When Richard Jesuit was thinking about opening a painting company, he turned to his favorite painter, his brother, who has 30 years of experience and has cared for some of Chicago’s famous Painted Ladies . His advice? Open a Fresh Coat Painters franchise.
“My brother and nephew have been painting for more than 30 years, so I talked to them about the franchises in the area and they recommended Fresh Coat Painters for the reputation, process and overall business model. I’m looking forward to bringing all of that to my community,” Jesuit said.
Now Jesuit is pleased to announce the launch of his new company – Fresh Coat Painters of Plainfield, which serves Plainfield, Yorkville, Shorewood, Bolingbrook, Downers Grove and Naperville.
“Fresh Coat Painters is unique because of our approach to customer service. We only hire high-quality, background-checked painters and we guarantee our clients’ satisfaction with a one-year workmanship guarantee. I am looking forward to changing the painting experience in this market,” Jesuit said.
Jesuit has a bachelor’s degree in business from Dominican University and started his career running funeral homes. For the last 25 years, he has worked in the car business, doing everything from individual and commercial sales to managing departments and business leadership. His brother, an experienced painter who has refurbished Painted Ladies in Chicago and Oak Park, will be running the painting operations while Jesuit manages the business and client relations.
