When Air Force Veteran Troy Page found himself furloughed during the COVID-19 pandemic, he decided it was time to follow his entrepreneurial spirit and launch his own company. That’s what led Page and his wife, Niki, to open Fresh Coat Painters of State College. This new franchise serves the Centre and Juniata Valley regions of Central Pennsylvania
“Once I made the decision to open my own company, I wanted to offer a service where I could use my experience and training to fill a need and serve my community. I selected Fresh Coat Painters because of the national focus on positive customer experiences. I saw an opportunity to raise the standard on a sometimes-underserved industry. Our process isn’t just about getting clients and getting the jobs done – it’s about using the very best background checked painting professionals, doing every project right with the highest level of craftsmanship. As a result, this gives our customers and community confidence and peace of mind that they are receiving the highest quality product,” Page said.
Page and his wife are both veterans of the United States Air Force and met while serving at Spangdahlem AB Germany. They have proudly raised their family and have been part of the Mifflin County community for the last 19 Years. Page previously operated his own contracting company before taking on a position with a large industrial service and maintenance company. During this time, he earned the Project Management Certification from Penn State and his PMP credential from the Project Management Institute (PMI) before being furloughed. He chose Fresh Coat Painters because of the company’s focus on professionalism.
“There are other painting companies in the area, but we saw a need for a professional organization focused on quality and exceptional customer service … We always use industry best practices and the highest-quality materials, we will always be on-time and on-budget, and we offer a warranty to back up all our work. We believe that this level of service provides that extra peace of mind to our customers and community. That’s what sets Fresh Coat Painters of State College apart,” Page said.
