What Is the Richard’s Painting Franchise Business Model?

Richard’s Painting describes itself as a different type of painting franchise: “[W]e don’t go after low-end, price driven sales. We don’t force our owners to spend huge amounts on marketing. We don’t pull in any subcontractor we can get. We are unique and have a track record of making very successful and potentially high-margin painting franchises.”

Richard’s Painting brings a personable touch to the painting business. Rather than subcontracting, Richard’s Painting focuses on training and developing employees to provide top-notch service and a better overall customer experience. The goal is to shake hands with the clients, give sincere professional advice and make them feel like family.

Each Richard’s Painting location offers a wide range of residential and commercial services. In addition to its extensive painting services (interior, exterior and commercial), the brand also provides pressure washing, popcorn removal, drywall repair, and dock/deck staining services.
