Jim Rainey, a Tuscaloosa resident and former publisher of The Tuscaloosa News, is serving the community in a new way as a new local owner of Fresh Coat of Tuscaloosa.

He felt it was time for something new and business ownership was his next step.

“At Fresh Coat, we want to raise the bar in the painting industry. We are bonded and insured, and our painters are background-checked, screened and professionally-trained, so there’s a level of quality, security, and trust for our clients.

Jay Holcomb Launches Fresh Coat of Katy, TX

Jay Holcomb is excited to launch his new professional painting company, Fresh Coat Painters of Katy. Holcomb has had experience in the painting/coating industry, he had his own painting/coating business before the market crashed in 2008. For the last 24 years, Holcomb has had a successful corporate supply chain career. He was ready for a change from the corporate atmosphere and that’s where he learned about Fresh Coat. He launched his new business with his wife and co-owner, Cindy, along with their five sons. They’ve had experiences with painters who cut corners and are eager to bring this professional painting company to their community.

“I always enjoyed being a business owner, working with clients and having the opportunity to be out in the community. I was ready to do more than sit behind a desk and, as I thought about going back into the coatings/painting industry, I realized I could build on the business systems, processes and trust of a national company. That’s when I found Fresh Coat. Fresh Coat Painters has a system that works and one of the highest standards of service in the industry. I’m excited to bring that to this area,” Holcomb said.
