The founders of 1-888-WOW-1DAY! Painting are Brian Scudamore and Jim Bodden. Brian is best known for creating the world’s largest junk removal service, 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, a global company with over 200 franchises in North America and Australia. The concept for Brian’s new company fell in his lap when he needed to get his house painted in 2010. Brian met Jim Bodden, the owner of One Day Painting who said he could complete his job in one day. When Brian arrived at his home at the end of the appointed day, he found that the job had been completed, was of high quality and there wasn’t any mess. It was then that Brian knew he had found his new home service business. By the end of 2010, Brian had bought Jim Bodden’s company and 1-888-WOW-1DAY! Painting was created with the first franchise, owned by Jim, opening in Vancouver, BC.

We are looking for motivated individuals that aren’t afraid to get out in the community and share the 1-888-WOW-1DAY! Painting message. Our best Franchise Partners are not afraid to introduce the service to contractors, realtors, and property managers. Therefore, having sales experience (or aptitude) can be a great asset. In addition to generating new business, you will also need to manage your painting crews, so leadership skills are a must. Finally, we need to see a F/T commitment. Again, to set you up to win.
We typically advise our Franchise Partners to begin building their business out of their homes. This helps to alleviate unnecessary expenses that can be avoided. As long as you have a place to work on a computer and make important phone calls, the majority of your time should be spent out in your community.
