Franchise Summary

A Fresh Coat franchise sells painting services.
Company Background
Fresh Coat is a painting franchise with stores in over 100 cities across the U.S. and Canada. We provide high-quality painting services, including exterior and interior work, to homeowners looking for a fresh new look on their home or office space. Fresh Coat offers flat rates that include all materials and labor costs so you don't have to worry about hidden fees! Our painters are professional, trustworthy, and talented individuals who can transform your home into something beautiful in just one day - guaranteed!
Franchise Opportunity
Contractors have a hard time getting customers to trust them. The Fresh Coat franchise is revolutionizing the painting industry by using the Problem-Agitate-Solution formula in their marketing materials. Instead of just telling potential customers that they are trustworthy, they use social proof and testimonials from happy clients to prove it. This makes potential customers more likely to hire them for their next project! Our process uses only high quality paints and finishes, while providing an excellent customer experience at every step along the way. We will work with you every step of the way through our system which guarantees your satisfaction on completion of each project we undertake together."
