Bruce an Joy Rothschild have operated their family-owned business since 1993. Customer service before, during, and long after a spa purchase has been a cornerstone of their business. “Our customers come in to visit us for months, or even years, after a spa purchase to tell us how much they continue to use and enjoy their spas. Says Bruce. Joy adds, “A lot of our customers have given us wonderful feedback about, not only the great health benefits but also the improved quality of time with family.”
Hot Spring Spas of Central Florida has received many industry recognition awards in their ten years of business in Central Florida. Most Prestigious among them, Hot Spring Spas of Brevard was recently recognized as an “Aqua 100 Dealer” for their fourth year in a row. Being named to the Aqua 100 is one of the highest honors that a pool and spa business can receive. They are again, the only pool and spa dealer to receive this honor in the state of Florida.
The Rest Of The Story…
Bruce Rothschild started in the spa industry in 1984, working for his cousin’s Jeff Claypool and Craig Inouye at Lifestyle Spas in Northridge, California. His duties included the delivery and setup of portable spas (Hot Spring Spas, Jacuzzi Spas and Cal Spas) and the installation of in-ground spas and wooden hot tubs. Bruce soon graduated to inside sales, and within a few months was promoted to sales manager. He spent over seven years with Lifestyle Spas until he went to work for Softub Inc.
Bruce became the international sales trainer for Softub Inc. and after starting from scratch designed and implemented a 3-day training seminar for all new and existing Softub dealers worldwide. He successfully trained over 2000 dealers and their staff from around the world. Bruce started a traveling road show for the dealer network and he traveled over 39 states and 6 countries, meeting with owners and their sales staff and training them.. Bruce also helped with the design and location of their showrooms and show booths.
In 1993, Bruce and Dean Kleinrath (former service manger and part owner of Lifestyle Spas) opened up a Hot Spring Spas of Melbourne, Florida in October of that year. This 6,000 sq. ft. showroom and warehouse was on New Haven Ave. The first year of business saw them double the sales of the previous owners and earned Bruce and Dean the award “Best New Dealer” from Watkins Mfg, the maker of Hot Spring Portable Spas.
Joy Rothschild soon joined Bruce and Dean to expand their dealership with their showroom in the beautiful Indian River Mall in Vero Beach. Besides raising their two children, Joy also handles all the day-to-day operations at both showrooms, and manages the Indian River Mall store. Dean retired in 1999 and is enjoying a lifestyle that would make both the Crocodile Hunter and Jeff Corwin jealous!
Joy and Bruce found a fantastic new location in 2002 and moved in immediately into their new Superstore. They are finally able to bring to the Space Coast an incredible sized showroom to show off the complete line of portable spas. They now have on display the entire line of Signature Spas, Tropic Spa and Signature Bath. Joy and Bruce are only one of 8 dealers in the world to carry this complete line of incredible spas.
