LIME Painting Named a 2023 Franchising@WORK Award Finalist by Franchise Business Review

June 29, 2023

DENVER, Colo.  LIME Painting – the first and only high-end painting franchise company - was just named a finalist for the 2023 Franchising@WORK Awards by Franchise Business Review. The awards recognize franchise companies with the highest employee satisfaction based on an independent survey of corporate franchise staff. 

LIME Painting offers 40 different painting, coating, and surface restoration services, but the brand is much more than that. LIME’s values of love, integrity, mission, and excellence motivate them to provide the best service possible using the highest quality products to maintain the aesthetic and structure of luxury properties.

Franchise Business Review (FBR), a market research firm that specializes in benchmarking satisfaction within the franchising sector, conducts surveys of corporate franchise employees, franchise supplier employees, and franchise owners’ employees across North America each year to determine their levels of engagement. 

FBR recently conducted the industry-wide Franchising@WORK Employee Engagement Benchmarking Study to provide aggregate data to help franchise companies understand how their culture and engagement compare and improve hiring and retention practices. All corporate franchise employees were invited to take part.

Participants were asked questions related to job satisfaction, engagement, skills and experience, management, brand leadership, and culture.

Franchise companies that participated in Franchise Business Review’s employee engagement research were eligible for the Franchising@WORK Awards. FBR analyzed data from over 6,000 employees surveyed across nearly 180 franchise organizations, representing 40% corporate staff and 60% unit-level employees to identify the finalists based on responses from their employees in eight key areas. 

“The Franchising@WORK Awards are the only awards that recognize the companies that have fostered a positive, inclusive culture and prioritize employee engagement and well-being within the franchise sector,” said Michelle Rowan, president & COO of Franchise Business Review. “At a time when recruiting and retaining quality employees is everything, these companies have set themselves apart as top employers in franchising through their commitment to employee satisfaction, asking for feedback, and involving their teams in driving the success of their culture.” 

“We are so proud to have made it thus far, and we look forward to welcoming more fellow entrepreneurs into the LIME family as we continue to grow,” said Nick Lopez, Founder and CEO of LIME Painting. “There is a high demand for our unmatched quality of work in affluent markets nationwide. We really appreciate when organizations such as Franchising@WORK recognize our hard work and intentions to expand.”

Winners will be announced live on June 15, 2023. Register here to attend:
