America's Swimming Pool Company Ranked on Entrepreneur Franchise 500 List
Award-winning pool service franchise announces ranking in Entrepreneur’s annual Franchise 500® list
January 26, 2021 // Franchising.com // MACON, Ga. - ASP - America’s Swimming Pool Company recently ranked No. 150 in Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500®. Over its 42 years in existence, the Franchise 500® has become a highly sought-after honor in the franchise industry making it one of the company’s most competitive rankings ever.
“We are thrilled to have continued success throughout the past year despite the difficulties many experienced at the hands of the pandemic,” said Stewart C. Vernon, founder and COO of America’s Swimming Pool Company. “It’s so rewarding to see our franchise owners be recognized for their hard work to provide consumers with safe and superior services during these unprecedented times.”
According to Entrepreneur Magazine, this year’s list includes 76 maintenance franchises, which is partially due to the fact that many were deemed “essential” businesses and could easily accommodate social distancing and other COVID-19 recommendations. Of these maintenance franchises, ASP stood out and ranked No. 1 in the Pool Maintenance category for the 7th consecutive year. When faced with the challenge of how to operate during the COVID-19 pandemic, ASP continued to make all decisions by keeping every individual franchisee in-mind while simultaneously navigating the pandemic and its guidelines. The brand provided access to resources and information to help franchise owners maintain a smooth and successful operation, which was crucial to the company’s success in 2020.
“2020 was a challenging year for everyone, but it was also a year of unusual opportunity,” says Jason Feifer, Entrepreneur editor-in-chief. “Franchises were able to be nimble and innovative, serving the needs of franchisees and customers in ways that will resonate for many years to come. We believe that, when we eventually look back on this time, we’ll see it as a moment when many brands defined themselves for the future.”
Since 2002, ASP has successfully set a higher standard of performance and stability to what has been a fragmented, unreliable industry. Pool owners choose ASP for affordable, reliable and knowledgeable service they can trust, worry-free.
