Like many franchise owners, Greg Taylor became a CertaPro Painters franchise owner as a second career. A former IT specialist and project manager with a background in chemistry and business, Greg has experience doing business across the state of Arkansas. Franchising was the perfect second career for Greg because he wanted more control over his future.
In addition to a prolific career in IT, Greg is also an avid home renovator. When looking into franchising, Greg loved CertaPro Painters because it was a natural extension of what he loves to do – making homes more beautiful. Being a CertaPro Painters owner allows Greg to combine his passions and make a living. Greg can leverage his skills and experience to help other people, both customers and his employees.
It’s meaningful for Greg to be able to build jobs in his community. Greg’s employees aren’t just painters or sales associates, they’re family. Providing opportunities for employees to grow has been a gratifying experience. Greg invests in his people, providing professional development and opportunities for growth. “The best talent is local,” Greg says.
The investment in people doesn’t just mean helping people grow their income but also grow their careers. It’s clear in franchising that the more work you put into something determines how much you get out of it. Greg emphasizes that principle to his painters.
