Meet Your Golden Painters!
Lucas Goree - Owner
I first started with Five Star in 2017. Prior to this, I first started out working many jobs as a laborer but was fortunate to find an area that worked for me: plumbing. For four years I was an apprentice honing my skills on residential and commercial construction projects which included operating backhoes, skids steers, and the like. The hard work I put forth in this would prepare me for the next chapter in my life. I jumped at the opportunity to join a small business during its start-up phase and this would prepare me for the position I am in now. I first started off as a mover/driver for Black Belt Movers. What started with one truck and 3 employees turned into three trucks and 9 employees, then 14 trucks and 45 employees. As the company grew so did my position within the company. From mover, I worked my way into the shop manager. As we expanded into multiple locations in different states, I was promoted to Operations Manager with the task of training the location managers and their crews with having the same type of love and dedication I had, scheduling which trucks and which crews did what jobs. This small company that started with 3 people has now turned into a multi-million dollar company and I can proudly say I am an owner of Black Belt Movers.
Being a Five Star owner means everything to me. I have literally given everything I have to my profession and see what it has led is unreal. Being a high school dropout and now, owning a franchise is the ultimate payoff. It just keeps getting better. I have the means and knowledge to help others achieve their life goals and to really make sure they succeed.
In my free time, I love to cook BBQ! My grill and smoker have a special place in my heart. I have a loving girlfriend that is my rock. I have a 18 year old girl that is in college. I have a fantastic family that is so supportive. I have three nephews and a niece. They all mean the world to me.
