From humble beginnings in 2010, SPRAY-NET has quickly risen to the top of their industry and has rapidly expanded in just one year. In 2015, Spray-Net sold all 15 of its franchise territories in Quebec. In early 2016, Spray-Net founder and president, Carmelo Marsala, was featured on an episode of CBC’s Dragons’ Den and was also named top young franchisor in the world at the International Franchise Association’s (IFA) NextGen in Franchising Global Competition. Spray-Net has since grown exponentially and will be operating in all Canadian provinces, with one major market remaining: Winnipeg, Manitoba.

‘’We’re different because we ultimately bridge the gap between conventional house painting and factory painting. We bring the paint factory directly on-site to homeowners to offer them permanent results and an alternative to replacing their siding, doors windows and brick,’’ says Carmelo Marsala.

It’s hardly a surprise to those who know the franchise-based company that the expansion would happen so rapidly and that each territory would be quickly snatched up. To encourage and sustain the growth of SPRAY-NET, Carmelo Marsala believes in fostering cooperation. The value of a shared vision is also applied to the strategic selection of partners, with the goal of creating the best possible team and ensuring the continuity of the company.

Part of SPRAY-NET’s success can be attributed to the value placed on educating its team. During their first year, every new franchise partner is paired with a business coach for weekly meetings, as well as a mentor to optimize the relationship between the partners and their customers. They are also offered theoretical training and an unlimited number of training sessions at their regional office and job sites.

Spray-Net was founded in 2010 by then twenty-three-year-old entrepreneur Carmelo Marsala. Using a proprietary line of industrial strength exterior paints and coatings, Spray-Net specializes in revamping siding, brick, doors and windows. The result is a permanent, factory-hard finish, backed by a 15-year warranty. Spray-Net currently operates franchise locations in Quebec, Ontario and Nova Scotia, with new locations launching in Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia spring 2016.
