Five Star Painting Adds New Location in Gainesville, Florida

Business owner, Vito Leccese, opens doors of new painting business in October.

Gainesville, FL, October 25, 2012 --( Five Star Painting just opened its newest locally owned franchise under the ownership and direction of Vito Leccese in Gainesville, Florida, this month.

Five Star Painting’s fourth Florida location will serve the Gainesville area. Leccese decided to embark on his new business venture after spending most of his career in the automotive industry. His entrepreneurial enthusiasm and passion for serving others qualify Leccese to provide the best-personalized customer service to the Gainesville community.

“I had been in the automotive field all my life and felt I had reached my pinnacle,” Leccese said. “I wanted to run my own business and felt my best bet in this economy would be to go with a franchise. [Five Star Painting] has the experience, support and formula that can help a regular guy like me be a success.”

The unique blend of his work history in the service industry, experience as a local homeowner, service manager and parent gives Leccese the necessary insight needed to understand customer needs, manage painting crews and grow a flourishing business.

"The two largest investments an average person will make in their lives will be their car and their home,” Leccese said. “With my previous automotive experience and now with [Five Star Painting], I will have had the benefit of relating and servicing people in both of these investments.”

Leccese lives in Gainesville with his wife and son and knows the significance a home holds for a family or individual. After exploring several options in the franchise industry, Leccese’s understanding of home improvement was ultimately what led him to bring a Five Star Painting franchise to the Gainesville community.

“One of the reasons I chose Five Star Painting is because they really recognize the value of color in people’s lives,” Leccese said. “Painting is about much more than paint. The right color can transform a room from a ho-hum space to a place family and friends like to be. I’m excited to help people find their color and create an environment that reflects who they are."

Five Star Painting specializes in interior/exterior painting, deck and fence refinishing, staining and wallpaper.
