Back in 1980, Ken began Paradise Pools and Spas as a construction based business in Vicksburg, MS. By 1981, the business had grown and he opened his first retail store. Recently he sold that first store and now, after overseeing the business for 27 years, has retired (part-time that is).
Owner and manager of the company, Tim started out in the business when he was only 17 years old. In 1985 he began to work with his father in the Vicksburg store. He worked and managed that location until 1999 when he moved to help with a second located in Jackson, MS and a third location in Flowood, MS. Since then both of these locations have moved to the current store located in Pearl, MS. The Vicksburg location was sold in 2007. These days Tim is living in Byram and overseeing all Paradise Pools and Spas operations.
Kari came to work for Paradise Pools in 2001. She brought with her several years of pool service and chemical knowledge. Working as a sales associate on the counter, Kari helped to organize, build and maintain the retail operations at the Jackson location until 2005. When the Jackson store moved to Pearl, MS in that year, she began to serve as assistant manager. Today Kari serves as Store Manager and oversees all retail and service operations.
Robbie became a part of Paradise Pools in 1997. He started out in construction but in time was moved to the service department. There he worked his way from service assistant to service tech to service manager. He managed all service operations until 2015. At that time he took over managing our construction department. He now oversees all construction operations. In addition, he continues to serve as our longest tenured service technician.
