We are meeting with Stewart Vernon, CEO and Founder of America’s Swimming Pool Company.
Today's show will discuss Stewart’s journey toward entrepreneurship and how he founded America’s Swimming Pool Company. He can discuss coming up with the business plan while in college, working as an apprentice after returning home for college and how he was able to get industry advice from a retired pool maintenance owner before launching his own company, ASP-America’s Swimming Pool Company. Stewart will discuss how he gained real experience by launching his own company and how that translated to the continued success that the brand is experiencing, having its best Q1 in 2012 to date. America’s Swimming Pool Company has also opened 16 new franchise territories that service 11 states and have signed their first Area Developer in Arizona this year.
America’s Swimming Pool Company, the Nation’s most respected swimming pool maintenance and repair franchise, was established in 2001 by Stewart Vernon of Macon, Georgia. The company was built on the belief that providing the highest-quality pool maintenance with competitive pricing and a high level of dependability will attract customers. Since 2005, ASP has expanded into 99 territories in the Southeast, servicing over 175 cities and eleven states across the country. At this point, the company manages over 60 million gallons of water per week and renovates or remodels more than 250 pools each year.
In part 2, we hear from the great Warren Greshes from our Great Quotes in Franchising Podcast.
