America's Swimming Pool Company Records Its 100th Franchise Owner
Monday, April 23rd, 2018
ASP – Americas Swimming Pool Company, announced they had reached a milestone that most franchisors never attain. ASP awarded franchise rights to their 100th franchise owner and 257th franchise territory. Reaching the 100 franchise owner milestone is an attribute obtained by less than 19% of franchise organizations in the United States.
ASP is an award-winning and nationally recognized swimming pool maintenance, repair, and renovation franchise. The ASP pool professionals manage over 400 million gallons of water weekly in 20 states across the nation. They offer everything needed to maintain, protect, and enjoy swimming pool ownership. ASP has been a growing franchise brand for the past 11 years, and the organization looks forward to its continual and rapid growth in the coming years.
“Hitting the 100th franchise owner mark is a significant milestone and huge achievement for our company,” said Stewart C. Vernon, Founder and CEO of America’s Swimming Pool Company. “The franchise development team at corporate does a great job with getting new owners interested in our unique franchise model, but the best reason why so many new franchise prospects join ASP are the validation calls with our current owners. This means a lot and helps us know that we are doing things right.”
A typical ASP franchise owner is looking to get out of the corporate work environment and invest in an opportunity to build something for themselves. They are leaders, who want the freedom that comes with small business ownership without having to risk the uncertainty of the unknown. To be successful, they don’t need experience in the pool industry, but they possess two essential qualities – strong work ethic and attention to detail.
“Right now, is an exciting time to be a part of the ASP family,” said Jef Flournoy, Vice President of Franchise Sales and Development for America’s Swimming Pool Company. “In the past year, we announced our highest ranking of #101 by Entrepreneur Franchise 500, was awarded a Top 10 Best Franchise for Veterans by Military Times and received national recognition by top-tier publications such as SUCCESS magazine and The Huffington Post. We will continue to expand our reach and achieve new milestones.”
ASP’s thriving franchise organization can be attributed to Vernon’s concentration on overall franchisee growth. This is what has helped him turn a one-man company into the first successful pool maintenance franchise in the United States.
“Our team is dedicated to giving franchisees the support they need to be successful on an individual level and keep the focus on their success,” said Vernon. “This franchisee focused mindset is how we have managed to grow the brand while keeping our franchise owners profitable and happy.”
There is still plenty more space to grow! ASP’s low startup costs and recurring revenue model makes business ownership easy. Franchise ownership opportunities are available in most states. Visit aspfranchising.com/available-territories to find an available market in your area.
