Anthony’s Story

Anthony Kulikowski has been a painter since high school, working as a contractor just before opening Five Star Painting® in 2017. He learned about becoming a franchise owner through a cold call— which made him realize he wanted a business worth selling one day. His aspirations paid off: Anthony now makes in one month what he once made in one year.

Since becoming a franchise owner, Anthony has enjoyed growing both personally and professionally. He appreciates the networking opportunities that Neighborly® provides with other franchise owners as well as with corporate staff. He loves seeing his team succeed, giving back to the community, and working with his mentors, gathering knowledge he can share with future franchise owners.
