Certified Public Accountant excited to open new Five Star Painting franchise.
RICHMOND, Va. – Native resident Sandra Winstead is opening a new Five Star Painting franchise in southeast Richmond this month, expanding the reach of Five Star Painting’s professional painting services in the Richmond region.

Five Star Painting has a system in place designed to help entrepreneurs grow a successful business and I’m excited to be a part of this company.”
Born and raised in Richmond, Winstead earned both a bachelor’s degree in accounting and an MBA from Virginia Commonwealth University. She hopes to benefit the local community with a quality painting company, while also providing new employment opportunities and charitable activities in the future.
