Tiff’s Treats, the original warm cookie delivery company, is excited to celebrate the opening of their Kingwood, TX store with a special Grand Opening event with Houston Texans linebacker Whitney Mercilus. The celebration will take place on Saturday, February 23rd, 2019 from 9am to 1pm and will benefit The WithMerci Foundation, Mercilus’ non-profit organization that provides advocate services and support to families of children with disabilities and special needs. Mercilus will be at the event to sign autographs from 9am – 10am followed by a visit from Toro and the Texans Cheerleaders from 10am – 11am.
Located at 4529 Kingwood Drive, Suite 160, the new store will service the Northeast Houston suburb with Tiff’s Treats fresh, warm cookies. To celebrate opening day, the first 40 people in line at 9am will be given a $100 Tiff’s Treats gift card. All others in line at 9am will get a $10 gift card (must be 18 or older). As an opening day perk, customers will be able to purchase a dozen cookies for only $5, filled with one of Tiff’s Treats most irresistible flavors: chocolate chip, snickerdoodle or oatmeal raisin. No call-ahead orders will be taken and customers are limited to 6 boxes per person. Everyone who attends the opening day celebration will also have a chance to win free cookies for a year!
Customers are encouraged to bring a new unwrapped children’s book (ages 3-15) to donate to Easter Seals for use in their library. Everyone that contributes will get a $5 Tiff's Treats Gift Card.
“We are so excited to be opening a new store in Kingwood and to have Houston Texans, Whitney Mercilus there to celebrate with us,” said Tiffany Chen, co-founder of Tiff’s Treats. “We love the support of all of our Houston customers and are thrilled to be 10 stores strong in the Houston area!”
Tiff’s Treats will also be giving away prizes at the grand opening including gift cards donated from local area restaurants and shops, randomly inserted into boxes of cookies.

Pinch A Penny Pool Patio and Spa, the world's largest swimming pool retail, service, and repair franchise, announced today the opening of its newest franchised location in Kingwood, Texas, marking the brand's 16th location in the state and 12th in the greater Houston area. Located at 4522 Kingwood Dr., the new store is a retail conversion and operated by first-time franchisee Thomas Parison, who previously owned Texas Tom's Pool Supplies for more than a decade before converting that business into his new Pinch A Penny location.
"After spending more than 20 years in the pool industry as an independent business owner, I was looking for an opportunity to join an established brand that could provide the resources I needed to take my operations to the next level. When Pinch A Penny began expanding its footprint in Texas, I saw first-hand how well the brand resonated with residents in our communities and jumped at the opportunity to be a part of expanding its presence in Houston," said Thomas Parison, owner of Pinch A Penny Pool Patio and Spa of Kingwood. "The brand's unparalleled level of support allowed us to easily convert our retail space and offer our customers the superior level of service and best-in-class proprietary products that Pinch A Penny is known for."
Pinch A Penny has continued to target Texas as a prime market for expansion, and the opening of this new location is fueled by the tremendous success in franchise development the company experienced in 2018. On the heels of its latest opening in the Houston area, the brand is accelerating its growth plans for Texas in 2019, with additional new locations slated to open in the San Antonio and Dallas areas within the next three months. In addition to its aggressive expansion plans for the Lone Star State, the brand is also propelling its growth throughout the Southern U.S.
"Year after year, Pinch A Penny has achieved compounding success, and we've leveraged that momentum to drive the brand's expansion in prime regions like Texas. With our existing stores in the state performing exceedingly well, we're eager to catapult our presence even more in the region," said Michael Arrowsmith, Chief Development Officer of Pinch A Penny Pool Patio and Spa. "The Kingwood store opening showcases our capabilities to make the conversion process seamless and efficient, which saves our franchisees time and money and positions them for success."
Pinch A Penny Pool Patio and Spa of Kingwood will serve customers Monday-Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
