ASP Helping Veteran Entrepreneurs

ASP – America’s Swimming Pool Company Franchise Helping Veteran Entrepreneurs with Business Resources and Support

Our nation’s military veterans hold a special place in our hearts, so we wanted to find a way to help those veterans who are making the transition from the military to the civilian sector. ASP is honored to partner with Mission United, a local organization that serves veterans and their families by guiding them through a united system of comprehensive services, including connecting veterans to careers through education and training.

On Wednesday, October 25, 2017, Thomas P. Swift, Jr., President & COO of ASP, presented a workshop on the 10 Steps to Start a Business at the Georgia Veterans Education Career Transition Resource Center, located beside Robins Air Force Base in Warner Robins, Georgia. Thanks to our partnership with Mission United, ASP was able to be a resource to over 40 entrepreneurial veterans who attended this special workshop.

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.
