Painting Franchise Opens in Jonesboro
February 17th, 2017 by Laura Miller
When Keith Crooks of Brookland decided it was time to start his own business, he followed the advice of his accountant and contacted the A-State ASBTDC for assistance.
Crooks met with Center Director Laura Miller to discuss the feasibility of purchasing a franchise to start a painting business. Miller answered questions about business startup and assisted with the development of a loan proposal and financial projections.
With ASBTDC’s help, Crooks secured financing from First Security Bank, opened Five Star Painting of Jonesboro, and is bidding on residential and commercial jobs.
