$350,000 for 15%
Paul Watts, a former city worker, is the founder and owner of Graffiti Removal Services. Paul established the company after an afternoon of community service. He found inspiration from the satisfaction workers got removing graffiti from walls and light poles around their neighborhood. As a worker in the City of Sacramento, Paul had a passion for painting and painted light poles. He was disappointed by the graffiti on the bars, which moved him to start a business that would solely deal with removing the graffiti from the poles and other buildings. He noted how the graffiti lowered the real estate value, and he felt the need to invest in the same and deal with the issue fast.
His Graffiti Removal Services mobile franchise would be portable. He needed a truck and products that were friendly to the environment to help remove the graffiti across different cities. Paul was passionate about the franchise and planned on selling the idea to other entrepreneurs, empowering them to set up their businesses. He was confident in his franchise that would offer quality and affordable solutions for graffiti in towns and municipalities. Working in Sacramento’s city granted Paul immense experiences, combined with his passion for bio-degradable and environmentally friendly products would appeal to many people concerned about conservation.
