Fresh Coat Painters Opens in Tampa Florida

Oct 27, 2010, 12:04 ET from Fresh Coat Painters

CINCINNATI, Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Fresh Coat Painters is proud to announce the opening of a new franchise in Tampa Florida. Ross Childers, a Tampa resident, opened Fresh Coat Painters on October 1.  

Mr. Childers holds a degree in construction management and has worked in the painting industry and in restaurant management. Those positions offered valuable experience in business management and an inside look at the everyday workings of the booming, yet highly fragmented, $30 billion painting industry. Purchasing a Fresh Coat franchise, Childers says, just made sense.  "As the business owner, I determine my schedule and set my pace," he says. "I love the freedom of that."

Quick to give credit to his Fresh Coat franchise consultant, Childers says the consultant answered every question and provided just the right amount of support and guidance. "I like the way Fresh Coat is structured particularly their emphasis on teaching franchisees how to hire wisely, how to successfully market the business, and the availability of their operations department," he says. That availability is a point Fresh Coat management is proud of. Says Fresh Coat CEO, Ralph Martin, "As a new franchisee, it's very reassuring for them to pick up the telephone and have an experienced, knowledgeable person from our operations team to talk with."

Childers says he's pleased to be further ahead than he'd planned and extremely satisfied with his employees and the residential and commercial jobs he's continuing to book.  "I'm still up at 6 a.m.," he confesses, "but now it's for myself. I'm working on my business—not in it. And that makes all the difference."
