Advantages of owning a LIME Painting Boulder franchise
One of the greatest advantages of owning a LIME Painting sales and marketing franchise in Boulder is the proximity to the founding location in Denver. In fact, LIME Painting expanded to Boulder and established the market in 2017. As a result, we have existing brand exposure, a customer list, and strong subcontractor and supplier relationships within the Boulder market.
[Our existing high-end residential client portfolio in Boulder ranges from Dakota Ridge - Northbriar to Wonderland Lake to Newlands to Flagstaff and Devil’s Thumb - Rolling Hill.]
Additionally, due to the proximity of the founder and founding location in Denver, training and support will be logistically streamlined. From setting up the business processes and subcontractor and supplier networks, to growing a scalable sales force, LIME’s founder and support team will assist in launching the Boulder franchise location. Training via LIME Elite Academy will kick off at LIME’s headquarters and will be complemented with ongoing online adult learning during the launch of the Boulder location.
Christian-based franchise company: Love. Integrity. Mission. Excellence.®
As a Christian-based franchise company LIME is value-based, not religion-based. LIME is a business that represents more than just service excellence by also being purpose-driven. Within communities, the platform of power, resources, and influence that businesses obtain comes with a great sense of responsibility. For LIME, this responsibility is stewarded in a Christ-like manner. First and foremost, this stewardship is based on the premise that people come before profits. In essence, profits come as a result of a focus on our employees who go out into their communities and reflect the same selfless love and service that was stewarded upon them.
Low overhead business model
In addition to LIME’s fifteen revenue streams to maximize sales on each account, we also have a low overhead business model. Given that LIME is a service-based company, franchise owners can run the business out of their homes. Furthermore, franchise owners do not need to own and store paint and production equipment because the labor is subbed out to contractors who employ the labor and provide the equipment and supplies. From a promotional standpoint, franchisees will use the Mercedes Benz cargo van in the field to help grow the brand within their local communities.
Cloud-based business management platform--LIMEware
LIME’s cloud-based business management and communication platform--LIMEware--is a valuable component that increases the efficiency of the business. From production to sales, to marketing and finances, and subcontractor management, LIMEware allows franchise owners to better manage and scale their business through the effectiveness of technology. This platform also enables LIME’s support team to communicate and provide resources in real time so franchise owners can concentrate on building their business.
The objective is to provide a rigorous and robust training to jumpstart the business launch time in the Boulder location. Ultimately, LIME’s goal is to get you past break-even so that you can begin growing your company profits and equity.
Maximizing client value by specializing in fifteen revenue streams
No other serviced-based painting franchise offers the amount of revenue streams that LIME does. LIME offers fifteen revenue streams that include interior painting, exterior painting, faux painting, wood lacquer and staining, cabinet coatings, drywall texturing and removal, wall paper removal, deck restoration, masonry coatings, epoxy coatings, direct-to-metal coatings, grout work, carpentry, stucco/eifs/dryvit coatings and installation, and gutter replacement and repair.
These services range from restoring the substrate being painted or coated, to the actual paint and coatings applied to different substrates, and finally to services that hedge client investments in restoring their property, such as gutter replacement. This mix of services is necessary to do the job right while providing clients with maximum value. Most importantly, by doing more than paint, LIME doesn’t just tap into the $40 billion paint industry, we leverage the $300 billion home improvement industry as well.

Intentional track record
Nick Lopez, president and founder of LIME Painting, said: “Before choosing to scale LIME Painting via a franchise system, I was very intentional about how I generated $5.5 million in gross sales over the first four years of establishing the business in Denver and Boulder. I was careful not to grow too fast in order to maintain quality, while also establishing best-in-class economics to prove out our game-changing business model.”
It requires a special individual
Being one of the first franchisees within a franchise opportunity has many benefits. The most appealing benefits are the intentional resources, time, and effort devoted by the founder and support team to set the early franchisees up for success. An early franchisee has the opportunity to contribute to the direction of the brand as well as the strategy of the franchise as the organization is very adaptable at this early stage. Early franchisees also have a better chance to establish a role in the franchise advisory council which represents and gives voice to all of the franchisees as the system grows.
Being an early adopter requires a special individual who is able to exercise a spirit of entrepreneurialism more so than franchisees who enter the system later in the brand’s life cycle.
