More from Wow 1 Day Painting


When you think of the painting industry, we’re willing to bet you can’t think of a household name. WOW 1 DAY PAINTING is changing that. We're building a brand in a massive industry—with a differentiated competitive advantage. In fact, we’re revolutionizing the way homes are painted, minimizing the disruption to homeowners by painting homes in just one day! It's a unique combination of speed, quality, and exceptional customer experience. The majority of our franchise partners have no experience in the painting sector—and they don’t need to. With the proven systems that made 1-800-GOT-JUNK? a multi-million-dollar brand, you’ll leverage your leadership and business skills to build a great team, WOW your customers… and create a legacy.

Imagine leaving for work in the morning and when you return, your home has been completely transformed. We make it easy, from start to finish, and we remove the disruption that is common in the painting industry. That's why our customers love us, and why we continue to see explosive growth in markets across North America.

Our story started in 1989, building 1-800-GOT-JUNK? into the world’s largest junk removal company... and we didn’t stop there. We scaled up and launched WOW 1 DAY PAINTING to continue disrupting the $100B+ home services industry with a model that works.

The majority of our franchise partners have no experience in the painting industry. What they do have are the same core qualities: They love to lead, they have a hunger to succeed, they’re not afraid of working hard, and they value exceptional customer service... and we’re looking for more awesome people just like them.
