Softub Express is one of the many sponsors who support this year’s Canandaigua Art and Music Festival. A seven-year sponsor of the annual event, Softub Express continues to show support for the area’s creativity and much-anticipated occasion. We conducted an interview with Softub Express President, Julie Pettis, and here is what she had to say about her company and their support for the Canandaigua Art and Music Festival.

Tell me a bit about your company. What products/services do you provide to the community?

Softub Express is a division of Pettis Pools & Patio, a 48-year-old family business based in Rochester, NY. In addition to being a full-service retailer of Softub portable hot tubs, Pettis Pools also sells in-ground and above-ground pools, hard-sided hot tubs, patio furniture, saunas, and accessories. We also offer field service on pools and spas.
