Welcome to the Fresh Coat Painters Franchise Community
When someone asks us about our business, the first thing we say is that our business is about community. It's about working within communities, building relationships and creating job opportunities.
Founded by Gary D. Green in 2004, Fresh Coat became part of a growing conglomeration of franchise opportunities created by Strategic Franchise Systems designed around the concept of helping people. With over 3,000 franchises awarded by SFS in 500 plus markets around the world, Green and his team of award winning franchise developers have a reputation of integrity, dedication and perseverance.
"When I started the Fresh Coat Painters franchise, my goal was to create a program where individuals could succeed in a recession resistant business, while employing local painters to help support their cause. What it has grown into is much more than that. Being recognized as a leader in the industry and one of the top franchise organizations to join by elite organizations such as Entrepreneur Magazine and The Wall Street Journal has given Fresh Coat the boost it needs to sweep the nation, making a huge impact on the economy and the lives of the individuals in the communities they serve." Gary D. Green, CEO of Strategic Franchise Systems
Fresh Coat Painters strive to be the number one painting resource in their respective territories.
It's one thing for us to say we are great...it's another thing when someone else says it!
