Five Star Painting - Franchise

Starting a Painting Business
A Big Canvas and a Big Opportunity
Starting your own painting business can be an exciting venture, but it can often come with challenges. You are responsible for marketing and business development responsibilities which many startup entrepreneurs underestimate the amount of time required.

Still, owning your own painting business can result in professional freedom and a lifetime of personal rewards. The painting industry generally experiences consistent growth. And with interior and exterior job opportunities available in residential and commercial buildings, painting allows for year-round revenue opportunities in virtually unlimited markets.

So, where do you begin? You can either do it yourself or consider owning a Five Star Painting franchise that provides a range of benefits you may find are precisely what you need.

Why Five Star Painting?

When you start a painting business with Five Star Painting®, many obstacles facing do-it-yourself upstart painters disappear. As a new franchise business owner, you now have people to rely on.

What We Do
World-Class Marketing and Support
Our franchise owners are our top priority
We understand feeling secure in your business means being prepared, so we make sure to provide the information, tools, and resources you need. Not only will you have a dedicated Sure Start Consultant who will guide you through the opening of your Five Star Painting franchise, once you are set up, you will have a dedicated Franchise Business Coach.

Our ultimate goal is to help you succeed
To do that, we provide you access to ongoing training and support in the following areas:

  • Setting up office systems and day-to-day operations
  • Technology training, including operation of our software systems
  • Education in the Five Star Painting business systems, culture, and leadership development
  • Tested marketing systems, local marketing consulting, and access to marketing collateral
  • Finance management and business strategy
  • Ongoing training and development

Preferred Vendor Discounts
At Five Star Painting, as part of Neighborly, we are excited to offer franchise owners the opportunity for membership in our preferred vendor discount and rebate program. ProTradeNet is an asset that greatly differentiates us from our competitors. With the power of this program, we can offer supplies and products to our franchise owners at discounted prices not available to independent business owners. In addition, we offer a rebate program, which has resulted in millions of annual rebates systemwide.

Regional and National Conferences
Five Star Painting and Neighborly offer regional and national conferences to allow franchisees to gather, share and learn together. There's nothing quite as valuable as franchise owners talking and sharing success stories with each other. In addition, every year, the home office provides training on best practices and highlights emerging trends and new technologies.

Why The Painting Industry?
Industry research firm, IBIS World, predicts that continued expansion in the housing market, along with renewed growth in the nonresidential construction market, will likely drive steady growth in the painting industry over the coming years. In addition, overall economic growth is expected to help the commercial construction and industrial markets regain strength, boosting the need for painters for retail and office buildings.

Ideal Franchise Owner
You Want a Relatively Low-Cost Franchise in a High Demand Industry?
If you have been searching for a franchise opportunity with minimal training requirements, relatively low startup costs, and that serves an industry with consistent consumer demand, look no further than the painting industry.

While many home service industries require advanced technical skills, higher-level education, and expensive equipment to get started, joining the painting industry is a relatively low-pressure endeavor for a soon-to-be franchisee.

And with a Five Star Painting franchise, you won't be holding the brush or climbing on scaffolding. Instead, our unique and established approach where our franchise owners contract the painting work to reputable, established painters allows you to remain focused on growing your business.

The System
The Five Star Way
You’ll likely encounter many options when opening your own painting business or growing your current one. To build success and achieve a more balanced lifestyle, you’ll need an exceptional set of tools. Five Star Painting’s supportive franchise system will help you secure the time, freedom, and possibilities you’ve been looking for — all wrapped up in one painting service franchise opportunity.

The Value of Neighborly
A Family of Top Franchises
Five Star Painting is proud to be a part of Neighborly, which is a community of independently owned and operated franchise businesses focused on repairing, maintaining, and enhancing properties. We began as Dwyer Group 40+ years ago, launching with a single home services brand. Today, we’re the world’s largest home services franchisor of 19 brands and nearly 5,000 franchises collectively serving 10 million+ customers across nine countries.

Though Neighborly is a large franchise system, our culture is close-knit with a family business atmosphere. We’ve successfully developed an effective franchise business model that works well for everyone involved, and one of the reasons why is because we encourage feedback from our franchise owners and invite them to participate in corporate-level decisions. We attribute our continued growth to this culture, and to teaching and upholding our company's values.
