Rebecca Clukey Starts Encore Career by Opening Fresh Coat Painters of Waco

Rebecca Clukey

Waco, TX (PRWEB) October 30, 2013

When Rebecca Clukey lost three family members in less than a year, she decided it was time to move back to her hometown of Waco and start the next phase of her life.

“I had a background in accounting from when I lived in Dallas, but I was 50 years old and was facing a tough job market. In order to support myself and my son back here in Waco, I was looking at taking two jobs or living with my dad, and that’s not what I wanted to do at this point in my life. I looked at my options and decided it was time to start my own business.”

That’s when Clukey launched Fresh Coat Painters franchise in Waco.

Fresh Coat Painters offers residential and commercial painting services including interior and exterior painting, wood staining and finishing, and other services for nearly every protective coating application. They use quality, environmentally safe materials and offer a 24/7 customer service center, online scheduling and detailed quotes.

“The people here in Waco are unique and loyal – we like to support local people and local businesses, so I knew, if I was going to open a business, I had to have something special. When I came across Fresh Coat, it just felt right. Sometimes you just have to go with your gut, so that’s what I did,” Clukey said.

“I want my clients to know that Fresh Coat of Waco will bring to them exactly what I would want for my family. I expect a quality, service and professionalism, so that’s what we’ll deliver. When we’re finished, your home should look like something on HGTV,” she added. “Also, people should feel comfortable with me and with my painters. Sometimes when contractors are in your home, you feel like you’re the one who doesn’t belong. It shouldn’t be like that. With Fresh Coat, we’re guests in your home working to make it a more beautiful place.”

Clukey did a soft launch of Fresh Coat Painters of Waco alongside her sponsorship of the Waco Civic Theater’s production of Beehive: The 60’s Musical. She’s looking forward to be involved in future community events and programs.

“As a business owner, it’s important to be part of your community, not just in it. I’m excited about what that will mean for Fresh Coat of Waco,” Clukey said.

Fresh Coat was founded in 2004 as part of Strategic Franchising Systems, which has more than 20 years of franchise experience. In the last year, Fresh Coat has been included in the Bond’s Top 100 and named to Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500 list. Fresh Coat also is part of the International Franchise Association, the Small Business Association’s Franchise Registry, VetFran and Minority Fran.
