New Hampshire's First Five Star Painting Location Opening in Derry

Local owner, Georges Harb, leaves construction industry, enters painting world.

Derry, NH, June 21, 2013 - ( - Georges Harb opens the doors of New Hampshire’s first Five Star Painting franchise this month, just in time to take on all of Derry’s summer house-painting needs. After recording nearly 30 years in construction and management, Harb has decided to start a new venture of his own in the service-based industry, this time in providing professional painting services to local homeowners and businesses.

“I have spent the bulk of my career providing construction services for a variety of clients,” Harb said. “My service-centric background combined with years of management experience have both prepared me for this new endeavor, and I am excited to serve the residents of my community with Five Star Painting in Derry.”

Five Star Painting’s mission to change the perception of the painting contractor by providing professional and dependable painting crews intrigued Harb, who is no stranger to servicing both his own community of nearly two decades, as well as places abroad.

“I had the opportunity to work with the United States Army in Afghanistan as part of a private company providing construction services there,” Harb said. “I’ve always found satisfaction in offering services to others, but I’ve never had the opportunity to operate as my own entity and provide home improvement services to my own community.”

Harb and his highly trained crew of painting professionals are welcomed aboard by Five Star Painting’s CEO, Scott Abbott, who is excited about the company’s expansion in New Hampshire.

“Georges is joining a family of franchisees who have all left some part of their lives in order to start a new exciting chapter in small business management and home improvement services,” Abbott said. “The amazing thing our franchisees find is that their lives improve as they help improve the lives of others by coloring their world. At Five Star Painting, we go beyond painted walls. I’m excited for Georges to be a part of this great company.”
