Starting a business on your own is HARD.

With Main Street, you don’t have to make much of a financial investment upfront. You don’t even have to quit your job until you start seeing returns, which may be in a few days, a week, or a month. Your business can be profitable a hell of a lot sooner than the traditional way, and you don’t have much to lose.

Franchises are a total rip-off.

We're calling bull on franchises. An upfront capital cost of $100,000. 18+ months to profitability. Months of paperwork and bureaucratic nonsense. And NO support from the corporate overlords? One word — exploitation.

Main Street charges $3000, not $100,000. We handle all the administrative tasks, training, marketing, lead generation, and team building. And we provide a path to profitability in a few weeks, not years.

How it Works

A 6-step guide: From setting up your painting business to earning your first revenue.

Step 1: Training

Learn A-Z about running a painting business - at your own pace

The Main Street training is more than just videos — it’s a proven playbook to succeed in the painting industry. We’ve worked with the biggest experts in the painting industry to build a 3-week virtual training. 



Week 1: The technical and sales skills you need to run a painting business
Week 2: Working with painters and managing jobs
Week 3: Managing finances, building a team, and growing the business

Learn about the painting business
Step 2: Onboarding

Hit the ground running

“I love paperwork” — said no owner ever. There’s a ton of administrative tasks that get the business up and running. You don’t have to get hassled with any of it. You submit a list of documents that go into our backend system. And you have all the paperwork you need to get started — business registration, licensing, LLC, insurance, etc.

All the documents you’ll need
Step 3: Branding

Build a designer website to get customers faster

Building a brand is one of the hardest parts of starting a business. Who has the time or money to think about branding — logos, design, website, etc. We also send you branded gear — t-shirts, 5-in-1 painter’s tool, yard signs, business cards, door hangers, etc — at no extra cost.  With Main Street, you get to build your website — and your brand — within days.

Step 4: Marketing

Get a steady flow of customers within 20 days

Finding the customers is the biggest hurdle to running a successful business. We’ve built a marketing engine that finds leads from a ton of different sources — Home Advisor, Thumbtack, Google, Yelp, etc. It doesn’t just stop there. It actually evaluates all these leads, and chooses the best ones. These selected leads then go to a US-based call center, which screens them for you and books appointments. So when a lead comes to you, it’s already an interested customer — with an appointment on your calendar.

Step 5: Operating your business

Wowing your customers - estimation, invoicing & payments

The painting industry isn’t super sophisticated — 75%+ businesses don’t even have a website.
That’s why Main Street focusses on a WOW experience. You go to the customer’s house. You blow them away with our estimating and invoicing software. You book the job. And our Payments Engine makes your customer feel like they’re working with a Fortune 500 company.

Build an estimate
Step 6: Hire Painters

Choose from a list of painters in your area

Once you’ve booked the job— and the customer has paid in advance— you can use our Labor Management Tool to find experienced and reliable painters. With the touch of a button all local painters in the area will be notified about your job.

Hey America—

You don’t need to be the next Google to build something meaningful.

I’m Danilo, CEO here at Main Street. I’m just a kid from Brooklyn. My mission is to make starting a business easy.

A successful business is one that helps you reach your  personal goals, whether that be time, control or money. Growing up with a father who owned a small business, I saw first hand that when done right -- running a business can be a beautiful thing. And it doesn't have to be complicated.

Take painting. You buy paint, find customers, hire painters and complete jobs. There’s no need to take a risky, long-term approach to building a billion-dollar business.

How many painting jobs per week do you think gets you a million dollar business?

Six.

You don’t need to change the world to have the life you want. Some people waiting for that “brilliant” idea but never find something they deem worthy enough to pursue. Others pursue passion projects but find themselves bogged down by the “passion” component of the project. And finally, the “change the world” thing - it’s simply unrealistic for 99% of people.

You don’t need to invent the iPhone to make it big.

If you're willing to put the work in, we'll give you the tools to build a real business.

Main Street exists to unlock the complex-highly-profitable
world of service-industry entrepreneurship.
