Business Description

Since 1994, this commercial decorating contractor has contracted with a large downtown Minneapolis office building management company to paint and/or wallpaper the tenant and common spaces as needed. About 90% of their revenues come from this one building management client with the remaining revenues coming from requests to do similar work in other local downtown office buildings. The company has recently signed another three year contract with the client. Most of the manual labor is done by a longtime contracted employee who wishes to remain. The owner's involvement is primarily limited to 6 to 8 hours per week to schedule & inspect the jobs, invoice the client for work performed, estimate some jobs and do business relations.
