About ASP CEO & Founder Stewart Vernon
Founder Stewart Vernon is in charge of day-to-day operations of the franchise company, which includes duties such as brand management, vendor relationships, public relations, financial planning, and strategic oversight of his staff members. In addition, Vernon also serves as the CFO of the pool company.
Growing up and graduating college in Georgia, Vernon was looking for an easy business opportunity to enter – one with low capital and low overhead. Through extensive research, he stumbled upon the swimming pool industry and began a local pool company in Macon in 2002.
From cleaning and repair pools, one customer at a time, Vernon looked for ways to expand both the business model and the ASP brand. Eventually, ASP Franchising, Inc. was formed in 2005 and quickly started to fill a void in the swimming pool service sector. The foundation of the model for franchise expansion is partnering with business-minded people who wanted to start their own venture and require a business road map to follow.
Today, ASP is a leader in the swimming pool industry, while also propelling in the ranks of the national franchise limelight. The success of the swimming pool company has been recognized by its inclusion in Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top 500 Franchise List.
