Is your dream to start a business and be your own boss? It may be the far-fetched American Dream, but it is attainable. Starting a business with a new idea or on your own is daunting and ruthless. Criticism will come at you from every angle, capital is difficult to raise, spreading the word and advertising your business takes time and energy and in the end, your business may fail. What if there was a way to guarantee your success as a business owner? What if there was a path that had already been paved for you? What if there was a tried and true process that has already given entrepreneurs like yourself the lifestyle that they always desired? There is a way. It is through America’s Swimming Pool Company. The ASP pool service business is designed to provide higher quality swimming pool service, repairs, maintenance, remodels, and more to residential and commercial pool owners. ASP is constantly expanding its franchises across the country and currently has a pool franchise for sale in the Hamptons, New York. Now is the prime time to lock in this opportunity in the highly desired community of the Hamptons. It will not stay on the market for long. 

Why the Hamptons, Suffolk County?

The Hamptons have a reputation for being the place that affluent New York City residents escape to for vacation during the summer. The long stretch of coastline is lined with mansions and cottages, towns and villages, hotels, shops, and high-end dining. And yes, elegant pools can be found in the luxurious backyards of these mansions and on hotel properties. While it sounds like you have to be rich and famous to feel comfortable in The Hamptons, that is far from true. Everyone is welcome in the Hamptons. The summertime weather draws tourists and residents to the serene beaches and crystal clear pools to enjoy the perfect and humid 80 degree weather, daily. Starting a pool service business in the Hamptons proves to be profitable and needed. There are a few pool companies that currently serve the area, but America’s Swimming Pool Company is ready to make a splash in the economy by introducing its first ASP franchise to the Hamptons. The East Hamptons Chamber of Commerce has a strong presence for promoting economic development. The Chamber is supported by over 100 members, and is led and organized by an Executive Director and volunteer Board of Directors. America’s Swimming Pool Company advises its franchisees to join the Chamber of Commerce in their new place of business to assist them in spreading the word and giving them opportunities to promote their new business and thrive.

Meet Your Team at ASP America's #1 Pool Cleaning Business

Stewart Vernon founded America’s Swimming Pool Company in 2002. He started the company to provide his hometown of Macon, Georgia, with a higher quality swimming pool service company.

Today, there are more than 100 franchise owners throughout the United States. Buying a pool cleaning business for sale has never been so promising. 

The ASP Goal for Franchisees

America’s Swimming Pool Company carefully hand-selects its employees that share the ASP vision and goal. All of the team members have the same goal in mind: to create the best business they possibly can. The executives and trainers at the headquarters are there to guarantee that franchisees achieve their goals, and then go on to exceed them. Thomas P. Swift, Jr., the Chief Operating Officer of America’s Swimming Pool Company, did exactly that. Swift purchased his first franchise with ASP back in 2006.

This is who we’re going to go with.” No one jumps into this business without having full knowledge of what is expected of them and how to achieve their goals. At ASP, you are family. Your success is the only way that ASP succeeds.

Once franchisees have committed to purchasing a pool cleaning business for sale in their desired area, they attend pool school in Macon, Georgia at the headquarters.

He and Mr. Noggle are together responsible for the initial pool school and day to day support of franchisees. Matt Gresham, Casey Sloan, and Mac Leskosky are there to assist and support franchisees with QuickBooks, business planning, budgeting, and working together with Jimmie Meece to implement company policies, procedures, and new programs.

The ASP Brand

America’s Swimming Pool Company is known across the nation as the #1 leader of swimming pool service and repair companies. This why so many entrepreneurs seek a pool cleaning business for sale with ASP. Meghan Meece, the Director and Web and Communications, has achieved this brand name recognition through powerful marketing techniques. Mrs. Meece oversees public relations, social media accounts and advertising, search engine optimization, and website development and customization for new franchisees. ASP franchise owners also assist in keeping the brand name as the most respected pool service company by upholding the highest standards of pool and customer service. When you join the ASP team, you will receive the addresses of residential and commercial properties with pools. There are 11 million pools throughout America and every pool needs to be serviced. Currently, only half of these pools receive professional service, which means there is plenty of room for growth. By making use of promotional materials, ASP owners can establish and grow their pool franchise immediately. Pool maintenance, cleaning, and repairs can eat up pool owner’s time quickly, leaving them with little time to play in their pool. After all, pools are built for fun and entertainment. If pool owners cannot enjoy the pool that they poured thousands of dollars into, what is the point of having one? ASP’s affordable service and repair pricing draws clients in and keeps them happy. Other pool cleaning businesses for sale do not have the network or volume of purchases from suppliers to be able to offer our highly discounted pricing to pool owners. Customers and potential customers will recognize the ASP brand because of your branded work truck, professional promotional materials, online presence through search-engine-optimized websites, and the ten-week step-by-step marketing action plan that franchisees learn. 

A Technology Driven Company Keeping Up with the Times

The old fashioned way of doing business included a lot of paper, which also meant franchisees needed an office. ASP utilizes PoolOps technology which cuts down on paper and time while increasing communication and efficiency of our franchisees. By using an app on your phone, ASP owners can communicate with customers, schedule appointments, organize and grow their pool franchise. The productivity that PoolOps provides to our franchisees and customers allows them to service even more pools every day while still upholding the highest quality of service.
