Merit Professional Coatings Franchise Opportunities

This is NOT a franchise for painters or those who want to paint.  It is a Construction Business Operating and Management System that just happens to use commercial painting and waterproofing as the vehicle to build an organization and earn considerable sums of money.

Merit Professional Coatings is a commercial painting and waterproofing subcontractor. 85% of our business is with commercial general contractors on new construction projects such as schools, office buildings, hospitals, airports, sports arenas, etc.  15% of our work is classified as maintenance painting and/or re-painting of existing buildings.  We only engage in commercial work. NO RESIDENTIAL. Merit has been in business since 1994 and the owners have been in the industry since 1986. Our annual sales have ranged from as little as $3,000,000.00 to as much as $12,000,000.00. And with an average 33% gross profit.


We are changing the stereotypical view of a painting contractor and replacing it with a professional businessperson who is a respected member of the business community. We employ sound business principles in the management of the company and use proven effective standard operating procedures in every aspect of the business. This approach has enabled us to create a superior model that is transferable, repeatable, and, best of all, highly profitable. Our franchise in Houston?s first job was a $623,000.00 project that came in at a 32% gross profit. The Jacksonville franchise completed $454,000.00 of work in it's first full year at a gross profit of 32%. 

In addition to commercial painting and waterproofing we engage in high performance epoxy flooring, textured coatings, traffic coatings, vinyl and fabric wallcovering, sandblasting and light industrial coatings.
