Fresh Coat Painters Extends Professional Painting Services into West Austin, TX and Surrounding Areas

After looking for a small business that suited their skills, Kelly and Sarah Ross recently opened Fresh Coat Painters of West Austin.

Austin, TX (PRWEB) August 21, 2013 - As an accountant, Sarah Ross understands facts and numbers. When it came to planning her future, along with her domestic partner, Kelly Ross, Sarah knew she was ready to use her knowledge and experience in her own small business.

They researched various franchises before deciding to launch Fresh Coat of West Austin because of its low initial investment costs, short training time, flexible time requirements, and “tried and proven” business structure. As well, the corporate staff and its support of franchise owners on a national level was equally impressive, she noted.

“We really like the concept of painting done right,” Sarah said. “Everybody at Fresh Coat is working to make customers happy across the nation.”

With Fresh Coat owners have a range of corporate offerings that support their clients and make the process smoother, including a 24/7 call center, proprietary EPIC estimating system, Paint Now-Pay Later same-as-cash financing, Automatic Touch-Up for businesses, and fund-raising opportunities for charities.

Open since May, the Ross’ have already hit the ground running, completing both interior and exterior jobs, along with a blend of residential and commercial projects. The most gratifying aspect, Sarah said, is observing the client during the final walk-through. “It’s great fun doing that final walk-through with the customer and seeing them so happy at the end,” she said. “It’s what it’s all about.”

Fresh Coat owners hire their own employees and never rely on subcontractors. Sarah and Kelly, an operating room nurse, found their lead painter through contacts at Sherwin-Williams. Most of their painters are women, something of a rarity in the home improvement industry. “I’m proud to be a women-owned business and proud to have women on my team,” Sarah said.
