ASP Announces 2015 Franchisee of the Year Marcus Kuja

MACON, Georgia– ASP – America’s Swimming Pool Company, announced the winner of its Franchisee of the Year award at their annual owners meeting. Marcus Kuja, owner/operator of the Savannah and Glynn County, Georgia franchise locations was honored to receive the award as a tribute to his hard work and dedication to his pool cleaning franchise.

Kuja first joined ASP as a General Manager for the two franchises. At the start of 2015, he bought out his partners to become the sole owner of both franchise locations, and worked hard to make any improvements he saw fit to grow the business and make it a million dollar operation. Kuja, a self-proclaimed man of few words, has been asked time and time again if he would repeat his actions to which he quickly replies, “YES!”

“Kuja embodies what it is we are doing as a company,” said Stewart Vernon, Founder & Chief Executive Officer of ASP. “Everything from the way he keeps his books to how he handles phone calls, and customer service is flawless. I’ve respected him every step along the way. Choosing him as the recipient of the Franchisee of the Year award was a very easy decision, and I couldn’t be happier for Marcus!”

Kuja’s franchises were also recognized among those introduced to the President’s Club, which consists of franchises whose earnings exceeded $500,000 in 2015. During the meeting, the theme for 2016 was announced to all ASP franchises as ‘Leaders…Leading the industry.’ “Kuja is a perfect example of a leader in his community,” Vernon said, “It’s because of leaders like him that the ASP brand continues to grow and reach toward our goal of coast to coast expansion.”

ASP is no stranger to quick growth. Founded in 2001 as a way to raise the bar on the current swimming pool industry, Vernon built the company on the belief that providing a higher quality pool service at an affordable price would allow him to compete in his market. His instincts were right. ASP expanded quickly and began offering pool service franchises for sale in 2005. Currently, the company has over 180 territories nationwide and continues to be known as America’s #1 Swimming Pool Company.

Forester is a true leader, and we expect great things from him again in 2016.”

Vernon first introduced Herschel to the crowd as “The Two Million Dollar Man,” to which Herschel responded by discussing the importance of synergism and working as a team. “I tell my guys all the time don’t say ‘Herschel decided to do this,’ instead say ‘we as a company decided to do this,” Herschel continued, “and I think the same applies to ASP as a whole, we are doing a great job!” He closed his acceptance speech by inviting any other franchisee to ‘come on down and hop in the truck with us’ if there was anything he and his team could help with.

ASP of Gilbert, Arizona Under New Ownership

MACON, Georgia– ASP – America’s Swimming Pool Company announced recently that their Gilbert, Arizona franchise would be under new ownership as of February 2016. The new owner/operator, Jacob Burr, is set to open doors in February 2016. Born and raised in Gilbert, Burr is ready to introduce his community to a higher level of pool service.

“Burr will be a valuable addition to the ASP family,” said Stewart Vernon, Founder & Chief Executive Officer of ASP. “His fearless attitude and willingness to ask for business will help him grow his franchise quickly and effectively.”

After high school, Burr served a two year mission for his church in Paraguay, where he spent time going door to door to find people to share his message with. This experience taught him how to build relationships, talk to people from all backgrounds, and find common beliefs. Following his missionary service, Burr returned to Gilbert to continue his studies. While putting himself through school, Burr spent his summers working selling pest control services door to door. His experience as a missionary helped him overcome any fears he may have had with talking to people, and led to a successful sales career.

When summers away from the family began to wear on him, Burr accepted a job at American Express, where he learned that his skills would be better used if he were working for himself. A family friend referred him to ASP’s pool maintenance franchise opportunity, and Burr was attracted to the glowing online reviews and the level of support the franchise offered. From his past experiences, Burr is not afraid to go door to door and ask for business from local pool owners, something that other pool companies in the area are not already doing.

ASP was founded in 2001 by Stewart Vernon of Macon, Georgia. Vernon saw flaws in the existing pool service business, and knew that with a higher level of pool service, at a price pool owners could afford, he would have the competitive edge. ASP experienced rapid growth in the first years of existence, and by 2005 began offering franchise opportunities. The company has now grown to include over 180 franchise locations nationwide, and has become known as America’s #1 Swimming Pool Company.
