When you buy into a successful business like Painter1, you are buying into a reputable, established and successful brand. Painter1 is a leader in the industry with its owner-focused business system. Some of Painter1’s unique features include: owners receive a part of the 10% owner’s equity pool of the franchise system, territories are not restricted by zip codes nor households, no Call Center is required, our state of the art software/CRM is 100% in-house and automates the sales process and lead management and more!

Painter1 was founded by the original founder of Five Star Painting and the former Director of Marketing for Five Star Painting. Together the two set out to create a franchise system that caters to the franchisee. “Everything we do at Painter1 is designed to empower the Franchise Owner and give the owner everything he/she needs to succeed. Many of the tactics we implement at Painter1 are unconventional compared to the big guys but it’s with purpose.

The Experience and Tactics to Help Owners Succeed

At Painter1, we decided that we don’t want to be the typical corporate stiffs that are removed from the day-to-day of operating a painting business. We seek to eliminate the “Us vs. Them” mentality that is ever-present in franchising. Our team has worked to grow and improve as 2nd largest painting franchise company in the world today. We have tackled many issues along the way, and our goal is to build the strongest painting franchise brand in the industry. We heard time and time again from owners who were repressed by the very company they had entrusted with their success. As a result, several of the policies we implement at Painter1 may seem unconventional, however, this is because we are fully committed to owner’s success. Everything we do, from giving 100% of our paint rebates back to our owners, to eliminating restrictive zip code territory rules, and much more, are set in place because we first and always ask ourselves the question, “how can we better help our owners succeed?”

If you are looking into starting a painting business or for a chance to succeed in a fully supported owner role in the profitable painting franchise industry, reach out to Painter1 today.

Fantastic experience with Lisa and her team. They showed up on time every day, finished by the expected date, and the result was incredible. The pricing was competitive with other quotes, but Lisa stands behind her work with a reasonable warranty (2 years), plus she's licensed & insured.

Lisa was great to work with. Very professional and makes sure to make the client happy. Mike was our painter for our office. Did an amazing job. Was on time, neat, and went the extra mile to make sure it was perfect. First time using them to paint our office room. Would like to use in the future and recommend them. Thanks

On time everyday. Fair estimate. Moved and put back furniture. Draped every thing. Clean up was efficient. Jeff Funk, owner, came back today for additional touch up and is currently preparing estimate on the 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, trim and doors for next year. Could not be more pleased with him and his crew. Highly recommend Painter 1. šŸ˜€šŸ‘

Once again Lisa and her team did an amazing job painting the interior of my house. It has 12 ' ceilings so that requires experienced professionals. No hassle, and no worries that the work will be done in time.

We were so impressed with Painter1. The team was amazing and always arrived early. They were so detailed in their work and they were more than we could have hoped for. I would hire them again for any painting project and would recommend them to anyone without hesitation. They are certainly the best! Thank you, Lisa and Painter1 Team!

I had an excellent experience with Painter1. I was first impressed with the quote I received. It was a very good price. Then when they came out the first day they power washed the part of my older fence that was kinda moldy. Then they came out the next day when it was dry and stained the fence, being very careful to wrap poles and trees that were not to be painted. They were super efficient and not a spot left unpainted. They were also nice and quiet, no loud music, just very respectful of our space. Iā€™m hoping to use them again for future projects. Special shout out to Oscar for making sure everything was planned out organized. He made sure we liked the paint on a test area before going through the whole project. Anna was one of the painters and I really liked her work as well as the other painter who Iā€™m sorry to have not caught the name of. Use Painter1 of Austin! They are great!
