Pods Swimming's Susan Pascale-Frechette, owner and founder of Pods Swimming, was seeking a location to build the company's brand new, state-of-the-art private swim school and training facility. The pool facility needed to be in a location that was convenient to students from all over the region. East Providence was viewed by Susan as the perfect location to attract students from a wide geographical area. In addition, the City worked with Susan to provide a low interest commercial loan that helped make her dream a reality. Pods Swimming is a unique and dynamic business model and the City is delighted to welcome them to our community.
