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.

Owning an ASP Pool Service Business

Once the sale is complete, owners attend a 12-day training course that we like to call Pool School. Located in Macon, Georgia, new franchisees gather for a thorough pool education course in Macon, Georgia. Whether you have extensive knowledge in pool maintenance or have never been around pools, owning an ASP franchise can be your ticket to success. The training at Pool School is so extensive and in depth that franchise owners walk away knowing all things pools.

You can expect to learn all pool repairs and installations, complete “Green to Clean” processes, on-site technical support, accounting and bookkeeping, marketing, water analysis, safety training, hands-on equipment training, and human resource training.
