Primed For Growth

National Post:

Franchising must be in his blood: Vancouver entrepreneur Brian Scudamore took an idea to start a company in junk removal and built it into a $100-million-a-year industry-dominating franchise force – 1-800-GOT-JUNK – across Canada, the United States and Australia. Now he’s at it again.

Mr. Scudamore partnered with Jim Bodden, who started a summer painting company 22 years ago, to launch 1-888-WOW1DAY Painting in February. The company promises to paint the interior or exterior of a home or business within one day.

“It’s almost identical,” says Mr. Scudamore of his latest franchise venture. “When I looked for a second business as a so-called serial franchisor, I wanted something where I could leverage our marketing know-how [and] any relationships we created with our franchise partners in 1-800-GOT-JUNK.”
