"Once I purchased my Five Star Painting Franchise I was my own boss, experienced freedom with my schedule and had more time to spend with my family. Now my family and I enjoy a significant increase in income, and my wife and I can spend more of our time with each other, our children and grandchildren. Our traveling has increased significantly – more cruises, family visits out of state, and more husband and wife getaways. I have room to breathe and enjoy life much more."Mark Lambert
"As a business owner, you are always busy and your phone rings constantly. having a support staff like the call center handle all incoming inquiries and appointment scheduling is a huge relief. I wake up in the morning, check my schedule and see that... estimates have been booked for me all while I was busy doing other things. It gives me the time I need to run my business more effectively."Ryan Noles
