Fresh Coat Painters opens in Clarksville

 

Clarksville, Tn – When Rich Whitaker left the military after 25 years, he was faced with an important question: what should he and his wife Cheryl do now? The answer: open Fresh Coat Painters of Clarksville.

“I was transitioning from a career in the Army and we were looking to open a home service business with a reputation for high standards and professionalism. Fresh Coat was appealing because the business affords us the opportunity to serve the community by helping homeowners add value to their house while making it feel more like a home,” Rich said.
