Ben Colarossi

I started Colarossi more than 20 years ago. It was a time in my life that I was flat broke, only having $20 in my pocket to make it through the week.

One day I was driving in my 1977 Alfa Romero and I met this guy who also had an Alfa Romero.  We became friends. I learned that he was a 3rd generation painter and I said to him, “you teach me the business and I’ll sell.”

I went to my first job with a ladder on top of my Alfa Romero and he taught me all he knew about painting. I started hiring guys and bought one truck, then two trucks, and now 20 years later, 20 trucks, 17 painting crews, and two rain gutter crews.

I owe everything to him and all you customers who’ve supported my company and me.  My average employee has been with me 10 to 15 years. The most common thing I hear from my customers is “I love your guys.” My promise and commitment to you is that you will have a great experience with my company. Thank you.
