Our student managers and their crews take pride in helping homeowners realize the potential of their homes and, as a company, we are dedicated to motivating and teaching students how to realize their own potential. College Pro's energetic student entrepreneurs learn real-world business skills and homeowners receive a quality job that gives new life to their home's exterior.
Our Services / History
A college student founded College Pro Painters in Thunder Bay, Ontario, in 1971, giving other college students a chance to pay for their schooling and to secure post-graduation careers. That makes us the original student-run painting and window-cleaning company. More than four decades later, we treat nearly 25,000 homes annually with our interior and exterior house painting and window cleaning services. Currently, College Pro operates in local communities across 28 U.S. states and 7 Canadian provinces.
In 2006, after more than 30 years in business with the College Pro red checkmark, we refreshed our logo to something that better speaks to our vision and values, and the essence of who we are.
At College Pro our core purpose is “together, realizing potentials.” We see our company as the coming together of potentials: the potential in our student franchisees and their crews; the potential of the home which houses our customers’ most cherished things – the people they love and the treasures and memories of their lives; and, finally, the potential that exists for learning and growth when we meet you. These three potentials are recognized in the new logo as three parts of one line, in three different shades of blue, because to us blue means the open sky, and our openness to possibilities is one of our chief values.
Our Difference - Why College Pro?
College Pro offers an encouraging workplace for young entrepreneurs and provides quality services and experiences for our customers. We invest in and believe in the potential of our young student entrepreneurs, so that they are empowered to run their own businesses in local communities and to become tomorrow’s leaders.
