Meet the Owner: John Baldschun
Originally from Macon, GA, John moved to Chattanooga to attend Covenant College. John fell in love with the Tennessee Valley, and after graduating he put down roots here with his wife Jill. He began his career in financial services, but after 3 years became disenchanted with the corporate world. John knew his next career would be modeled after those of his favorite clients, blue-collar business owners. He explored several industries but decided an ASP – America’s Swimming Pool franchise provided a unique opportunity in the Tennessee Valley.
In 2009, ASP Chattanooga set the record for first-year franchise sales, was awarded Franchise of the Year in 2012 and 2017, and has been a member of the ASP Founders Club since 2013.
John is most proud of the team of people that make up ASP Chattanooga. When he’s not helping that group of people grow personally and achieve their goals, he can be found with Jill and their three children on their small farm south of Flintstone or exploring the streams of Tennessee and North Carolina with a fly rod in hand.
