Congratulations to FBA Broker Matt Lucas on successfully placing a Five Star Painting candidate in Florida!
Rich Kocinski had spent the last 35 years in medical sales industry. Now with a teenager in the house, he started looking for ways to supplement and eventually replace his income from consulting for medical device manufacturers. Living in Southwest Florida in an affluent community with many retirees, Rich was keenly aware of the need for premium home services.
That’s when Matt reached out to Justin Penard of Five Star Painting. Rich had managed budgets of $250M in the past so he really dove into the Item 19 and liked what he read. Matt sat in on the initial call with Justin but let Rich lead the way from there. Understanding the candidate’s personality is so important! About 7 weeks later, this motivated driver was awarded the Five Star Painting franchise in Fort Myers, FL.
“Matt did a great job,” Penard said. “He told me early on, ‘Rich is really digging you guys,’ and he stayed out of the way, let Rich come to the conclusion on his own. Matt read the tea leaves and handled his personality perfectly.”
Five Star Painting, a Neighborly company, is a national leader in the residential and commercial painting industry with over 200 outlets in the United States. The initial investment range of $74,700 – $184,250 includes the $45,000 franchise fee.

We choose to use the legal term as we feel it’s more appropriate and clear. Consultants typically charge for services. Franchise Brokers are paid by the Seller, not the Buyer. There is no charge to the Buyer for our Franchise Broker services.
