360° Painting Primed for Record Growth in 2018
Residential and commercial painting franchise continues unrivaled growth, Looks to add 60 new locations.
February 20, 2018 // Franchising.com // CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - According to the Remodeling Futures Program at the Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University, the level for annual spending for home remodeling and repairs is expected to reach nearly $340 billion nationally by early 2018. With eyes wide open, 360° Painting, one of the nation’s fastest-growing residential and commercial painting franchises, looks to nearly double its national footprint by the end 2018.
The Charlottesville-based concept, which recently claimed the No. 287 spot on Entrepreneur magazine’s annual Franchise 500® list and was ranked the No. 1 franchise in the “Painting” category, seeks to provide business ownership opportunities to hundreds of individuals worldwide through its franchise opportunity.
With more than 76 locations open and operating in 26 states and Canada, 360° Painting hopes to open as many as 60 new units in 2018. According to founder and CEO Paul Flick, the expansion will be accomplished exclusively through franchising.
“360° Painting is a proven concept built on a foundation of 20 years of leadership and management experience,” said Flick. “We’ve seen great success thus far and as the brand continues to expand, we look forward to bringing our professional painting services and eye-catching results to homeowners and business owners everywhere. As we plan our next growth phase, we look forward to beginning our search for enthusiastic franchise partners to lead 360° Painting’s worldwide expansion.”
While studying at The University of Windsor, Flick got into the painting business as a student painting employee during the summer months. Upon graduating and beginning a successful corporate career with Coca Cola, Flick soon felt called by his entrepreneurial spirit to create his own company. Three brands later, Flick is now the founder and CEO of Premium Service Brands, and leads multiple home services franchise systems that operate on an international scale: 360° Painting, Pro-Lift Garage Doors, and Handyman Pro.
Founded in 2005, 360° Painting prides itself as the go-to resource for all things commercial and residential painting - Residential Interior & Exterior Painting, Commercial Painting (i.e. commercial properties, homeowners associations, shopping centers, universities, schools, offices, restaurants, hospitals, municipal buildings, and more), Deck Painting & Staining, Fence Painting & Staining, Concrete Staining, Garage floors and other property services.
“Every year, homeowners invest billions of dollars to update the look of their homes,” Flick said. “360° Painting helps business and homeowners turn their vision into a vibrant reality. When you choose professional painting services from 360° Painting, you’re choosing the confidence that comes with premium-quality paints and a proven painting process.”
To augment the company’s expansion, Flick is looking for franchise partners who are much like himself, motivated and driven. Including a franchise fee of $60,000, the initial investment to open a 360° Painting franchise ranges from $76,655 to $123,700. Each franchisee owns an exclusive territory with a minimum of 100,000 homes.
“We want to remind homeowners and business owners that painting should be an enjoyable process, and when the job is complete, they should feel confident with their new look. 360° Painting is an established, top quality brand that can offer upfront costs, premium-quality paints, expert color consultation and a final walk through to ensure a perfect job.
