There are certain advantages Klappenberger & Son can offer that other independently owned companies cannot. Franchise National discounts are one of them. Klappenberger & Son was established in 1989 and has deep ties with three major independent paint companies.
15% is the materials to labor ratio for a typical painting job. That means a painting company generating $1,000,000 in revenue will spend about $150,000 at the paint store.
Our franchise national discounts vary compared to what an independent contractor pays for the same gallon of paint. However, when we began getting national discounts, I noticed our price per gallon dropped between 5-25%. Yes, that is a big swing, but if I guesstimate on the low end, say 10%, that’s a savings of $15,000 in your pocket.
Whether you pass those savings over to the customer or keep the difference, the choice is yours.
