Military Veteran Launches Pool Service Business

Thanks to a local Army veteran, America’s Swimming Pool Company (ASP) is open for business in El Paso.

ASP provides swimming pool maintenance and cleaning programs, pool equipment diagnostics, pool repairs, pool supplies, and pool renovations in El Paso and the surrounding areas. Cody Blair is the owner and operator of this location.

“Cody is committed to growing his business, and it shows,” said Stewart C. Vernon, Founder and CEO of America’s Swimming Pool Company. “We value his hard work and desire to continue building the ASP brand.”

Blair, a Texas native, is excited to be open for business in his home state.  He holds a degree in Computer Information Systems and enjoys spending time with his wife, Valeria, and their two daughters, who have a passion for competitive horseback riding.

Blair has spent the last 12 years serving as an Aeromedical Evacuation Pilot in the United States Army. February 25, 2017, marked the day he officially transitioned from his military career and started his new journey as a business owner in the swimming pool service industry.

“I have always wanted to start my own business, so I began to do a lot of research,” said Blair. “After seeing ASP listed as one of the top franchises in VetFran and Entrepreneur 500, I realized this business opportunity would be the best fit for my needs.”

Blair has gone through several challenges in his life. These challenges have allowed him to recognize the need to find an opportunity where he could enjoy more time with his family while still being able to serve others.  ASP provided the necessary training and resources, making it easier for Blair to launch his business shortly after leaving the military.

“I’ve noticed a connection in my previous work and the work I am doing now,” said Blair. “Take care of your people, and you will be successful. ASP of El Paso is committed to taking care of our customers.”
