Cristin and Brad Gosslee are pleased to announce that they’re bringing a new, high-quality painting option to their community with their new business – Fresh Coat of Shreveport-Bossier.

Fresh Coat offers residential and commercial painting services including interior or exterior painting, wood staining, and other services for nearly every protective coating application. They have a 24/7 receptionist, online scheduling, free and detailed quotes, and they only use high-quality materials. All of Fresh Coat’s professional painters are also background checked and insured. Fresh Coat of Shreveport-Bossier serves the entire Shreveport-Bossier area.

“Fresh Coat is a high-end painting company and we pride ourselves on professional service. We give accurate, on-the-spot quotes that make sense, our painters are professional and on-time, we do great work and we respect our clients and their homes. Having your home painted can be a great experience when you work with Fresh Coat,” Cristin said.

Cristin and Brad, along with Dianne and Jimmy Gosslee, are the owners of Coldwell Banker Gosslee in Shreveport and Bossier City. Brad is an active member in YPO (Young Presidents Organization), Committee of 100, and a Rotarian of the downtown Shreveport chapter. Both Cristin and Brad are very involved in Southfield School serving on their Board, Strategic Development Committee and as Chairperson of their Annual Fund.

Although Brad is a co-owner of the Fresh Coat business, Cristin will be leading the company. Cristin and Brad have been married for 16 years and have 3 children who all attend Southfield School. Prior to moving to Shreveport, Cristin worked in sales and marketing for technology based companies in San Francisco.

“We were researching companies that would be compatible with the real estate business, which is where we’ve continued to grow our business and build our Coldwell Banker Gosslee brand. Realtors almost always recommend for their clients to paint before they list a house and then most people who buy a house come in and paint again, so painting has a lot of synergy with real estate. We’re excited to be expanding our business profile, but we’re mostly looking forward to bringing a high-quality painting company with excellent service to our community,” Cristin said.

The Fresh Coat Painters franchise is growing rapidly throughout the United States, with independently owned and operated franchises in more than 130 markets. The Gosslee’s franchise is the first in Louisiana, but there are already 20 Fresh Coat franchises operating in Texas.

The Gosslees have hired Dan Kreamer as the General Manager for Fresh Coat of Shreveport-Bossier. He attended Evangel High School and then went on to play football at The University of Arkansas. He worked as a District Manager for Target Oilfield Services and most recently in outside sales for Construction Safety Products. He is married to Mary Catherine Kreamer, who is a teacher at South Highlands Elementary Magnet School. They welcomed their first child, Hutch, in August.

As part of Fresh Coat’s commitment to service, they offer a 3-3-3 customer service pledge, so calls will be answered by a live person within three rings, a quote will be delivered within three days (customer schedule permitting) and the job will be started within three weeks. Fresh Coat of Shreveport-Bossier is bonded and insured.

Fresh Coat was founded in 2004 as part of Strategic Franchising Systems. Since 2015, Fresh Coat has been included in the Bond’s Top 100 and named to Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500 list. Fresh Coat is also part of the International Franchise Association, the Small Business Association’s Franchise Registry, VetFran and Minority Fran.
