Meet Some of 2021’s Freshest Franchisees

The first quarter of 2021 saw growth in the footprint of the Fresh Coat Painters network in Texas, Ohio, and Illinois. Five new locations were launched, one new owner took over an existing territory and an existing owner expanded to a second territory. Fresh Coat Painters has proven to be a pandemic resistant franchise model as it is not only growing its number of locations during this challenging time, but it is also growing sales revenue.

Meet the new franchise owners:

Richard Jesuit, Fresh Coat Painters of SW Chicago

“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.”

I’m looking forward to bringing a new painting experience to the people right here in my own community.”

“Being a small business owner gives you a unique opportunity to make a difference for the people in your community, create jobs and give back.

Todd Carr, Fresh Coat Painters of Metro Chicago

"My level of experience working with clients, managing teams, and exceeding expectations makes me uniquely qualified to run a home improvement company. While it may not seem like there are many parallels between the two industries, the truth is that any great home improvement experience requires top-notch customer service, high-quality work, and exceptional communications. That’s what I’m looking forward to bringing to this business and to this industry.”
