Business ownership has always been a part of the plan for Grygoriy Tolmachov. But he knew he didn’t want to go through the process of launching an entirely new concept on his own. That’s why he decided to explore franchising while earning his MBA.
In his research, he came across Fresh Coat, the leading residential painting company in the country. After learning more about the brand’s services, he decided to apply to open his own franchise. As soon as he started talking to Fresh Coat’s corporate team, he knew it was the perfect opportunity for him.
“Right off the bat, it clicked. The corporate team at Fresh Coat has been instrumental in making my dreams of business ownership a reality,” said Tolmachov. “The support system they have in place for their franchisees makes all the difference. They’re incredibly responsive and have been with me every step of the way as I got my franchise off the ground.”
Tolmachov’s Fresh Coat franchise officially opened its doors for business in Orange County this summer, and it’s already seeing success. The response from the local community has been positive—consumers are already taking note of the brand’s commitment to quality. Tolmachov also says customers appreciate Fresh Coat’s ability to provide accurate estimates when starting a new job or project.
“The Fresh Coat brand name is well-respected and recognized by consumers. They know that when they come to us, they’re going to receive the best possible customer service and finished product,” said Tolmachov. “Fresh Coat has made it incredibly easy for me to transition to my new role as a local business owner. From helping me with management to providing me with the tools I need to effectively market my business, they’ve set me up for success.”
