Hester Painting & Decorating Launchse High-end Painting Franchise

Wednesday, July 25, 2007

Homeowners across the country may soon have their houses painted by America's finest painting and faux finishing company. Hester Painting & Decorating, leader in painting, faux finishing and wall covering installation, introduces the nation's first and only high-end painting franchise, which will be modeled on the company's successful locations in the Chicagoland area. Each franchise will offer an array of faux and decorative finishes such as Venetian plaster, faux alligator skin and metallic glaze washes and feature the signature Hester showroom with more than 30 full-size walls of specialty finishes.

Unlike most painting contractors that focus on either painting or faux finishing or wallcovering, Hester Painting & Decorating is expert in all three. The company is franchising its one-stop shop for homeowners and designers to meet consumer demand for more options in painting and decorative finishing. Fueled by the popularity of home improvement shows, spending on home renovation and beautification is at a record $170 billion annually according to Entrepreneur magazine, and latest statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau estimate the value of the painting and paper hanging industry alone to be $13 billion.

"We already travel nationwide when our clients want our top-notch services at their homes in other cities. We've found there are not enough trained professional painters who focus on customer service and who have the expertise to create the looks customers are seeking. We intend to fill that void with the very best in painting and faux finishing by offering our Hester-exclusive finishes and high-quality craftsmanship to homeowners and interior designers across the country," said Steve Hester, president of Hester Franchising LLC.

Hester Painting & Decorating is looking for franchise purchasers nationwide with business acumen, and prior painting experience is not necessary. The company provides an extensive training program, proprietary operations manual and estimating software as well as a network of key suppliers and vendors through the Hester Preferred Vendor Program. Sales are capped at five franchises in the first year of the offering in order to focus as much attention as possible on the successful launch of each.

An active member of the Painting and Decorating Contractors of America (PDCA), Hester Painting & Decorating was recently listed as one of the best in the world by top designers and architects for decorative painting and wallpapering in House & Garden magazine's Designers' Best 07 Resource Directory. The 39-year-old company has received numerous national awards and has been featured in such media outlets as Architectural Digest, House Beautiful, the Chicago Tribune and WGN News at Noon. Founder Tom Hester was recently named top honoree in the article, "Who's Who In The Painting Industry" by American Painting Contractor magazine.

Hester Painting & Decorating has been providing homes and high-profile commercial establishments in the Chicagoland area with high-end painting and decorating services since 1968. Widely regarded as a leader in the fields of painting, faux finishing and wall covering installation, Hester Painting & Decorating utilizes an enormous repertoire of finishes and techniques to create unique environments for its clients.
