ASP Franchisee, Marsh Flatau Featured in Birmingham News

Marsh Flatau, franchisee of ASP-America’s Swimming Pool Company in Birmingham was recently featured in the Birmingham News in an article entitled, “Entrepreneur: Marsh Flatau makes the leap from waiter to business owner.” Marsh opened the franchise in Birmingham in the Spring of 2010 and earned the title of the highest sales of any franchisee opening this year earning over $100,000 in sales in the first eight months. What enticed Marsh about this business opportunity was the low start-up cost and low franchise fee allowing him to open quickly and by purchasing only chemicals, equipment and a truck. Marsh operates the business mostly by himself at this point and looks forward to the opportunity to grow in Birmingham with a large number of pools in the area.
