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.”

Paul Porter 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!”

The selection to become a Premier Pools and Spas or Premier Pool Service franchisee consists of a comprehensive background check, several inquiries to local vendors and distributors, and previous customer and personal references.
