ProTect Painters Offers An “Invest In Yourself” Opportunity.

Painting Franchise ProTect Painters Offers An “Invest In Yourself” Franchise Opportunity.
The Wall Street Journal warns that “Job Cuts Outpace Economic Decline”

Ann Arbor, MI – ProTect Painters franchise offers a remarkably easy way out of the unemployment crisis for displaced corporate executives with their “Invest in yourself” franchise program.

“The Wall Street Journal recently reported that ‘the job market is doing even worse than the overall economy…that deeper-than-expected joblessness could persist once the recession ends,’” said ProTect Painters’ President Wayne Scherger. “Jobs in corporate America may not be available even when the market turns.”

The ProTect Painters’ franchise model was built to attract corporate executives who had good paying jobs, but who have paid the price for jobs that have gone goodbye. “We say it’s time to invest in yourself. For an affordable investment, executives can own their own franchise and dust-off that desk in their corner (home) office,” says Wayne. “ProTect Painters is an all-cash business with no employees—owners contract with independent painting crews, putting people to work. The operation is turnkey from acquiring customers to estimating and invoicing. Best of all our executive owners set their own schedules, and enjoy a lifestyle few other business owners ever experience.”

Painting is a $30 billion industry and growing even in a down economy because, sooner or later, every home and business will need painting. For many people, their home is their single most valuable asset. Keeping it at market value creates built-in demand.

Additionally, home-service industries (e.g., residential painting, maid service, handyman, insurance restoration) are thriving due to a population that’s aging, is time starved, and traditionally relies on professionals for fix-it and cleaning projects around the house.

ProTect Painters is a member of the Service Brands International family of franchise concepts that includes maid franchise Molly Maid, handyman franchise Mr. Handyman and dry cleaning franchise 1-800-DryClean. For over 25 years, Service Brands has helped more than 1,000 individuals start their own businesses to reach their financial goals and to realize their lifestyle dreams.

“ProTect Painters is securely positioned for exciting growth all across the country. We’re at the right place and now is the right time for enterprising executives to invest in themselves,” says Scherger. “No more putting their future at risk, they’re building equity everyday for tomorrow. And, they’ll be working on their own, but not alone with the experienced support network that Service Brands is known and respected for.”
