WASHINGTON – EasyPaint, an on-demand platform that connects users with professional painting services, has recently expanded into the San Francisco market. After participating in this year’s TechCrunch Disrupt Battlefield Challenge in San Francisco, news spread about the D.C.-based startup, which has gained momentum and high-profile projects since launching in Washington, D.C. just one year ago. EasyPaint was also recently named a finalist in DC Inno’s 50 on Fire in the technology category, recognizing visionary companies across D.C.’s top industries.
At TechCrunch, EasyPaint presented its plans to change the perception of the painting industry; and the plan is working, with substantial business growth this year and expansion plans in motion. Projects in the D.C. region include commercial spaces such as Waterworks’ Georgetown Showroom and The Willard Hotel, as well as private residences of the area’s most in-demand interior designers including Barbara Hawthorn, Michael Hampton and Tracy Morris. In the spring of 2015, EasyPaint donated its services to the DC Design House, painting 11 rooms in the 24-room show house, contributing to the success of the 8th annual event that raised a record $330,000 for Children's National.
CEO Marty Cornish, formerly of Sherwin-Williams, formed the company in 2014 alongside former CEO of Benjamin Moore, Denis Abrams, now EasyPaint’s President and COO. Recently, the company added advisors Scott Abbott, former CEO of Five Star Painting, and Aaron Lee, former CTO of The Home Depot. Drawing on their industry experience, Abrams and Cornish established the company’s number-one goal: to provide the world’s most trusted and convenient painting experience available.
“With our incredibly experienced team and the response we’ve had throughout year one, we’re poised and ready for large-scale expansion,” Cornish commented.
EasyPaint is an online platform offering an end-to-end paint contracting service for general contractors, interior designers, realtors, business owners and homeowners.
