Big Star Backyards is a family-owned hot tub and swim spa retailer and servicer.

According to Sales Manager Chad Power, Big Star Backyards is slated to open in its San Marcos location at the start of the new year.

"Our goal is to open by Jan. 2," Power said.

Big Star Backyards will also be offering cold plunge tubs, saunas and massage chairs.

Power said the Austin location has been open since 2017, and plans are in place to expand into San Antonio after opening in San Marcos.
