There have been accusations from former Franchise Managers of a College Pro Painters scam. Is there any validity to these claims? In order to assess the allegations of a College Pro Painters scam one must first understand the College Pro system and review the facts surrounding students claiming to have been part of a College Pro Painters scam.
College Pro is a well established and respected student-run organization operating in the United States and Canada. College Pro has been in business for over 40 years and has helped thousands of young college student entrepreneurs on the road to success. So why is it that a long-standing business with a strong Better Business Bureau rating and plenty of great review from both customers and franchisees is battling the stigma of a College Pro Painters scam? The source of this issue is from disenchanted Franchise Managers who have not succeeded within the proven business model.
Upon hearing allegations of a College Pro Painters scam, the parents of Matthew Ackerman certainly disagree. Mike and Carol Ackerman have personal experience with the College Pro system and will assure you there is no College Pro Painters scam.
They recall the day their son came home from college and told them he was interested in a summer program that would allow him to own and operate his own seasonal painting franchise. Of course they were initially concerned and questioned if their son was getting involved in a College Pro Painters scam, but they explained that Matthew was a smart, responsible hard-working young adult who had started his first job at age 13, and they trusted him to make good decisions. Mike Ackerman explains, “We decided this really needed to be his decision and who were we to squash his enthusiasm and ambitions, so we gave him our full support.”
Looking back on their decision to support Matthew with College Pro there is certainly no regret. They realize now that Matthew learned discipline and skills from College Pro that his education in Business Management could not provide; such as real-life training and experience. They recall that it was not an easy summer job, and that their son had to devote many hours to building his business while his peers worked easy “punch-in, punch-out” jobs, but the benefits far outweigh the challenges.
You can find allegations of a College Pro Painters scam sprinkled across the internet from homeowners who say they had a less than perfect experience with College Pro Painters. Sometimes there is a genuine miscommunication between consumer and contractor, but, more often than not, a perceived College Pro Painters scam can be avoided by knowing how to choose a professional painting contractor.
Protecting and beautifying one of your most valuable assets is important, which is why homeowners need to carefully research and understand the exterior painting process to avoid a College Pro Painters scam. However, this can be a confusing and complicated process, which is why College Pro would like to offer the following advice to any person considering painting their home.
