The award-winning pool service franchise announces its ranking in the entrepreneur’s annual Franchise 500® list
January 26, 2021 // Franchising.com // MACON, Ga. – ASP – America’s Swimming Pool Company, a national swimming pool franchise, recently ranked 150th in Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500®. In the 42 years of its existence, the Franchise 500® has developed into a coveted award in the franchise industry, making it one of the company’s most competitive rankings.
“We are delighted to have continued our success over the past year despite the troubles many faced with the pandemic,” said Stewart C. Vernon, founder and COO of America’s Swimming Pool Company. “It is so rewarding to see our franchisees being recognized for their hard work to provide safe and superior service to consumers in these unprecedented times.”
According to Entrepreneur Magazine, this year’s list includes 76 maintenance franchises, partly due to the fact that many have been classified as “essential” businesses and could easily accommodate social distancing and other COVID-19 recommendations. Of these maintenance franchises, ASP stood out for the seventh time in a row, taking first place in the pool maintenance category. Faced with the challenge of addressing the COVID-19 pandemic, ASP continued to make all decisions by keeping an eye on each and every franchisee while navigating the pandemic and its policies. The brand provided access to resources and information to keep franchisees running smoothly and successfully, which was critical to the company’s success in 2020.
“2020 was a challenging year for everyone, but it was also a year with unusual opportunities,” says Jason Feifer, Editor-in-Chief of Entrepreneur. “Franchisees have been able to be nimble and innovative, serving the needs of franchisees and customers in a way that will resonate over many years. We believe that if we look back on that time at some point, we will see it as a moment in which many brands have defined themselves for the future. “
Since 2002, ASP has successfully set a higher standard for performance and stability in a fragmented, unreliable industry. Pool owners choose ASP for affordable, reliable, knowledgeable service they can trust – worry free. With 115 franchisees in 22 states, the company’s seasoned professionals service more than 420 million gallons of water each week.
