ASP Franchising Continues Growth and Expansion
Macon, Ga. – ASP Franchising, the corporate headquarters for the nation’s largest swimming pool maintenance, repair and renovation company, has expanded its campus footprint yet again.
In 2013, ASP doubled its original campus on Lake Street in Macon, Ga. by constructing a new building to accommodate a pool training facility, including two outdoor training pools, two indoor training pools, and classroom space. The property adjacent to the current campus became vacant, and Stewart Vernon, founder and C.E.O. of ASP, saw the opportunity to further expand the campus and offer franchise owners the best training experience possible.
“We were outgrowing the space we added last year,” said Vernon. “By further expanding the campus, we have increased the quality of training we offer, giving our owners the competitive edge they need in this industry.”
The new property has doubled the size of both the training facilities and the campus. The new property includes 10,000 square feet of warehouse space, which will soon become an indoor swimming pool training center and will house 5 new fully-functioning swimming pools, in addition to a host of expansive training stations, representing pool equipment from every manufacturer in the pool business. This training space serves a dual purpose, allowing ASP to train new franchise owners, as well as providing existing owners continuing education opportunities so they can stay current with industry trends and equipment.
The expansion also adds 4,000 square feet of office space and 2 more acres to the existing campus. The ASP Franchising campus now totals 7 acres, with 22,000 square feet of office and training space and 10 fully-functioning swimming pools, making it the largest and most comprehensive swimming pool service training facility in the world.
ASP was founded in 2001 by Vernon and began franchising in 2005. Currently, ASP serves over 200 cities through 158 territories in 16 states.
