Five Star Painting Makes Monumental Firsts Alongside the Entrepreneur’s Source

Jim Kemp of Barrie Ontario becomes Five Star Painting’s first Entrepreneur Source lead from Canada to sign and the first to also use Five Star Painting’s in-house financing.

Springville, UT, July 02, 2010 --( Five Star Painting, Inc. is pleased to announce that Jim Kemp of Barrie, Ontario became not only one of Five Star’s newest franchisee, but also broke old international boundaries by becoming the first Entrepreneur Source franchisee from Canada ever signed, as well as the first Entrepreneur Source franchisee to utilize Five Star’s in-house financing mechanism.

While The Entrepreneur Source has clearly established itself in the United States as one of the nation’s top coaching companies bridging the gap between franchisors and enterprising franchisee prospects, Canada had, until now, remained untouched by the partnership of the two companies. Five Star Painting, Inc. is pleased to assist with this achievement. With established franchises in the US, Canada, Mexico, and recently Brazil, Scott Abbott, CEO of Five Star Painting says he is thrilled that they were able to support The Entrepreneur Source in their accomplishment.

“As one of the fastest growing franchises worldwide, and the number one ranked painting franchise in North America, Five Star has always accepted the challenge of developing international franchises. It is exciting to see Five Star’s growth and progress especially when it involves working with such a dedicated coaching company like The Entrepreneur Source,” Scott Abbot said.

After nearly eight months of courtship alongside his Entrepreneur Source coach, Jack Dawkins and Five Star representative, Chad Jones, Jim Kemp says he is excited to become a part of the Five Star Franchise team.

Regarding his choice to use Five Star Painting’s financing mechanism, he said, “This was a great opportunity for me to own and operate my own business. [I joined] a team of Franchise Partners where customer service and proven business concepts [will help me] reach my goals of success and quality of life.”

Five Star Painting, Inc. looks forward to working with The Entrepreneur Source and anticipates an increase in the number of new Franchisees in Canada and the US in the upcoming months.
