Macon, GA. – 2012 America’s Swimming Pool Company has seen tremendous growth as a Franchise company, now serving over 200 cities in 12 states. In 2012 ASP launched over one dozen new franchise locations across the country.  The “Best New Franchise Start” is an award that recognizes the top sales from a first year franchise location, highlighting the new owner’s hard-work and dedication to success.

James King, owner and operator of America’s Swimming Pool Company – Springfield, VA. was this year’s recipient. Mr. King is a retired Colonel in the United States Marine Corp. and was looking to start his second career by owning his own service company. With his military background, Mr. King brought forth a very strong work ethic and drive to be successful with his new venture.  The support from his wife, son and daughter also played a very critical role in his early success. Mr. King was able to have his initial success in a very seasonal swimming pool market in Springfield, VA., which also demonstrates his dedication to his customers and their needs. Mr. King embraced the principal that ASP was founded on, by providing exceptional customer service no matter the circumstances. “We are very excited with how well ASP of Springfield performed this year and look forward to watching it grow in 2013 and beyond,” stated Mr. Stewart Vernon, Founder and CEO of America’s Swimming Pool Company.
