Splash a little colour into people’s lives by opening a painting franchise. In this industry you will be responsible for painting the interior and exterior of homes and offices, or you might specialize in automotive painting. Other painting franchises also offer restoration services and work with leather, vinyl, and other materials to make them look good as new.It takes skill and precision to give something a good paint job, and it can also take long time to do it as one coat is never enough. You will need to apply several coats to get the final finish that your customers want to see. The chemicals in paints are hazardous, so scientists are always looking into creating new paints that are safer to use, and have less of an impact on the environment.
