ASP Ranked as Top Franchise for Veterans by Entrepreneur Magazine

top franchise for veterans 2017

ASP – America’s Swimming Pool Company is excited to announce its inclusion to the 2017 Top Franchises for Veterans Ranking by Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500. ASP is ranked number 60 of the top 150 franchises offering incentives and other programs to help veterans become franchisees.

“We are honored to be recognized on such a respected level,” said Stewart C. Vernon, Founder and CEO of ASP. “We are also proud to offer one qualified military veteran the support they need to start their own business through our 2017 ASP Veteran Program.”

The ASP Veteran Program is a nationwide program specifically geared to award an America’s Swimming Pool Company franchise to one qualified military veteran each year. Since 2015, ASP has accepted a new batch of applications each year for the annual ASP Veteran Program. Any U.S. military veteran is qualified to enter the nationwide competition, which includes written essays and one-on-one interviews at the Macon, Georgia headquarters. Each year, ASP waives the franchise fee for the veteran who is selected as the winner – an average value of more than $65,000 (actual value varies by market). Visit ASPfranchising.com/Veterans to learn more about the program and fill out the entry form. Deadline Extended – applications for the 2017 ASP franchise giveaway will be accepted until November 30th.

“We are constantly looking for those individuals who have served our country and are now searching for a business opportunity to take them to the next level,” said Jef E. Flournoy, VP of Franchise Sales & Development at ASP.

The team at ASP chooses to honor veterans because they represent some of the nation’s most hard-working, unselfish, and committed individuals. Entrepreneurship is ideal for veterans, and an ASP Franchise makes sure they aren’t working on this venture on their own–instead, an ASP franchise provides its franchise owners with the tools and support necessary for a successful swimming pool business in their chosen territory.

How were the 2017 Top Franchises for Veterans rankings determined?

Entrepreneur Magazine invited Franchise 500 ranked companies, that offer a veteran incentive, to participate in a survey designed to help them learn more about each company’s veteran program. From there, they developed a ranking of the top 150 franchises for veterans, taking into account each company’s veteran incentive, how veteran franchisees are attracted to and supported by the company, and how each company scored in the 2017 Franchise 500.

As the leading pool cleaning franchise, you can rest assured you won’t regret joining us as a franchisee. After the incredible sacrifices, you as a veteran have made for this nation, it is our turn to give you something back–you can be an independent business owner while jumping into a franchise at the height of its success. There’s no reason to hesitate to join us – the team at ASP is dedicated to helping veterans realize their dream of business ownership and reach success!

ASP Franchising is the corporate headquarters for America’s Swimming Pool Company, the nation’s largest swimming pool service franchise. The team at ASP franchising noticed many veterans were curious about business ownership and started showing interest in their swimming pool franchise. In 2015, the franchising team set out to form a veteran program franchise giveaway as a way to honor our nation’s heroes. Each year ASP will award one franchise to a qualified military veteran on Veterans Day. In addition to this exclusive giveaway, all qualified veterans who purchase a franchise receive a 15% discount on the initial franchise fee.

Many military veterans possess the skills needed to be great franchises such as commitment, trustworthiness, and unmatched determination to succeed. ASP wants to aid in unlocking that potential and help countless veterans realize their dream of business ownership.

On the franchisee side, ASP boasts a comprehensive training program and a strong support system.

For 11 days from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m, franchisees attend ASP’s Pool School on its campus in Macon, which features  14 working pools that have every kind of pool equipment conceivable.

At Pool School, in addition to the hands-on maintenance training, franchisees receive instruction in every aspect of running a business from marketing to billing to running QuickBooks.

Along with a local marketing team, the company has a national PR firm that supports franchisees, plus staff at headquarters who handle technical questions from franchisees throughout the day.

Continuing Success: ASP in Dallas Honored with Top Sales Award

Herschel Forester, Owner and Operator of America’s Swimming Pool Company (ASP) in Dallas, Texas, received Top Sales Award for 2016.

The Dallas franchise location has been ranked number one in sales for four consecutive years. It was announced this year that Forester and his team of 10 employees exceeded the $2 million mark for 2016.

“We have a team of dedicated, hardworking folks that make our business go,” said Forester.  “I have enjoyed having my wife, Cindy, work with us for the past couple of years. I am also proud of our pool renovation department that is very productive under Darren Kesler’s leadership.”

Top Sales Award - Dallas

Reaching these goals has been a great accomplishment for the Dallas team.

Forester launched the Dallas location in 2010 by converting his previously self-employed pool business to an ASP franchise. Converting his business has been a significant factor in his growth, along with the counsel from both the Founder and Vice President of the franchise organization.

“We are proud of Herschel’s accomplishments and his ability to surpass sales expectations every year,” said Vernon. “This Owners Meeting encouraged owners to take their businesses from good to great, and that’s what Herschel and his team strive to accomplish every day in his business.”
