About Our Franchisees

Franchise owners grow their business in affluent communities where value is perceived as quality versus the bottom line. As a result, franchise owners can build a premium brand that is perceived in their local market place as best in class. Franchise owners also benefit from rigorous launch training complimented by LIME Elite Academy, which focuses on state of the art sales, coatings, production, estimating, technology, and leadership skills, just to name a few. Franchise owners make an executive level salary while working on their business, and not in it. Once the business is established in the local market place, franchise owners focus on being a good steward with their profits by building a legacy for their family and giving back to the community.

LIME Painting is an owner-operator model that allows owners to take a step back within their business to actively manage the business once they master the business. Beyond a single location, franchisees can then pursue acquiring other territories and scaling those locations as a part of their portfolio.

LIME Painting is setup for multi-unit operators and regional developers with the exception that they must be an operator of the business until the Lime Painting processes and systems are mastered.
