What’s the Secret Sauce? Why Choose a Klappenberger & Son Franchise?

Klappenberger & Son is the only painting company that has training videos for everyone. Whether you are an owner, estimator, or painter, everyone is following the same process. When a customer asks about the time, process, and products we will all be singing from the same hymn book.

What Does the Secret Sauce Make?

  • Satisfied Customers—In 2014 a third party review company found that 96% of our customers would use us again as well as refer us to a friend.
  • Consistency—When everyone is following the same process, problems just disappear.
  • Improved Margins—Using the best products, plus the best process, plus having an educated and trained staff equals better margins, and happier customers!


Owning and growing your own business has never been easier. Currently, we have franchises available in all of Virginia and Delaware, as well as in most of Maryland. 10 of the top 20 wealthiest counties in the country are in these areas.

  • Step-by-Step Opening Guide—Part of our unique training is to assist and train you to have the phone ringing from day one. Our marketing and advertising strategies will get your phone ringing without busting your budget, and let you grow at your own chosen speed.
  • Large Territories Granted—Our territories start at 350,000 and can go as high as 500,000. They are 2-3 times larger than those offered by other painting franchises.
  • Cloud Based Customer Management System—Easy to use and complete online access from your phone or tablet
  • Sales Script—We know exactly how to turn proposals into jobs. We will provide and train you on how to give the customer confidence that your services will meet and exceed their expectations.
