Southern Leisure Spas and Patio started as Pool Xpressions in March of 2013. Our initial goal was to provide a simple pool design center and retail setting for pool supplies, chemicals, and a few hot tubs. As we progressed through our first year in business, we found ourselves doing more hot tub and BBQ grill business and less pool design and supplies. After developing important relationships with some of the most respected names in the portable hot tub industry, Pool Xpressions rebranded and became Southern Leisure Spas and Patio in January of 2015.

Our Mission at Southern Leisure is to bring you, the customer, the most innovative and highest quality outdoor living products coupled with excellent customer service during and after the sale. At Southern Leisure, we take pride in partnering with the absolute best brands in the industry. All of our suppliers and manufacturers place a high importance on the quality and integrity of their products. We hope that you will find doing business with Southern Leisure to be a positive experience. For more detailed information on our team, check out the brief bios below.

Leadership Team

Cole T.
Vice President / Co-Founder

Hello, my name is Cole. I am the vice president and co-founder of Southern Leisure Spas & Patio. I come from a family of landscape and pool construction professionals. I learned to operate heavy equipment at a very young age and spent many hours on job sites laying pavers and digging holes throughout highschool and college. I have a bachelors degree in marketing from Harding University. After graduation, I spent some time in the corporate world before deciding to get back to my roots in the outdoor living industry. In 2013, with the help of my father, we made the leap into the retail business that is now Southern Leisure Spas & Patio.

I am extremely passionate about our products and understanding all aspects of how our products function. I spend the majority of my time running the marketing and finance side of the business but thoroughly enjoy getting my hands dirty out in the field with our service technicians. Outside of work I enjoy motocross, wakeboarding and spending time with my wife and our son. I believe we have a great team here at Southern Leisure and always welcome feedback from our customers.

Garrett L.
General Manager

Hello, my name is Garrett. I spent eight years of my life serving our country honorably in the U.S. Navy as a Military Police Officer. I am happily married to my beautiful wife Jody, and we are the proud parents of two beautiful girls. I am currently the General Manger for Southern Leisure Spas & Patio. I have been a part of this amazing and rapidly growing company since 2013. My basic viewpoint has always been that our customers are the most important guest at our locations, they are not reliant on us. We are reliant on them. All of the employees treat our customers, and each other, the way we as individuals, want to be treated. That means offering you quality products at fair prices with exceptional service. Our specially trained sales and service staff are available to answer any questions or concerns you may have before and after the sale. Unlike the big box stores, we will be there after you’ve made your purchase to help you get familiar with your new product and we will continue to be there as the years go by. At Southern Leisure we strive to establish lifelong customer relationships.

Colby S.
Store Manager

Hello, My name is Colby. I am the Flower Mound store manager, I have been with Southern Leisure since January of 2018. I have worked my way up the ranks through the spa industry, Starting as a Spa installer years ago! I have installed spas, serviced spas, and helped many customers find the perfect spas for them and their lifestyle. I think it's important to understand every aspect of purchasing a hot tub, from shopping for one, the delivery of your new spa, and the ease of maintaining your new spa. Sometimes buying a new spa may feel a bit overwhelming, let's be honest they all look alike, all have water, and a lot of jets! Tubs come in varying colors, prices, and brands. Every salesman you talk to has the “Best Brand” Well here at Southern Leisure spas we carry three of the “top tier brands” all three are manufactured here in the USA and we have spas to fit every budget and customer needs! So come by our Flower Mound location where we keep shopping for a spa simple, honest, and exciting!  

Preston J.
Store Manager

Hello, My name is Preston and I am the store manager for our Arlington location. I was born and raised in Graham, TX just west of possum kingdom lake.  I spent most of my summer days out on the lake with friends and family.  After a long day out on the boat or in the water, we would venture up to the house to the back patio and enjoy an evening around the grill.  I started to notice that most of the houses we visited or stayed at had a nice hot tub with decking around it and I always enjoyed relaxing and looking out over the night sky in a well lit hot tub.  Little did I know then, that I would be bringing that experience into my career in helping others build that environment for themselves and I get to play a key role is doing so.  My goal is to treat others with the upmost respect and integrity that was expected of myself since I can remember.  Being true and honest to others will build the right relationships with the right people.  The people I get to work with reflect that perfectly.  The team here at Southern Leisure Spas and Patio will work day in and day out to make sure you have the best hot tub experience that DFW can offer.
