ASP Pool Service Business Announces Award Winners at Annual Owners Meeting Franchises recognized for their hard work and commitment to customer service

MACON, Georgia– ASP – America’s Swimming Pool Company, held its annual pool service business owners meeting at which many franchise locations were honored by their franchisor for their hard work and commitment to customer service. In the past, the only award presented at this meeting was to the Franchisee of the Year, however, this year the company also presented many sales awards to recognize the achievements of the best performing franchises.

“ASP celebrated its 10th year of franchising in 2015, and has experienced faster growth than I ever imagined,” said Stewart Vernon, Founder & Chief Executive Officer of ASP. “Most of the franchisees in attendance at our owners meeting are no longer running a start up business, but have turned their pool company into growing organizations. Twenty-six ASP franchises are running organizations ranging in size from $500K-$2.7MM. These organizations deserve to be recognized for their hard work and drive to succeed.”

Along with the Franchisee of the Year award given in years past, this year’s meeting introduced three new sales clubs, designed to honor those franchises with the highest sales. The President’s Club consists of franchises who exceeded $500,000 in sales and was awarded to nine franchises including: Atlanta, GA; Augusta, GA; Chandler, AZ; Charleston, SC; Glynn County, GA; Gulfport, MS; Mobile, AL; Nashville, TN; and Shreveport, LA.

The Chairman’s Club was awarded to franchises who exceeded $750,000 in sales and was awarded to four franchises including: Athens, GA; Edmond, OK; Macon, GA; and Mesa, AZ.

The Founder’s Club awards those franchises that exceeded $1,000,000 in sales in 2015 and was given to: Chattanooga, TN; Columbus, GA; Dallas, TX; Destin, FL; and Ocala, FL.

Other awards given at the ceremony were:

  • Employee of the Year: Silas Partain, General Manager of the Mesa, AZ franchise
  • Top Sales Award: Dallas, TX franchise
  • Best Start Award: Virginia Beach, VA
  • Franchisee of the Year: Marcus Kuja, Owner of Savannah and Glynn County, GA franchises

During the course of the meeting, Vernon also introduced the company theme for 2016 as “Leaders…Leading the Pool Industry.” ASP has long been known for its leadership abilities. When founded in 2001, the company was built on the belief that if they provided a higher quality pool service at an affordable price, they would be able to compete in the pool service business. This belief proved true, and the company experienced explosive growth within a few years of starting. By 2005, franchise opportunities were being offered, and the company has now expanded to over 180 territories nationwide and is known as the #1 Swimming Pool Company in America. ASP has also been named among the best franchise opportunities in America by both Entrepreneur Magazine and Inc. 500.

Growing the Brand with Nationwide Expansion

ASP Owners Meeting 2015

ASP- America’s Swimming Pool Company continues their nationwide expansion, with their farthest expansion reaching into California. ASP is the largest and most recognized swimming pool maintenance and repair company.

“Our recent expansion into the state of California is one of the largest milestones for our company since inception” says Stewart C. Vernon, Founder and CEO of ASP. “As our brand has grown over the years, so has our ability to reinvest back in to our systems and processes, allowing our new franchise owners access to a system that is unmatched in our industry.”

In April 2016 new franchise owners from Fresno, CA, Chatsworth, CA, Galveston, TX, and Raleigh, NC visited the ASP Franchising headquarters in Macon, GA, for Pool School. ASP’s Pool School is a 12-day, hands-on franchise training program to help new owners successfully start their business. While at Pool School, franchise owners learned about every aspect of their business from technical support to marketing and bookkeeping.

“After over 30 years of owning my own pool business, I converted to ASP because I liked the idea of being in a business that offers more backing and support,” said Jack Carter, Owner of ASP Fresno and ASP Chatsworth.

ASP is a nationally recognized brand that reaches 205 franchise locations in 21 different states. Both California locations in Fresno and Chatsworth converted from All Pure Pool Service of Central CA to America’s Swimming Pool Company. ASP’s franchise owners enjoy having a support system that is committed to the success of their business.
