Color World Painting Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2024


In 2022 Color World Housepainting joined our new family with Authority Brand and is now Color World Painting.

 5 Businesses in 1: While there are several franchise opportunities that offer painting, none provide the ancillary services Color World has spent years perfecting. We offer power washing, gutter installation, holiday lighting, minor drywall and carpentry repair making us a one-stop home improvement shop for our customers.  With revenues derived from both residential and commercial projects.

Outstanding Economics: Our 5 different revenue streams present owners with unlimited potential to generate strong returns. Our 2021, Item 19 shows our top Franchise Owner generated $986,334 in revenues.  We have maintained strong year over year growth with 141% for 2020 over 2019.  In 2021 we opted to restructure territories resulting in fewer active territories, successfully growing 2021 over 2020 28%.

Personal Autonomy: We have built a successful system that empowers owners to operate their business Monday-Friday, 7:30 am to 4:30 pm; affording them the work and life balance they desire.  And with our national call center, leads are managed 24/7 making sure every opportunity is responded to and estimations booked per your schedule!

Quick Ramp-Up Time: We are a home-based business, meaning Franchise Owners will not spend time locating real estate, negotiating a lease, or waiting on a buildout. Because of this, and because we have spent over 20 years refining the concept, we are ready for owners to start generating money in 8-12 weeks from signing an agreement! 

Management of Minimal Employees: Since the Franchise Owner does not perform the services themselves, they can initially manage jobs on their own using sub-contracted crews. As they begin to scale, they will only need one office member for every 3-4 full-time crews.

Buying a Franchise Guide: What is a Franchise Disclosure Document?

When evaluating a franchise opportunity, reading and understanding the current version of their FDD is a necessity. Considering the benefits of franchising, such as established brand recognition and support from the franchisor, it's important to also take into account franchise fees and franchising royalty fees. Since most franchisors are privately owned companies, the current versions of their FDDs are typically not available unless requested directly from them.
