has recently been named by Franchise Business Review as one of the Most Profitable Franchises and also one of the Most Innovative Franchises.

Pinch A Penny is the top pool supply store in the country, providing customers with best-in-class pool chemicals, equipment, repair parts, and accessories. In addition to pool supply retail, Pinch A Penny offers ongoing maintenance and repair services, like water testing and pool service, as well as pool renovations, pressure washing, landscape lighting, and more.

"Franchise Business Review does a great job of giving prospective franchisees the tools and research they need when choosing a franchise," said Pinch A Penny CEO, Jim Eisch. "It’s a huge honor to be named among the top franchises for profitability and innovation - two areas where the Pinch A Penny franchise system has a proven track record of success."

Independent research firm, Franchise Business Review, surveyed more than 30,000 franchise owners across more than 300 brands to gauge their overall satisfaction. To determine the results for the Most Profitable Franchises, owners answered 33 benchmark questions about their experience in critical areas of their franchise systems, including training and support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, and financial opportunity.

To create the 100 Most Innovative Franchises list, Franchise Business Review asked owners how creative and innovative they think their corporate franchise team is, and if their leadership has a clearly defined vision for where the brand is headed. From that research, FBR selected franchise companies with the highest combined scores in innovation, leadership, and overall satisfaction.

Franchise Business Review's most innovative businesses are ranked by prioritizing innovation with services or processes that help sustain long-term growth. FBR took both profit margins and owner satisfaction into consideration to rank the most profitable franchises.

"I have been with Pinch A Penny for six years, and it has been a very profitable and successful business venture for me and my family," said Per Sorensen, a Pinch A Penny franchise owner in Jacksonville, Florida. "The franchise provides its owners with marketing programs, name recognition to attract customers, and a complete line of in-store and online pool products and equipment. We can also offer premium pool maintenance, repair, and other backyard services in markets with high demand."

With nearly 270 locations across the Southeastern U.S. and Texas, Pinch A Penny has developed a reputation for delivering top-notch customer service and expertise in pool care while offering the highest quality products and supplies. Additionally, the growing franchise is continuing its expansion both east and west – and currently looking for new franchisees in Texas and the Carolinas.
