Color World Painting is an interior and exterior painting specialist catering to homes and businesses. The company has been painting houses and buildings since 1997, striving to employ only the most skilled workers and use nothing short of the best products available in the market.

Customers can take advantage of the company's range of services: carpentry, staining, power washing, drywall repair, gutter installation, and even holiday lighting installation. Color World Painting has made itself a one-stop shop dedicated to serving communities across the nation.

Why You May Want to Start a Color World Painting Franchise

Color World Painting believes in a life-work balance and has built its business model so franchisees may enjoy the perks this balance can offer: family, flexibility, and freedom. They offer absentee ownership, giving the franchisee the opportunity to be hands-off. They also allow for the potential of a home-based business, meaning that you may not even need to secure a storefront to open a Color World Painting franchise.

You don't need painting experience to be a franchisee. If you are a strong leader, outgoing and friendly, and family and growth-oriented, you may find the company's culture a good fit. Franchisees may also benefit from the seasonal nature of the work as opposed to year-round.

What Might Make a Color World Painting Franchise a Good Choice?

There are a lot of things about Color World Painting that may be appealing to franchisees. One is its ranking with Entrepreneur. Color World Painting has been ranked on Entrepreneur's Franchise 500 based on an evaluation of more than 150 data points in the areas of costs and fees, size and growth, franchisee support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability. It has also been named to Entrepreneur’s Top New Franchises list multiple times in recent years.

The company has fairly low investment requirements with a possibility of multiple streams of revenue. Multiple revenue streams make Color World Painting a unique franchise within the industry, with the potential for a franchisee to offer expertise in several areas. 

Another key benefit of the Color World Painting business model is its minimum employee requirement. For every three or four teams of paint crews, the company only requires franchisees to employ a single office worker to manage them. 

How Do You Open a Color World Painting Franchise?

If you want to open a Color World Painting franchise, you need to consider if you can meet the company's financial requirements, including an initial investment made up of a franchise fee and other startup costs. Franchisees will want to make sure they have enough capital available to cover additional ongoing fees, as well. These fees will include royalty fees or renewal fees. 

As you make your decision regarding whether to open a Color World Painting franchise, make sure you take time to explore the opportunity. Research the brand and your local area to see if a franchise would do well in your community. While competition is healthy, too much of it may not allow for the most possible growth.

Suppose everything works out in your favor and you become a Color World Painting franchisee. In that case, you could possibly benefit from the company's various types of support, from marketing to recruitment. Soon enough, you'll be painting your community in color!
