LIME Painting Generated Roughly $5.5 Million In Its First Four Years

Now, we’re looking to continue this success with new Franchise Owners.

IN THE BEGINNING…

Founder and CEO of LIME Painting, Nick Lopez, graduated high school, left Colorado as a first-generation college student, and headed to Michigan State University. Nick was planning on walking onto the wrestling team as a way to pay for his college tuition and cost of living. Unfortunately, upon his arrival on campus, Nick realized that a wrestling scholarship was at least a couple of years away. Needing a way to afford everything, Nick decided to hang up his wrestling shoes and embark on an entrepreneurial journey.

By the time he was 19, Nick had already founded his first painting company, Spartan College Painters, LLC. From that summer on, Nick would paint homes as a way to pay for tuition, books, and cost of living. As time began to pass, Nick realized that he was developing a real passion and real love for his new craft. It was during his third year as the owner of his own business that Nick began to understand that the past three years of painting didn’t have to be his last and that a future in the industry was something that made sense for him. With hard work, a willingness to serve, and a little luck, Nick happened to stumble upon a massive need in the market as high-end properties and clients were struggling to find a consistent, high-quality painting company that also provided custom coatings and restoration solutions. It was from this moment on that Nick began to focus on running a business that would blow past the status-quo.

Nick used his five years at Michigan State University as a way to refine and fine-tune his existing business model. After finishing his degree, Nick and his soon-to-be wife decided to move back to Colorado to start their family. It wasn’t long after they completed their move that Nick launched LIME Painting in Denver as a way to establish the same, scalable model that he had developed in East Lansing. Since his launch, and in the first four years of operation in Colorado, LIME Painting has surged past $5.5 million in revenue. It soon became abundantly clear that Nick needed to share this model with the rest of the country which is why the decision was made to open the business up to franchising.

Today, with LIME Painting, the United States now has a brand that understands how to deliver a consistently amazing painting experience to high-end homeowners.

MATTHEW SNIDER SHARES WHAT IT MEANS TO BE THE FIRST LIME FRANCHISE OWNER

 

WHAT MAKES LIME
PAINTING DIFFERENT?

LIME Painting is a company that consistently is raising the bar when it comes to the Home-Improvement Industry. Instead of following the status-quo of other painting companies, we’ve made it a point to create and set a new standard in terms of client relations by consistently delivering high-quality service and flawless customer service. We’re constantly listening to what the customer has to say and we’ve built a solution-driven model for our affluent customers. LIME Painting focuses solely on high-end homes and businesses in the market and has created a unique opportunity that has virtually ZERO competition with other painting franchise options.

Here are some other differentiators that set LIME Painting apart:

More Than Paint

Over the years, we’ve realized that custom properties have many different surfaces that experience wear and tear and need to be refinished and maintained. From new construction to repainting and even complete restoration, LIME is prepared and capable of taking on an extensive scope of work and completing it all on time and on budget, regardless of how complicated or difficult the job.

Customized Approach

All of our recommendations are tailored to complete the job correctly and efficiently. We also understand that no two jobs are alike, which is why we have included 15 different services into our repertoire. This amount of offerings is a huge competitive advantage when a consumer is comparing a single paint bid to all of the services offered by LIME.

Customer Consultation

At LIME Painting, our customer demographic is very different than other painting companies. Since our Franchise Owners are speaking with a more affluent consumer base, we understand that educating our customers is key to booking jobs. Due to this, we developed our business model to incorporate the added value of a one-on-one consultation with a LIME expert which allows our clients to make an educated decision about their home from a painting and contracting standpoint.

Technology Backed Turnkey Options

When customers book a job with LIME they can rest assured that we will manage the entire process from start to finish. We will provide our clients with clear and concise communication, but we make it a point to ensure that they don’t have to worry about being “hands-on” customers. At LIME, we pride ourselves on assessing, advising, and auditing all aspects of our painting company and our related production, making this an overall seamless process.

Loyalty Membership

We provide our customers with a customer loyalty program where they earn exclusive benefits and access to things such as additional warranty coverage, free professional color consultation, rewards points, bi-annual audits, and more. With 20% of our customers conducting repeat business with LIME, within a year, this is a huge, mutually-beneficial perk not commonly found at a painting company!

OUR MODEL

THE PROBLEM: THE SUPERMAN MODEL 

The Superman Model consists of a one-man operator who wears all the hats within their painting company. Unfortunately, his best hat is doing the work and not managing the business. Due to the limited amount of resources and lack of knowledge this model presents, the customer is left frustrated with deadlines unmet, promises unfulfilled, and budgets thrown out the window. As a result, customers have a very low expectation for paint contractors. In fact, customers dread the thought of needing to get a paint project completed. This inconsistent and unreliable model has left the door open to a huge opportunity for a solution that blows customers away.

THE SOLUTION: #GETLIMED

The LIME Painting model produces custom solutions for customers’ properties with quality at the forefront. Our model is backed by processes, roles, systems, and quality controls that deliver high consistency and are complemented by an over- the-top customer experience. The result is raving customers who love to GET LIMED!

The LIME Painting model applies direct customer feedback taken from the horror stories Nick heard while earning his business degree at Michigan State University. He has integrated the lessons he learned in his businesses classes and structured a company that thrives in the field and exceeds customer expectations.
