UNICOM, ARINC or ASRI: What’s the Frequency, AC-U-KWIK?

Question: When using AC-U-KWIK, I often come across different types of frequencies to contact an FBO while inbound to an airport. Of course I am familiar with UNICOM, and I also know that ARINC frequencies are individual frequencies for FBOs. But why do I see ASRI frequencies listed in AC-U-KWIK?
