Premier Pool Service Opens Austin Location

Premier Pool Service expanded its foothold in Texas with another new location. The franchise is a sister company to the world’s largest pool builder (Premier Pools & Spas), and offers full service cleaning packages as well as seasonal maintenance, repairs and upgrade options. The West Austin based branch will be owned and operated by pool industry veteran Ryan Johnson.
A former Zodiac rep, Johnson is no stranger to the pool business. He grew up immersed in the industry as his family has owned and operated a pool construction company for over 30 years. Johnson is passionate about clean swimming pools, the Texas Longhorns, and loves his four Labrador dogs, Charlie, Maddie, Paisley and Gracie Mae.
When asked why he wanted to open a Premier Pool Service location Johnson replied, “The big draw to owning a Premier Pool Service Franchise is the culture and the family dynamic. I was born and raised in Austin and have known and respected the Premier brand for decades, but I was sold on the fact that Premier offices are family owned and operated businesses.”
Charles Lauller, President of Premier Pool Service, thoroughly vetted Johnson and gave an enthusiastic endorsement. “Ryan’s knowledge of running a pool business, connections in the industry, commitment to customer satisfaction and entrepreneurial spirit make him the ideal Premier Pool Service Franchise owner. We are excited to watch him transform the Austin market!”

Premier Pools & Spas to Franchise Pool Service Company

Premier Pools & Spas, the world’s largest swimming pool builder, is beginning to franchise swimming pool service companies nationwide. Premier began as a Sacramento, CA pool construction company in 1988 and grew to dominate the local market.
In 2010, Paul Porter, CEO of Premier Franchise Management, brought the business outside of California and across the nation. Now serving over 50 markets across the country, Porter is looking to expand the brand once again and this time into the service and maintenance side of the industry.
The new franchise, Premier Pool Service, will cover all one’s pool service needs from maintenance and cleaning packages, to equipment diagnostics and repairs. In the areas where a Premier Pools and Spas construction location exists, it will serve as a warranty station for the sister company. Charles Lauller, the President of Premier Pool Service, will manage the company and train franchisees from his office in a suburb of Dallas. Lauller believes there is a latent demand for something like this in the industry. He elaborated on Premier’s unique experience saying, “We have the ability to take the last 7 years of learning the franchise business, and the last 3 decades of successfully growing companies in the construction business, and apply all of that to the Pool Service side.”
To date more than 60,000 people have trusted Premier to create the backyard of their dreams. With thousands of happy customers across the nation and incredible success in creating a scalable pool construction business, it is the logical progression. Lauller continued, “We’ve been so blessed to build tens of thousands of dream backyards across the US, but we’re only there for 8-12 weeks. We can finish ahead of time and under budget, but weeks later if they don’t have a great service company they can’t fully enjoy their pool. To best protect and maintain the investment all of those homeowners entrusted to us, we can now offer year-round service.”
Becoming a Premier Pool Service franchisee gives one access to the tools, training, systems, and support network needed to succeed in today’s rapidly changing business world. Franchisees are trained in processes, protocols and software. They also receive buying power from economies of scale along with marketing strategies that include online campaign management and lead generation.

Premier Pools & Spas Appears Multiple Times on HGTV’s New Show: “Ultimate Pools”

HGTV’s new hit series, “Ultimate Pools” ventures across America to show viewers the coolest backyard pools that money can buy. Two Premier Pools and Spas branch owners: Jeff Boyer of Temecula and Aaron Temme of San Diego had the opportunity to show the world four spectacular pools that their teams designed and built in the Temecula and San Diego areas.
The Kalani Pool is the ultimate lazy river party pool. The pool utilizes a forced current to propel swimmers around the shallow and slightly narrow winding river design at a relaxing speed. The owners of the Kalani Pool had 16 pool builders bid the project and half of them said that they were unable to do a project of that nature. It wasn’t a problem for Boyer. For those who crave some adventure and exercise, Boyer was able to build a swimming-hole portion, deep enough for a jump off of the waterfall shelf.
Boyer’s Great Grotto Pool is a large, tropical-themed pool that boasts features such as: a jump wall of boulders, fire bowls, two slides including one that ends 5 feet above the water and a gigantic hot tub that can accommodate 12 party-goers. The large pool holds 40,000 gallons of water and Boyer incorporated the existing hillside into the design by adding gorgeous steps and hidden seating areas flanked with fire bowls. A swim up bar serves as the icing on the cake for the full-scale social scene that the home owners had envisioned.
Boyer’s appearance on “Ultimate Pools” was a tremendous honor for him. Once a $500,000 a year pool builder, Boyer has blossomed into a $8 million dollar a year builder. With his innovative designs, top-notch team and tireless drive to ensure that customers see their dream backyards come to fruition, it’s not hard to see why he has seen massive success in such a short period of time.
Aaron Temme, owner of Premier Pools & Spas San Diego’s Playscape Pool was created for a homeowner who actually was not thrilled about the idea of building a pool in the first place, but his family was. Once the pool was built, the owner was able to see that the pool created the ability to spend more quality time as a family while doing something active. The backyard showpiece blends seamlessly with their home design by utilizing sharp lines and a modern design. The pool is unique in many ways but perhaps the most striking portion is that the hot tub is located in the middle of the pool. In order to get to the hot tub, one must either get wet or balance themselves on floating steps that lead to the baja shelf of the hot tub.
The Ingenuity Pool was designed with Temme by a dad who had an ulterior motive: he would rather have all of his kid’s friends come to his family’s home rather than vice versa. He came to the conclusion that they needed something to attract the crowd of kids. A pool with an outrageous wow-factor fit the bill. The design that Temme and the homeowner settled on was a theme-park style backyard environment that extended a half acre. In order to combat the topography issues Temme faced during the project, he built a wall in order to block the wind. The winds blow very heavy in that area and it can feel cold to emerge from the pool, even on a 100 degree day without the wind-blocking wall. The wall fortunately allowed the family to incorporate a slide, many water features and boulders that make the scenery extra theme-park like.
Temme’s appearance on “Ultimate Pools” was yet another achievement for him and his team. As an award-winning builder, considered by many to be one of the best builders in the country, he takes pride in his work and the ability to have it showcased to millions of people around the country was an exceptional opportunity.
