Richard’s Painting Franchise vs. Every Other Painting Franchise

Richard’s Painting is a cut above the competition in more ways than one

If you’re researching painting franchise opportunities, determining which brands are a worthy investment is an integral part of the process.

You want to be certain that a brand’s business model is proven and offers unlimited scalability. You want to be sure that the service the brand provides is better than the rest of the industry. Finally, you want to be positive that a brand is committed to helping you thrive in business over the long-term.

In all of these ways and more, Richard’s Painting franchise measures up.

For more than 20 years, Richard’s Painting has built a brand people trust, with better quality and better services than other companies offer. Our point of emphasis is building relationships within communities and making those person to person connections that larger competitors simply don’t do. How do we do it? Richard’s Painting never hires subcontractors, which means we can bring the best talent and unparalleled customer service.

“A successful painting business is really about setting up a standard,” says Richard Gould, CEO and Founder of Richard’s Painting. “And if you’re able to deliver a great experience, you’re able to charge a higher price because your work is worth more. This is why we choose to hire employees rather than work with subcontractors. Your employees are loyal, they’re trained, and you know that they do great work.”

Offering the small town, community-based feel of a local painting company has resulted in the brand experiencing incredible growth year over year. Our franchisees benefit from running a company that is well respected and established in select markets, while at the same time, getting all the resources, brand recognition and industry expertise from the Richard’s Painting veteran team.

“I want to better the industry by helping entrepreneurs do this the right way by guiding them and nurturing them,” Richard says. “I want to be the mentor to the business owner. You’re not a franchise owner – you’re a business owner. And my job is to coach you to help you become successful.”

Industry studies show most painting franchises cost between $50,000 to $125,000 to start. At Richard’s Painting, we know how important it is for budding business owners to have low startup costs and as little barriers to entry as possible. That’s why we offer initial investments as low as $15,000, far below other competitors in the industry. And we make sure our franchisees are up in running in less than 60 days from signing contracts to get money coming in.

“I don’t know a business that’s as affordable to get involved in than Richard’s Painting franchise,” Gould says. “You can get started with one person and grow from there. To me, it’s the lowest cost with the biggest potential return.”

It’s no wonder that Richard’s Painting franchisees enjoy more than enough demand, incredible work-life balance, all while having smaller regions than their competitors. And now has never been a better time to invest, with the painting and coating market projected to grow from $150.76 billion in 2021 to $217.66 billion by 2028. As more Americans move into new homes and finally get around to remodeling projects, Richard’s Painting has been there to answer the call.

“Painting is a great business because millions of people hire painters every day,” Richard says. “Now is the perfect time to invest in Richard’s Painting because no matter the state of the economy, we’re always painting – it never stops. We want to be the premier painter in every community we’re in – and set the standard for quality work.”
