ASP Pool Franchise Opportunities: Not Your Average Pool Company

ASP Pool Franchise Opportunities: Not Your Average Pool Company

ASP is growing and excited to welcome William Schlemmer to the pool supply franchise family! Schlemmer is among the great franchisees we have had join our family in 2015, and opened his doors in March 2015 to the Virginia Beach area.

Pool Supply Franchise That Doesn't Have You Counting Days Until Retirement

Schlemmer graduated from the University of Idaho, and upon graduation was commissioned as an officer in the Navy. He served for 22 years in that capacity where he toured several states and overseas. Upon retiring in 2013, Schlemmer went on to work for Amazon as a manager at a fulfillment center. The days were long and hours were longer, constantly pulling him away from his family, and he resigned in 2014.

Of these years in his life, Schlemmer said, "In the navy, I was constantly counting the months until I could retire; at Amazon I was counting never ending days and living in what felt like purgatory. Now, I am having so much fun, I don't even know what month it is! I love it!"

Pool Business for Sale... Pass...

After resigning from Amazon, Schlemmer heard about an opportunity with ASP, but was not sure life as a 'pool boy' was for him. With some encouragement from a friend, he studied the opportunity more and realized that ASP is different than other pool companies in Virginia, and was fully onboard. Though he had been approached by other franchise opportunities, once ASP was on his radar, all other business opportunities were out.
Though he is just getting started with ASP, Schlemmer has big plans for the future. Watch out Virginia Beach, this 'pool boy' is changing the way you look at pool service! Schlemmer opened doors in March 2015, and provides swimming pool cleaning and maintenance services to Virginia Beach and surrounding areas.
