MACON, Georgia– ASP – America’s Swimming Pool Company, announced the launch of the newest pool maintenance franchise to join their family in Wilmington, North Carolina. Owners Michael & Laura Brown are set to open doors in February 2016.

“The Browns will prove to be a valuable addition to the ASP franchise family,” said Stewart Vernon, Founder & Chief Executive Officer of ASP. “Their passion and drive to success will prove to be qualities that help them scale the business and build the ASP brand in North Carolina.”

Michael earned a bachelor’s degree from Texas A&M in engineering and spent the better part of his career as an engineering officer in the Navy, and later for Michelin. After working long hours and living in 14 states and 3 countries, Michael decided it was time for him and Laura to run a business together. Laura has a degree in sociology, and a nursing degree. During their search for franchise opportunities, they found ASP, and since Michael loves caring for his father’s pool, the decision made sense.

“Through our prior work experience, we are both used to figuring out what people need and determining a plan of action to meet those needs,” said Laura. “I am comfortable meeting new people, establishing relationships, and problem solving, and Mike is good fixing pools. Together, we make a great team!”

Michael & Laura are no strangers to the water. When they are not busy with their pool service franchise, they both enjoy scuba diving as certified divers. They also enjoy spending time with their kids and grandkids.

ASP was founded in 2001 by Stewart Vernon of Macon, Georgia. He noticed the problems facing the industry and set out to find a better way to solve them. His philosophy of providing a higher quality pool service at a price pool owners could afford proved to be successful, and by 2005 the company was offering pool maintenance franchise opportunities. ASP currently has 180 territories nationwide and continues to be the most trusted swimming pool service provider in America.
