Amado’s Story

There’s much to admire about businesses that were started during the pandemic. It wasn’t easy to stay afloat, but Amado Cano’s Five Star Painting® in Huntsville, Alabama, not only survived — but thrived. Amado opened Five Star Painting in 2019 with one crew and took on many roles, including estimator, project manager and office admin. In one year, he added four crew members and office staff, which enabled him to finally enjoy being an owner-operator. His wife, Indy, joined the business, and they hope to open more Five Star Painting locations soon.

Amado enjoys the mentorship Neighborly® offers franchise owners. Amado takes pride in giving back to the community -- from providing free materials and labor to a local homeless shelter in need of a fresh paint job, to training and mentoring other franchise owners, Amado looks forward to continued growth for Five Star Painting®.
