What it means to be a Christian-based Franchise
From a franchise standpoint, most concepts in the paint service sector are focused on a general market approach versus LIME’s high-end luxury paint niche. They are also very limited in the services offered and stick mainly to paint, whereas LIME does more than paint. In fact, none of the five largest painting service franchise concepts are niched to service the high-end luxury paint market. Within the non-franchise sector, the industry as a whole is very fragmented, leaving consumers with inconsistent and unreliable service options.
CertaPro Painters: CertaPro Painters are the most established painting franchise and take on a general market approach specializing in paint.
Five Star Painting: Five Star Painting is a member of the Dwyer Group and is a general market approach that specializes in paint.
Fresh Coat Painting: Fresh Coat Painting is focused on a general market approach that specializes in paint. Fresh Coat Painting offers 6 revenue streams in their concept.
WOW1 Painting: Wow1 Painting is tailored towards a general market approach specializing in paint. Wow1 Painting looks to put large teams on projects to get the job done quickly - 1 day.
360 Painting: 360 Painting is also focused on the general market and specializes in paint.
Business as Mission is more than business as usual.
Being a leading service expert in LIME’s field of business is expected. Rather, it is LIME’s priority on people that makes them special. LIME is a people business. Some may refer to LIME’s love for people as a culture that reflects family, community, or a tribe. As a Christian-based franchise, the company as a whole aims to live out values of faith, love, integrity and stewardship.
This motto of business as mission being more than business as usual is reflected in the acronym that makes up LIME - Love, Integrity, Mission, and Excellence.®. In fact, LIME’s catch phrase GET LIMED® stands for their employee core values of Gratitude, Enthusiasm, Tenacity, Love, Integrity, Mission, Excellence and Discipline.
Christian-based Franchise Company.
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.
More than Profits.
Of course, being in business is about being profitable. In fact, there is often confusion that in order to be profitable you must be unethical. For LIME it is quite the contrary as the focus is on the people who make up LIME. This translates into employees who reflect that culture in the form of service expertise and exceptional customer service. LIME is a values driven organization that emphasizes people and relationships. Creating a company culture that reflects LIME’s values of Love, Integrity, Mission, and Excellence is at the core of what makes LIME special.

Early Adopter Skillset: Salesmanship, Entrepreneurialism, and Tech Oriented.
Skillset is important for the owner of a franchise. The wrong skills can lead to frustration and underwhelming performance, but the right skillset can look quite the opposite. LIME franchise owners should have strong sales acumen and be values-driven. LIME’s founding franchisees, also known as early adopters, should be entrepreneurial minded as they will be trailblazing the franchise system along with LIME’s founder and support team. The first ten franchisees should be owners who want to shape and mold an evolving franchise company. Ultimately, the first ten franchisees have an opportunity to demonstrate more of an entrepreneurial spirit.
Due to LIME’s focus on using technology in the field to deliver clients a better experience while also driving efficiencies, franchise owners should be technology proficient as well.
A Rising Tide Raises All Ships.

It is the combination of a service that is needed in the the high-end luxury market, in conjunction with the growing high-end luxury market, that creates an opportunity worth taking a strong look at. Ask yourself, “Is it time that I stop talking about building a legacy, or is it time that I actually start building one for myself?” By becoming a LIME franchise owner you could be given the gift of taking ownership and pride in building a business.
