Pinch A Penny franchises strive to be unrivaled in providing value, quality and service to our customers. Our concept is simple - provide customers with an extensive line of pool and spa care products and the expertise to use them wisely. With over 220 franchise locations, 40 years in the business and more certified pool experts than anyone else, it's no wonder more pool owners choose us.

* As reported in our Franchise Disclosure Document dated May 1, 2016. Based on gross sales volume reported to us for year ending December 31, 2015, by 219 franchised PINCH A PENNY retail pool supply stores that were open the full year. Of those 219 Stores, 110 (50%) exceeded $1,000,000 in sales and 181 also provided pool maintenance services. There is no assurance, however, that you will do as well.


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.

Here are some of the ways we're helping our franchisees maintain national brand recognition:
