Our Company History
Where it all began, Sept 1987…
It’s funny how I started in the Toronto painting industry. It actually started by accident. Back in 1987, I was currently studying economics at York University in Toronto. My friend who I met in first year university had run a very successful summer student painting business. He highly recommended I give it a try myself.
Since I can remember when I was a kid, I saw my dad run his business my entire life. Hence, it was my dream to run my own business one day. Finally, this was my big opportunity. Being the opportunist that I was, I jumped at the chance to make some money to pay for my university education, and at the same time run a summer painting business. So I dug down deep, and gained the courage to run my first ever business as a student painting franchise for the summer.
Upon graduating from York University with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics in 1991, the job market was scarce. However, I did have some hands on expertise. I did have experience running my Toronto painting business during the summers I attended university. So I simply decided to keep my painting business going since I was enjoying it so much. After all, “What better opportunity to fulfill my life long dream of running a business as to become a professional painting contractor!!”.
So that is how my career as a professional Toronto painting contractor got started and Home Painters Toronto was born. Since then, I have been thrilled to satisfy and paint thousands of client’s homes. In the recent past, www.HomePaintersToronto.com has been featured numerous times on Breakfast Television CP24 with Jennifer Valentyne and Frankie Flowers. As a way to show our appreciation, we also participate in many charitable campaigns as can be seen on our charity page.
