Our Founders

Chad Jones and Scott Abbott met in 1985 and have been best friends
since they were 11-years-old. Their friendship, built on trust, has allowed
them to rely on each other through the years.

At 19-years-old Chad moved away. In the mid-90s they both served
religious missions in various areas in Europe. When they returned home
from Europe, they both began school and started their own businesses.
From 1998 2004, Chad owned a construction company. Interested in
his company developing into a larger company, he took it to western
Canadian cities introducing a painting model with corporate locations.

Scott built a large accounting and consulting practice that spearheaded
the city’s premier outdoor festivals.

Summer of 2004, Chad returned to Winnipeg for a Friend’s wedding
where he and Scott started talking about Chad’s business and the
opportunity to grow the painting brand through a franchise business
model. They decided to pursue this opportunity and in Fall of 2004 they
developed the Five Star Painting franchising model.

In 2005, the Five Star Painting brand started to grow as they began to
sell franchises. With this growth came the need for better technologies
and fundamental lead generation. This was the start of Five Star
Franchising, the parent company of Five Star Painting.

Scott moved Five Star Franchising to Spanish Fork, Utah, in 2006, and
Chad soon followed in 2007.

Five Star Franchising attracted an incredible team who have helped to
build the success of Five Star Franchising and Five Star Painting. Five
Star Franchising’s mission, vision, and values inspired and drove the
success of the entire team.

Their efforts have brought Five Star Franchising recognition as one of
the 100 fastest growing companies in Utah for six years running.
