MACON, Ga. – ASP – America’s Swimming Pool Company was recently ranked in Entrepreneur magazine’s Fastest-Growing Franchises list. This highly competitive list recognizes the 150 companies with the greatest franchise unit growth in North America, based on data submitted for Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500® ranking. Thanks to its exceptional growth, ASP was ranked #85.

America’s Swimming Pool Company specialized in swimming pool cleaning, maintenance, and repair. The company was founded in 2002 by Stewart C. Vernon of Macon, Georgia. Upon launching the business and experiencing rapid growth, Vernon explored ways to expand the business model and ASP brand. By 2005, Vernon designed a franchise business model with low barriers to entry and quickly began to fill a void in the swimming pool service industry. Today, the company has developed to over 254 franchise locations in 20 states across the nation.

“Our company culture is an important part of our franchise growth,” said Vernon. “We continue to look for franchisees that embrace our mission to create superior value for our customers in all that we do by leveraging technology, superior knowledge, higher standards, and the relentless pursuit of excellence.”

Entrepreneur’s 2018 Fastest-Growing Franchises ranking is based on each company’s net franchise-unit growth in the U.S. and Canada from July 31, 2016 to July 31, 2017, with ties broken based on percentage growth. ASP’s position on the ranking demonstrates the brand’s rising popularity with both franchisees and customers.

“For business owners who want to grow their brand quickly, franchising is a compelling and often effective option,” says Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur. “The companies on this list prove that well, having opened a combined total of more than 10,000 new franchises in just one year.”
