CLEARWATER, Fla., April 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Pinch A Penny Pool Patio and Spa, the world's largest swimming pool retail, service, and repair franchise, announced today the opening of its newest franchised location in Thomasville, Georgia. Located at 1616 Smith Ave., the new store marks the brand's first location in the city, as it continues growing throughout the state and accelerating its momentum in the Southeast. The new Thomasville Pinch A Penny is owned and operated by husband-and-wife team Mike and Susan Ingram, who are new franchisees of the brand.
"My professional background is in finance, so needless to say swimming pools did not come second nature to me; however, in meeting with other franchisees, my wife and I discovered that we were not alone," said Mike Ingram, owner of Pinch A Penny of Thomasville. "Part of the reason Pinch A Penny has built such a great reputation over the past 40+ years is that it is trusted as an expert source, which can easily be applied to both customers and franchisees alike. The company has developed exceptional turnkey support and an ongoing training program that made us feel truly taken care of and confident in our new venture. Susan and I look forward to serving the Thomasville community and becoming their trusted experts."
Pinch A Penny's entry into Thomasville comes on the heels of a strong first quarter of the year for the company, where it opened three new stores in target markets throughout Texas and Florida, including the greater Houston and Daytona Beach areas. Amid this ongoing growth, the brand has continued to identify Georgia as a key state for its aggressive development plans, along with Texas, Louisiana, South Carolina and Florida.
"The Ingram's purchased a local independent pool store and then converted it into a Pinch A Penny, which reflects the endless options our brand offers for those looking to operate a successful business under a leading franchise concept," said Michael Arrowsmith, Chief Development Officer of Pinch A Penny. "Closing out the first quarter and going into the remainder of 2019, we're energized by the trajectory in which Pinch A Penny is moving, zeroing in on prime markets for our ongoing expansion and we're excited to be a part of these wonderful communities."
