Share Article

Irvine-based painting contractor, College Works Painting, receives high praise from satisfied customers and wins its fourth Talk of the Town Award in four years.

For the fourth straight year, College Works Painting of Irvine has earned the highest possible rating of 5 stars, winning the business the 2014 Talk of the Town Customer Satisfaction Award in the Painting Contractors category.

Headquartered in Irvine, Calif., College Works Painting provides valuable, practical and life-changing business experience for college and university students who have shown potential for success, while also providing high-quality residential painting services for people interested in opening opportunities for the next generation of business leaders.

While the company’s goal is to empower college students to become the next generation of leaders, it also places a high priority on serving customers well and ensuring they are always satisfied. Winning its fourth consecutive Talk of the Town Award reinforces for the team at College Works Painting that this is being accomplished every day. “We are 100 percent focused on great customer and employee service, and we recognize the power of our customers’ opinion of our work,” says CEO Matthew Stewart. “We have worked hard to increase the number of positive reviews and experiences, and it is working.

“We are very excited about receiving this award again in 2014,” says Stewart. “This is a big pat on the back to our whole team.”

College Works Painting has been successful at serving customers by always saying yes — then asking the question. “We don’t want to say ‘no’ to our customers,” says Stewart.

In addition, the company is working with an outside consultant who is helping it focus on “above and beyond” activities for customer service every quarter. “We are constantly surveying our customers, bringing in resources to improve our systems, and auditing ourselves and our customer service standards,” says Stewart. “We will continue to focus on service, as it is the number one driver of our success.”

College Works Painting acknowledges the role its customers play in its continued success. “We want to thank our customers for helping us understand how to serve them better,” says Stewart. “We want to thank them for taking the time to communicate with us and thank them, of course, for their business.”
