ASP Awarded 2015 Entrepreneur Magazine Franchise 500 Award
Pool Cleaning Franchise Company Climbs the Ranks
Macon, Georgia– ASP, America's Swimming Pool Cleaning Franchise Company is proud to be recognized among the nation's leading franchise companies according to Entrepreneur Magazine. Since its 2010 induction to the list with a ranking of 468, ASP has climbed each year and in 2015 landed the rank of 188.
"We started this company with the belief that the pool service industry needed a higher quality, more dependable service that customers could afford. What started as a single location grew more rapidly than any of us expected," said CEO and Founder, Stewart Vernon. "We are proud to offer outstanding service to both our customers and our franchisees and to see the brand we created expand quickly to become one of the nation's leading franchises."
Entrepreneur Magazine has been releasing the top franchise rankings for 36 years and puts in a significant amount of work to narrow down the top choices. Each year this list is consulted by potential franchisees as a starting point for which franchise offers growth and revenue potential and would be a good fit for them. The process for the 2015 awards began in July of 2014 when franchisors were asked to participate in a survey about their business. The companies chosen to make the list had to meet the following criteria:
- Must provide a Full Disclosure Agreement
- Must be verified by Entrepreneur Magazine
- Have a minimum of 10 units with at least one based in the US
- Must be seeking franchisees to help expand the brand in the US
- Can NOT be in Chapter 11 filing proceedings
Companies who meet the criteria are then judged by quantifiable measures of their franchise operations.
ASP, America's Swimming Pool Company began franchising in 2005, and currently has 68 franchisees operating 178 locations in 18 states. The company was originally founded by Vernon in Macon, Georgia as a means to fill a void in the swimming pool industry. The growth experienced since then speaks volumes to the need the industry has and the untapped potential therein.
