Need Some Painting Done in Tennessee? Look No Further!

Fresh Coat Painters has added Tennessee to its operations with the opening of Adam Richardson’s painting franchise to service Nashville, Murfreesboro, Franklin, Hendersonville, Goodlettsville, Mt. Juliet and other communities in Davidson, Rutherford, Sumner and Williamson counties.

For Richardson, 28, the business is the fulfillment of a long-time goal. “I started working at 16, and I’ve worked in a lot of small businesses,” he said. “Those taught me about how to treat people and ultimately I segued into client service where I’ve spent most of my career. My goal always was to have my own business, and Fresh Coat’s commitment to client service was fully in line with my own principles.”

Spring has Sprung... Time to Work!

Ahh. Spring is officially, even with the unseasonably warm winter experienced by much of the U.S., in the air. With spring comes the desire to open the windows, unclog the gutters, paint the kitchen and clean out that overflowing closet.

The home improvement industry has been dominated by retailers such as Home Depot and Lowe's that make do-it-yourself home projects look easy.

But not everyone is a DIY kind of guy (or gal). And these days, since consumers are willing to pay for almost anything, thousands of businesses have been created with professionals who will come and do all that work for you. Not only do home improvement services make for a potentially profitable business model for the handy to capitalize on, but since there is so much demand for these services, franchising the concept seems like a no-brainer.

Spotlight on: Franchise of the Year 2012

I want to take a moment to tell you about a new feature here on Fresh Coat TV: Spotlight. Most of the time, you'll notice that our posts revolve around happenings in the Fresh Coat world, mostly new openings or announcements. We also like to take the time, though, to feature new stories about our Franchisees and what they're doing to give the world a Fresh Coat.

So without further ado, I'd like to direct our first Spotlight toward our 2012 Franchise of the Year, Tracy, CA, and the owners, Cliff and Virna Hudson!

Since launching Fresh Coat Painters of Central Valley in 2008, Cliff and Virna have seen their business grow exponentially. Aside from the financial rewards, the business has been a boon to their region not only for clients, but also for their growing staff. Clients appreciate the company’s professionalism, Cliff said, which has led to “tons of referrals and repeat business.” And, Virna noted that employees are “building better lives for themselves. …. We’re providing the jobs that are allowing them to do it.”
