America’s Swimming Pool Company announces Brad Baglio as the winner of the 2016 Veteran’s Program.

ASP's Veteran's Program honors military veterans who franchise with their company by providing the support they need to start their own business. Baglio, an Army veteran, competed against dozens of other veterans nationwide for the title. As the winner of the 2016 ASP Veteran Program, Baglio’s franchise fee was waived by the ASP corporate office. His award, based on location, amounted to $65,000.

Baglio opened an ASP franchise location in Bell County, Texas. Baglio is returning to central Texas and sees the homecoming with exciting business potential.

“My wife and I have many ties to the Bell County area,” said Baglio. “Our son was born here 10 years ago and we have great friends who are welcoming us back. It has always been our heart’s desire to return to Bell County. There is nothing like America’s Swimming Pool Company in the area, and I can’t wait to get started showing people the ASP difference.

“It is an honor to be a part of a franchise family that supports military veterans. Being selected as the veteran program winner is a dream come true! This opportunity is opening doors for me to build a business that I am passionate about.”
