Owner of Calipaintco

Cali Paint Company was founded in 2007, but the beginnings of that business go back much farther. At age 12 Justin Kolacinski was introduced to the construction business when he started working for a family friend’s painting company. Most 12-year old boys do not dream of starting a business, but it didn't take long for this one to realize that painting was what he wanted to do. Justin honed his skills in his early teens, and learned every trick of the trade while helping his father build their house in Agua Dulce. During this time his desire to have his own painting company grew immensely, and at age 16 Justin took action. He decided to name the business “Cali Paint Co”. He hand drew the logo in his favorite colors (blue and yellow), had cards printed, and began his entrepreneurial journey.

 

The jobs were small at first, mostly for family friends and neighbors. But word of mouth spread quickly of the conscientious work put behind every brushstroke, and business increased. Justin then asked his twin brothers (Zach and Bryce) if they wanted to help out part-time and put a little extra money in their pockets. Being driven to be the best, Justin then took his career to the next level. He enrolled in contractors’ school and passed the state exam. He became a licensed painting contractor at the age of 19. Work became so steady that Bryce and Zach could see Justin needed more help, so they became full-time employees.

The twins helped to forge the framework of the business and set the standard of excellence. They learned each piece of equipment and all the product lines so they could help with every aspect of the work. With jobs increasing rapidly they would put in a full day at one site, move to unoccupied venues, and then work into the night on those buildings and structures. Justin then hired some close and trusted friends to make sure every project was brought in on time. Despite hard economic times, Cali Paint Co. continued to thrive. This was a direct result of their professional attitude, hard work, and the fine quality of the finished product. The bulk of this work was on residential dwellings. Justin’s drive pushed him to explore different avenues of business and seek new sources of revenue. He realized he desperately needed an account manager, and he had just the right person in mind.
