Matt and Lexi heard about Premier Pools & Spas through a family connection. Matt and Lexi said that they chose to own a franchise because of the “amazing integrity and track record” that PPAS has. They loved that PPAS is a family owned business that has grown into what it is over the past 30 years. They are excited to see when a plan starts, and a dream is completed. The Burkett’s believe that the Premier brand speaks for itself and they plan to treat each project as if it were their own.
