The ResiBrands Story
Steven Montgomery, the founder of That 1 Painter, discovered a passion for painting at a young age. Steven, the son of a professional painter, would often help his father with painting after school. He decided to continue learning long after his father retired from the painting business. While in college, Steven would borrow his father’s old equipment and help paint homes for his realtor mother and her colleagues’ clients.
In 2011, Steven decided to leave college and his day job to pursue his calling as an entrepreneur and founded That 1 Painter. In its early years, That 1 Painter was just Steven and a few hired friends painting homes together. Today, That 1 Painter is the fastest-growing painting franchise in the nation.
In 2022, Steven founded ResiBrands and later partnered with his cousin and lifelong friend, Allan Alarcon, in building the nation’s greatest home service brands. With the launch of Resibrands as the parent company of That 1 Painter and the newly introduced franchise, Garage Up, 2023 marks a year of continued nationwide expansion. Steven, Allan, and the Resi team refuse to take their foot off the gas to become the fastest growing Home Service brand in the nation.
Montgomery shared his big-picture plans with professional colleagues at the beginning of his entrepreneurial journey, most doubted his vision, some laughed, and few said it was RIDICULOUS. ResiBrands only sets ridiculously high goals and nothing less. If we reach our goals, we celebrate; if we don’t, try again and set the bar higher! Big Goals = Big Wins.
