Striping-Painter Company Seek Franchisees

Wednesday, May 26, 2010

A painting company that applies striping to parking spaces nationwide is seeking contractor franchisees.

We Do Lines LLC, which bills itself as the first national parking-lot line-striping franchise, has four franchisees covering six territories and is seeking more.

The company, based in Ridgefield, Conn., was founded in February 2008 and added a fourth partner in April 2009. “With efficient systems in place, and a very strong first location, We Do Lines plans to expand nationally with a goal of reaching the 100-unit mark within the next three years,” the company said in a statement.

“There’s not one national parking lot striping company out there. The market is completely untapped,” said company president Chris Couri. “For a service with such high demand, we have created a concept that is efficient, reliable, eco-friendly (its Proprietary Stripe Green Initiative), and socially responsible (through its ‘Lines for Charity’ program).”

The company calls parking-lot striping “one of a business’s top priorities, as many establishments are required by contract and/or lease to re-stripe their parking lots every year.”

The company says it operates a “proprietary centralized command and control infrastructure” as well as a “Stripe Green Initiative” that uses low-VOC striping products.

Prospective franchisees “can expect start-up costs ranging from $77,000 to $134,000, with the leasing of a truck and equipment taking up the bulk of costs,” the company says. “While most franchisors search for someone with experience in the field as the ideal candidate, We Do Lines looks for someone who isn’t only able to operate the machinery, but additionally a businessperson who understands scalability, networking, and growing a business for themselves.”
