Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) July 24, 2014
After a decade of franchising and upholding their commitment to making it possible for veterans to own a Fresh Coat franchise, the company has been recognized as one of USA Today’s Top 50 Franchises for Veterans.
"Fresh Coat Painters is thrilled to be awarded for our efforts to be welcoming to our nation's veterans. Offering ownership discounts and additional support to our veterans looking to start their own Fresh Coat Painters franchise is something we're more than happy to do and it's great to be recognized for that. We are extremely proud of all of our franchisees who served in the military. They are truly top notch people and business owners,” Fresh Coat Painters President Bernard Brozek said.
Fresh Coat Painters offers professional residential and commercial painting services including interior and exterior painting, wood staining and refinishing, wallpaper removal and many other services for nearly every protective coating application. They use quality, environmentally safe materials and offer a live 24/7 customer service center, online scheduling and free detailed quotes. All Fresh Coat employees are insured, trained and background checked.
Fresh Coat was founded in 2004 as part of Strategic Franchising Systems. In the last year, Fresh Coat has been included in Bond’s Top 100 and named to Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500 list. Fresh Coat also is part of the International Franchise Association, the Small Business Association’s Franchise Registry, VetFran and Minority Fran.
Of Fresh Coat Painters 115 owners, approximately 25 percent are veterans. Franchisee Kelly Ross says that owning a Fresh Coat allowed her family to live the life they wanted to live.
“To us Fresh Coat has meant freedom. We had the desire to own our own business and to have the freedom to manage our lives around that. However, we knew we needed the support of a franchise to make that desire a reality. The Fresh Coat program and Operations team have done just that for us. They have provided guidance for every aspect of owning the franchise and have acted as our personal cheerleaders when needed. With drive and passion the Fresh Coat solution works and we are still in business a year after purchasing our franchise and proud of that. We are also proud to be part of the Fresh Coat family of other franchise owners who continuously support one another and our tagline of ‘Painting Done Right!’” Ross said.
Another recent Fresh Coat franchisee, Rich Whitaker, is proud to be a veteran Fresh Coat owner. Whitaker opened his Fresh Coat in Clarksville, Tennessee, earlier this year after a 25-year career in the military. Although he’s been in business for less than six months, he’s already involved with charitable work for veterans in his community and recently painted an entire house for a fellow veteran as part of a Tennessee Housing Development Agency project.
“Fresh Coat offers veterans an opportunity to reach their full potential after military service. The low start-up cost and return on investment are what attracted me to Fresh Coat and the proven systems and operations support provided a structure that facilitated a rapid launch. The experienced leadership team is forward thinking and driven to help me succeed. I highly recommend Fresh Coat for those looking to leverage their leadership skills and commitment to succeed as business owners,” Whitaker said.
In addition to Fresh Coat’s commitment to the success of its franchise owners and award-winning products and services, military veterans also are eligible for a franchise ownership discount.
