TAMPA, Fla. – ASP – America’s Swimming Pool Company is open for business in Tampa, Florida. ASP is a swimming pool service franchise that provides local swimming pool maintenance and cleaning programs, pool inspections, pool equipment diagnostics, pool repairs, pool supplies and pool renovation services. John Barthelemy is the owner and operator of this franchise location serving, Tampa, Lutz, Odessa, and New Port Richey.

“We welcome John to the ASP family,” said Stewart C. Vernon, Founder & CEO of America’s Swimming Pool Company. “His dedication to superior customer service and attention to detail is sure to give ASP of Tampa a successful start and supply growth in the coming years.”

Barthelemy recently retired from working as VP of Information Technology at a corporate insurance agency in Tampa. After leaving corporate America, he began planning his next adventure – business ownership. He started by exploring franchise business opportunities, so Barthelemy could quickly start up his business once he found his perfect match. After hearing about America’s Swimming Pool Company’s support for success, and the number of pools that needed professional and reliable pool care in Tampa, the choice was clear.

“It feels good to open a new business in my hometown and rewarding to start a business I can pass down to my family for years to come,” said Barthelemy.

Barthelemy’s dedication to his family is one of the reasons why he decided to take the path of investing in his own service business. Ron Rodgers, Barthelemy’s son-in-law, accompanied him to Pool School, ASP’s 12-day training program at headquarters, this July and is working as a key employee in the business. Together, this duo of pool professionals has the knowledge, tools, and resources needed to provide only the best service in the pool industry.

“I stand by the core values of this company and will work hard to provide a higher standard of pool care to our customers,” said Barthelemy.

Barthelemy and his family possess the building blocks of what will help this business succeed. Barthelemy is very involved with his church and their mission to help others, which he believes, will help him run an ethical business. They are genuinely someone you can rely on and trust.

 “Our goal is to deliver excellent customer service to our community so homeowners can enjoy their leisure time more,” said Barthelemy.
