Is a Merit Franchise Right for You?

At Merit Professional Coatings we know that success is not an accident. Success begins with a dream and having the fortitude to pursue that dream. That is how we started.

The commercial painting industry has a high failure rate for startup companies. They lack business acumen because they have never been trained properly. While many are good craftsmen they don't employ the necessary systems and management tools. The candidates we are seeking understand their importance and the value of a systematic approach to earning business. We have listed some questions that will let each of us know if we have a possible fit and should begin a conversation:

  1. Do you have experience in the painting and/or construction industry?
  2. Can you read plans or schematic drawings?  If not, do you have the capital to hire a professional estimator?
  3. Are you willing to follow clear and concise instructions that will lead to success when employed properly?
  4. Do you have sufficient start up capital or a 401K Plan you can borrow against?

If you answered yes to the above questions, we encourage you to Contact Us to begin the process of determining if this is a mutually beneficial fit. It is a tedious process. That is by design as successful candidates become an extension of Merit Professional Coatings and all that we represent. Click here to get the ball rolling.

Resource and Cost Assessment Systems

  • The key to running a profitable and high-quality painting project is knowing where you stand relative to a pre-established budget and schedule.
  • We teach you the essence of Project Management, which is knowing how much work you have completed relative to the budgeted cost of completing that work.
  • Our costs for labor and material are regularly entered into our job costing system for quick and easy reference. This information enables us to accurately monitor and staff our projects. It greatly reduces the risk of unforeseen expenses or project delays and allows us to identify issues before they get out of hand.
