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!
