New Owner Michael Ho bringing color to Lake Oswego and Tigard with painting franchise
LAKE OSWEGO, Ore. (Feb. 3, 2014) – Local resident Michael Ho opens a new Five Star Painting franchise this month, ready to bring fresh color to Lake Oswego, Tigard and the surrounding areas.
“Color breathes life and character into rooms and office spaces,” Ho said. “Painting is all about color and it can change your mood. Different rooms bring different character and I’m excited to bring new color to customers’ spaces.”
Graduating from Portland State University with a bachelor’s degree in finance, Ho looks to build upon his experience as a vending company owner and assistant buyer for a retail marketplace chain to grow a successful small business.
“Entrepreneurship has always been in my blood,” Ho said. “Joining a franchise system brings a great opportunity to network and learn from the experience of other franchise owners. I’m excited to bring a painting company to my local community and hope to provide excellent customer service.”
Five Star Painting is focused on capturing customers’ dreams and enhancing lifestyles through color. As part of an international franchise system, Five Star Painting strives to change the perception of the painting contractor by providing professional and dependable painting crews who are clean, on time and respectful of customers’ spaces.
“Ho is joining a family of franchisees who have all left some part of their lives in order to start a new, exciting chapter in small business management and home improvement services,” Five Star Painting CEO Scott Abbott said. “Our franchisees find satisfaction in providing reliable and professional painting services to their community, while adding new color to the lives of their customers.”
Five Star Painting specializes in interior and exterior painting for both residential and commercial projects, as well as deck and fence refinishing and staining.
