The world’s largest swimming pool builders expand their territory into Greenville, SC, and Fayetteville, AR.

Premier Pools and Spas, the world’s number one swimming pool builder, has recently expanded into Greenville, SC, and Fayetteville, AR.

Aaron Gurley, President of Premier Franchise Management, has selected Cassidy Mehlhaff & Brent Horsman as the new Premier franchise owners in Greenville, SC, and Todd & Allison Crane as the new Premier franchise owners in Fayetteville, AR.

Premier Pools & Spas franchises offer swimming pool construction and remodeling, including gunite, fiberglass, and vinyl inground pools. Premier’s tremendous growth has recently expanded its services to 32 states across the country.

“Our company culture is unlike any other as our franchisees are supportive of one another, share knowledge, and celebrate successes.”

Premier began offering franchise opportunities in 2014 to like-minded entrepreneurs with high standards for quality and value.

Cassidy Mehlhaff, whose father owns the Premier franchise in Vacaville, has worked for PPAS in many roles over the years, from marketing to design to sales. Before that, she spent ten years as a small business consultant for a Fortune 50 company. After playing professional ball for the San Diego Padres, Brent spent 20 years building a successful general contractor business based on 100% customer referrals.

Together they are excited to grow their presence and serve the community of Greenville, “While there may be other builders in our area, none even come close to having the resources and foundation of Premier. We are certain that we will continue to provide the value, quality, and integrity that this company was built on.”

Todd and Allison have both owned businesses before this new venture. Allison has owned and operated two brick-and-mortar boutiques that also had an eCommerce presence. Todd owned a construction business focused on residential properties and another company that offered specialized inspection services to residential owners and contractors. He has also worked in aviation as an aircraft engineer for almost 18 years.

Though they’ve built businesses from scratch before, they were looking for something new with a robust support system in place. Premier fit that bill while also providing an opportunity to build a family business as their legacy to pass on. Todd had this to say about joining the Premier family, “It is great to know that we are in the business of fun and helping people realize their dreams.”
