ASP – America’s Swimming Pool Company announced the continuation of their Veterans Program. This program will award one U.S. military veteran with a pool service franchise this Veterans Day. ASP wants to honor veterans for their service to this country and will waive the franchise fee for one qualified veteran. ASP is the number one pool service franchise in the nation.
This program launched in 2015 and honored Miguel Macias with an ASP pool service franchise. He opened his location in Reno, NV in spring 2016 and has had a great start as a new business owner. Macias served in the U.S. Navy for 24 years, retiring as a Lieutenant Commander in 2015. When considering his options after retirement, he was introduced to the idea of being a business owner. A friend told Macias about a franchising opportunity that ASP was granting by waiving the franchise fee for a military veteran.
“We welcome veteran entrepreneurs to the ASP family. As a company, we are committed to honoring our veterans,” said Stewart C. Vernon, Founder and CEO of America’s Swimming Pool Company. “We want more franchise owners like Miguel, and an ASP franchise is an ideal fit for veterans.”
ASP has been named a Top 100 Franchise for Veterans and Franchising by Franchise Business Review. They are also proud members of VetFran, a company that assists veterans with finding franchising opportunities as a way to transition back into the civilian world. ASP is the number one pool service franchise in the nation and offers a proven ROI with a recurring monthly income. The pool industry is growing and experiences a steady demand on an annual basis. ASP offers exclusive territories to each franchisee, marketing data on every pool located in that territory, and comprehensive training, making prior experience in the industry a non-issue. ASP also offers a year-round initiative that grants a 15% discount off the franchise fee for any military veteran.
“Being a military man, I am used to taking plans of action and executing them. An ASP franchise is very similar. You have the operations plan, and as long as you follow it, you can be successful,” said Macias.
Veterans who wish to apply for pool franchise opportunities need to apply before 10/15/2016 to be qualified for the franchise fee to be waived. More information on the application and qualification process can be found at www.ASPfranchising.com/Veterans or call 888.814.8093 for more information.
