ProTect Painters Primed to Coat Twin Cities with 15 Additional Painting Franchise Locations. Full-Service Painting Franchise Company Brightens Up Home and Businesses

Minneapolis, MN – ProTect Painters, a professional painting contractor franchise, specializing primarily in exterior, residential painting projects, is ready to brighten up even more Minneapolis/St. Paul homes and businesses by adding 15 additional franchise locations over the next three to five years, relieving area consumers of the common stress of painting projects.

ProTect Painters’ first location in the Twin Cities, owned by Ed Philpot, is celebrating one year of serving the community this June.

“We are thrilled to expand the ProTect Painters concept throughout Minneapolis and specifically in the Twin Cities,” said Wayne Scherger, President of ProTect Painters. “ProTect Painters is the solution for time-starved home owners in the Twin Cities who are coping with the stress of working longer hours than ever before to hold on to their jobs, and need someone to come in and handle its painting needs.”

Protect Painters was recently acquired by Service Brands International (SBI), the franchisor of household services category leaders Molly Maid maid franchise, Mr. Handyman handyman franchise and 1-800-DryClean dry cleaning franchise, to strengthen their lineup of branded in-home services, and provide its franchisees additional cross-referral opportunities. Under the SBI umbrella, the ProTect Painters concept is expected to grow to 200 units during the next five years.

“Painting is a $30 billion industry that’s primed for a powerhouse national brand,” said Alex Roberts, Vice President of Franchise Development of SBI. “The ProTect Painters franchise opportunity is appealing because, sooner or later, every home and business will need to be painted. The repaint cycle creates built-in demand.”

ProTect Painters franchise owners enjoy a residential and light commercial painting franchise business that offers owner flexibility, a proprietary Right Start training program, a Sales and Technology Center where ProTect Pros answer customer calls 24/7 to address service needs and schedule appointments, and an industry-first Customer Acquisition & Referral System—CARS that drives business to the franchise. The average cost to open a ProTect Painters franchise is approximately between $77,000 and $97,000.

ProTect Painters is a new member of the Service Brands International family of home-service franchise brands that over 25 years has earned a stellar reputation for integrity and mentoring people, helping hundreds of franchise owners to reach their financial goals and to realize their lifestyle dreams. 

“No other franchise system in the painting industry, and few within the franchise world, has the power, resources and commitment of a franchisor like Service Brands International, which will use its industry experience to provide innovative systems and services to facilitate the ProTect Painters franchise growth,” said Scherger. “ProTect Painters also ensures steady, reliable work for professional painting crews in the metro area."
