2010 Vermont Retailer of the Year

Allen Pools & Spas receives 2010 Vermont Retailer of the Year! This award honors a Vermont retailer for overall excellence. Recipients are judged using the following criteria: Growth and stability, innovation, best management practices, community involvement,and other appropriate factors.

Excellence and growth go hand in hand, and no better proof exists than

this year’s ROY winner. Allen Pools and Spas have grown steadily for more

than a half-century, even posting a 20% growth in 2009, one of the

toughest economic years in memory. What’s more, in 2010 they added 20%

growth onto that!

Dan Allen, Sr. started the company in his Rutland home in 1957. Today, it has 33

employees in three thriving stores. Allen Pools and Spas is not only growing and

prosperous–it is truly a “corporation with a conscience.” Its primary products–HotSpring

Portable Spas–are silent, use little documented electricity, and are virtually chemical

free. The company also launched its “A.T.P.” program in 2010, providing free removal

and environmentally friendly disposal of old spas, along with charitable donations with

proceeds from salvaged spas.

In 2010, Allen Pools and Spas received the highest honor from the world’s leading

manufacturer of spas, HotSpring Spas. The award citation read, in part, “Their

determination, dedication, loyalty, and passion for customer satisfaction

never falters. They excel in every way.”

That says it all about Allen Pools and Spas. Tom Colman, sales manager, summarizes

Mr. Allen’s 53 year success story like this: “Ed Allen has never thrown any idea under

the bus. He is the Ben Franklin of the modern business world!”
