ASP – America’s Swimming Pool Company announced the winner of the company’s Franchise of the Year for 2016. Clint Rowley, Owner/Operator of America’s Swimming Pool Company in Mesa, Ariz, was honored to be the recipient of this award when it was announced during the 10th annual ASP Owners Meeting in January 2017.
Five franchises were selected as a finalist for this special award and Rowley was chosen to be recognized as Franchise of the Year based on his time as an ASP franchise owner, his business’s total yearly sales, the ability to shine through the competition, and involvement in his community and the franchise organization.
Rowley contributes his success to the dedicated employees that make up Mesa’s team of qualified pool professionals. There are 12 professionals employed at the ASP location in Mesa, including two veterans who served in the Middle East.
“It was flattering and humbling to receive this award,” said Rowley. “I am proud of the honest and hardworking team we have built. This team is what has helped the Mesa location lead a path to success.”
The theme at the ASP annual event was 2017-Going from Good to GREAT, and there is no doubt that Rowley, and his team, exemplifies this keynote. Rowley first joined as an ASP franchise owner in 2012. His sales records have continued to accelerate in one of the most competitive swimming pool industry markets in the United States. Because of Rowley’s dynamic skills in sales, he was asked to lead a sales breakout during the ASP annual event. Rowley’s compelling personality makes him easily respected as a leader in the ASP franchise family.
In addition to Rowley’s leadership skills mentioned above, he is also a member of the ASP Franchise Advisory Council, Panel of Pros, and is a member of the Founders Club, which represents ASP franchise locations accomplishing over $1 million in sales.
“Successful franchise owners like Clint are what we need to take the ASP brand from good to great this year,” said Stewart C. Vernon, Founder and CEO of America’s Swimming Pool Company. “Clint knows the path to success, he knows what it takes for himself and his employees, and he executes his plans well. I couldn’t be more pleased to honor Clint with the Franchise of the Year Award.”
