Franchisee makes a difference in Seattle

Posted On July 18, 2014

When Magnolia homeowner Clay Newlin, decided to create a clean and modern look for his recently purchased home, he turned to College Pro Painters, and Franchise Owner Trey Cranney, for his exterior house painting.

Clay liked that College Pro Painters is a business managed and crewed by mostly college students. Trey Cranney, a junior in the business school at Gonzaga University, painted with College Pro Painters last summer.  After undergoing a through and rigorous selection process, Trey was chosen to lead the Queen Anne and Magnolia area College Pro Painters’ franchise. Trey is learning hands-on the ins and outs and ups and downs of running a small business.

"It's rewarding to take what I am learning in my business classes and apply that to helping homeowners receive a high quality paint job and experience. I love the customer relations part of my work," said Trey.

College Pro Painters provides intensive training for its franchise owners, and, as a 41 year old program developing entrepreneurs, invests and stands behind delivering a guaranteed top quality product.

Great work Trey!
