After working for other pool companies for many years, Paul Porter and Keith Harbeck decided that they would open their own business in 1988 and raise the bar for swimming pool construction. Understanding the importance of providing the ultimate experience for the families that entrusted them with their dream of pool ownership, they focused on one goal – to exceed their customers’ expectations and make them customers for life.
By 2010, with this philosophy growing their company to over 25,000 pools built, Paul Porter realized that it was time to share their successful business model and began offering licensing opportunities to smaller builders. Within four years, the Premier Pools & Spas organization grew to over 35 locations, four of which made the Pool & Spa News’ Top 50 Builder List in 2014.
This was an unprecedented accomplishment for businesses so young.* The overwhelming success of the licensing program led to a transition to a franchise model as Paul wanted to provide more structure, services, and a better exit strategy to his offerings.
We are the largest pool builders in the world by 3 times over for a very good reason. Our company culture is defined by the characteristics set out in principle by the men who founded this business in 1988. Their goal was to raise the bar for the swimming pool construction industry as a whole. Understanding the importance of providing the ultimate experience for the families that entrusted them with their dream of pool ownership, they focused on one goal – to exceed their customers’ expectations and make them customers for life .
Since 1988, Premier Pools & Spas has been leading the way and revolutionizing the swimming pool industry by bringing new technology to efficiently and profitably manage operations, as well as raising the bar in the quality of construction and a customer’s buying experience. Today, we are building on our history of innovation by offering other builders and savvy business people this unique franchise opportunity.

Why go with Premier Pools & Spas?
Premier Franchise Management does not ask for a large monetary investment for the substantial amount of benefits that we offer our franchisees. Certainly not in respect to other companies that may offer similar services. Components such as national name recognition, trademarks, training, systems and procedures, and the franchise rights to a business with the dramatic income and growth potential as Premier Pools & Spas has experienced are rare and unique, and they will become much more expensive in the future.
Premier Pools & Spas Dominates The Pool & Spas News Top Pool Builder Rankings
Since 2003, Pool & Spa News has published a Top 50 list that consists of the country’s largest swimming pool companies and the pool industry’s leaders and innovators. Since the list’s inception, Premier Pools & Spas has consistently held a position in their annual rankings, with multiple years in top ten positions and achieving the number one ranking in 2012. For the last two years, Premier Pools and Spas has been the only pool builder to have multiple locations place in the top 50 rankings. Our team of pool contractors in Sacramento, Houston, Dallas, Los Angeles and Temecula/Orange County, CA were honored as top 50 pool builders, with all but Sacramento being in business for less than five years.
