Answers by Valarie Campbell of ProTect Painters of Des Moines.

Q: Give a history of the business including: date established, previous owners, length of previous ownership, former locations, etc.

A: ProTect Painters was founded in 1994. In 2009, ProTect Painters became a member of Service Brands International, a privately held, multi-concept franchise system with worldwide headquarters in Ann Arbor, Michigan. My franchise is the first in Iowa, and I am the first female owner of a ProTect Painters franchise. I started my business in July 2010.

Multi-Colored Home ExteriorQ: Describe what you do, i.e., the products that you sell; the services you provide.

A: ProTect Painters is the answer to all of your painting needs. We have become one of the largest painting and decorating companies because we have the experience to handle all of your painting needs, exterior and interior, residential and commercial. If you are like most people, your home is your most important investment. That is why we want to offer our valuable services. Let us help you understand about the important maintenance needs on your biggest asset.

Q: What do you do to bring customers in and keep them coming back? What separates you from your competition?

A: ProTect Painters delivers the unique combination of top quality work and customer service that others can only talk about. We’re insured, bonded and licensed, and we’re local; right in your own neighborhood! We treat every home as if it was our own. Our dedication to complete satisfaction is unsurpassed. Our motto is - “Quality that lasts!”

Q: What do you enjoy most about your business?

A: I enjoy working with people, especially one on one with home or business owners. I especially love helping homeowners choose new fresh colors for their home. My company is committed to help ProTect your investment, but also beautify the community we all love and choose to live in. I make people happy - that is what I enjoy most.

Q: What plans do you have for future growth? (new locations, additional products and services)

A: We cover all areas of the Metro Des Moines area, from Polk City to Indianola, Waukee and Grimes to Mitchellville. Lately we have had several requests for cement/garage floor painting, which can be done in many colors and textures. Faux painting and antiquing of kitchen cabinets is also very popular now.

Q: Does your business have a claim to fame in East Polk County? (Celebrity visit, sponsor team or race car, featured in TV show or prize winning products)

ProTect Painters TruckA: Unfortunately, due to the newness of my local franchise, I cannot think of one. But if there was a category for best logoed truck, I think I would win - you can't miss me driving down the road.

Q: Why has your business been successful?

A: Because I love what I do: I enjoy working with people, especially one on one with home or business owners, helping choose color palettes, and ensuring that customers get the quality job that they expect. I only work with experienced subcontractors who do the painting, painters who have been in the business for many years and value quality and professionalism as much as I do.
