At a time when many franchise concepts are putting a halt on expansion, Painting franchise Fresh Coat Painters is implementing a new development rebate incentive program designed to maximize potential growth and offer attractive alternatives for entrepreneurs who may be discouraged by the current economic climate.

Offered to all qualified applicants, the benefits of the rebate incentive program include eligibility to qualify for 100 percent of the initial franchise fee and a cash rebate every 90 days during the first two years of operation. Rebates are paid to the franchise owner when a certain sales goal is met each quarter. This rebate incentive program applies to a single territory and is offered through March 31, 2010. This is the first time Fresh Coat has ever provided a rebate offer to potential franchises looking to become a new business owner in their market.

“By offering this incredible rebate incentive program to qualified candidates, we are reinforcing our commitment to expanding our proven franchise system and attracting hard working, driven individuals who are serious about owning a successful business that is recession resistant in a multi-billion dollar industry,” said Ralph Martin, President of Fresh Coat.
