Mark’s Story

Mark Lambert is no stranger to franchise ownership. He owned two franchises before opening Five Star Painting® in 2009. An Army veteran, he converted his first painting company to Five Star Painting and has more than tripled his annual income and grown the company by 30%. Without Neighborly® and Five Star Painting, Mark says he’d still be on a ladder working as a residential painter.

Mark has been thrilled to watch the company’s growth. He enjoys working with his wife, Melinda, who handles accounting, and with his daughter, who excels at sales and project management.

Mark credits the corporate team at Five Star Painting and his franchise business coach for helping him learn the ropes and always being available. He gets excited about Neighborly’s business concepts added each year and looks forward to new opportunities.
