Why We Love Louisville
People who know sports, music, or business have an appreciation for Louisville, Kentucky. In terms of population and size, it’s on the smaller side, but it has a big city feel. Each year, the Kentucky Derby takes place in Louisville, giving the city a chance to shine on the world stage. Whether you watch the “best two minutes in sports” to see the hats or the horses, the running of the Kentucky Derby is an event that has captivated fans since it began back in 1875.
Louisville is the largest city in Kentucky, and is also known for its friendly people and southern charm. Tourists and residents alike enjoy the bustling downtown atmosphere with its many coffee shops, restaurants and bars. The city is also called the “Gateway to the South” and is home to the Louisville Slugger bat factory and museum. American celebrities such as Tom Cruise, Jennifer Lawrence, and Rajon Rondo were born or have lived there, as well as boxing legend Muhammad Ali. If you open a pool cleaning franchise in Louisville, you may want to brush up on your sports knowledge as a way to connect with your future clients. Louisvillians are proud of their basketball history, with the University of Louisville Cardinals representing their city with 42 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament appearances. Louisville has all the culture and diversity of a big city, yet it still maintains the quaint and close-knit feel of a family-friendly community.
The Louisville Economy
Three Fortune 500 companies are headquartered in the metropolitan area of Louisville; Kindred Healthcare, Humana, and Yum! Brands (the owner of fast food chains Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, and KFC) bring big business to the city. UPS also operates out of Louisville, making the city a national and global business hub. The new owner of ASP Louisville will join a business community that is smaller than those in some of the major cities across the U.S., but it’s a city that can compete and hold its own on the same grand scale.
The entrepreneurial community in Louisville is healthy and strong enough to support a thriving ASP pool cleaning franchise. Nicknamed the City of Possibilities, Louisville will make the perfect location for a new franchise owner to prosper as a provider of excellent pool service. Networking opportunities are plentiful, and relationships with other local business owners can help you learn and grow your company.

Learning From Experience
Some of the best advice you can get when starting your own business comes from other franchise owners who can share their experiences with you. When you join the ASP family, you will get the opportunity to meet and speak with some of our existing franchisees. They are more than happy to fill you in on everything you want to know about opening the doors to your own ASP pool cleaning franchise. Until you are introduced in person, reading testimonials of ASP owners is another way to educate yourself on how our system has worked for others.
Bram and Karen Schad, owners of ASP Ocala, FL, are an excellent example of an ASP success story. Because of their hard work and dedication to providing exceptional pool service, their franchise won the 2019 ASP Franchise of the Year Award. Other honors they have narned include:
2015 Founder’s Club Award
2014 Chairman’s Club Award
2013 Best New Franchise Start
2013 President’s Club Award
They attribute much of their achievements to the ASP business model and the support they receive. They say:
“The ASP franchise system has a proven business model for success. The most appealing aspect of joining the franchise system with ASP is the support, both technical and operational. The level of corporate support is very dependable. I looked at several other franchise concepts that offer similar business models, but ASP provided the most realistic, (non-pie in the sky) projections. The start-up costs were very reasonable. Anything is attainable, it just takes hard work and dedication. You get out what you put in, and ASP is a great team to be a part of.”
