Fresh Coat Painters of M.O.T. Launches – Serving Middletown, Odessa and Townsend, Delaware

Experienced paint professional LaMont Hampton is pleased to announce the launch of his new professional painting company, Fresh Coat Painters of M.O.T.

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 detailed quotes, and they only use high-quality materials. Fresh Coat Painters of M.O.T. serves Middletown, Odessa, Townsend, Smyrna, Newark and Dover, Delaware.

Prior to launching Fresh Coat, Hampton spent more than 24 years working for Sherwin-Williams®, a Fresh Coat Painters’ national paint partner. He is a paint and coatings expert and has more than nine years of high-level management experience. Hampton is looking forward to bringing his knowledge, experience and customer-centric mindset to Fresh Coat. Hampton lives in the M.O.T. area with his wife, Elana, and their son, Joseph.

“There are a lot of painters out there, but most of them just put paint on walls. At Fresh Coat Painters of M.O.T., we are more than painters – we are also product experts. That means we understand how to help you find exactly the right coating for your project and we can apply it in the right way so it looks perfect every time,” Hampton said.

As part of Fresh Coat’s focus on 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. All Fresh Coat employees are specially trained, dependable and background-checked and Fresh Coat Painters of M.O.T. is bonded and insured.

During Hampton’s time with Sherwin-Williams, he met quite a few painting companies across five local markets. He chose Fresh Coat because of the professionalism and vision of the company.

“I’ve worked with a Fresh Coat franchisee over the years and, when I started looking for a business opportunity, a colleague told me that the Fresh Coat franchise in my area was available. I did my research and I’m excited to bring Fresh Coat to M.O.T. This is an up-and-coming painting franchise and the focus on quality, professionalism and customer services is what sets us apart,” Hampton said.

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.
