It Was Love at First Franchise for Throwback Millennials Kalie Shuster and Zach Beutler
Omaha, NE – (July 1, 2019) – Color World, a leading house painting franchise with locations across the Midwest, is proud to expand its reach to Omaha, NE. Two Millennial franchise development pros are leading the charge with the goal of becoming the top painting business in the area.
Kalie Shuster and Zach Beutler, who are engaged to be married August 3, 2019, launched the Omaha location for Color World on May 1, 2019 on a mission to revolutionize the painting industry. Shuster says she believes the idea of giving a home a new look has lost its luster, something she hopes to restore to the industry.
“To me, I feel like a lot of people don’t realize how glamorous and exciting painting can be,” Shuster says. “I want to make house painting and adding new changes to your home as fun and exhilarating as highlights, haircuts, or salons.”
Color World has been proudly serving its customers since 1997, and looks forward to expanding its reach even further. The one-of-a-kind painting company is pleased to bring much more than just fresh coats for homes to Omaha. Color World of Omaha’s range of services also includes gutter installation, power washing, commercial painting, holiday lighting, and even minor drywall and carpentry work.
With this new business, Shuster and Beutler have established themselves as Omaha’s newest power couple. They share a love story that has blossomed through a shared passion for franchising and farming.
The two met while running franchise operations for a national nutrition franchise. It wasn’t long before Zach made a big move to Omaha to take on the Vice President of Franchise Development position at Franchise Fastlane, a leading national turn-key franchise sales organization (FSO). Kalie soon followed suit, joining Zach to form a dynamic duo that has helped fuel Franchise Fastlane’s swift ascension to one of the most trusted and highly reputable suppliers in the franchising space (In fact, Franchise Fastlane CEO Ryan Zink was recently featured as one of Omaha Magazine’s 2019 Faces of Omaha).
Recently, the two decided it was time to take the advice they give to so many other aspiring business owners – taking control of their future via franchise ownership. The two saw Color World as a prime opportunity to do just that while providing a much-needed service to the Omaha community.
“We see it as something that isn’t just relegated to the spring and summer months,” says Beutler. “The company is not a product, it’s a service.”
Beutler and Shuster’s relationship extends far beyond the business world. The couple is planning their upcoming wedding in a rustic, red barn in Omaha for a country party catering to friends and franchise family alike. They also recently purchased an old farm that had been destroyed and have been working overtime to restore it to its original condition. They’re investing that effort to honor the original owners and show their future kids what’s possible when you commit to something.
This dedication to blue collar values and simpler times defines this throwback couple.
“We really care about old school values,” says Shuster. “We want to bring back the glamour of painting and restore family traditions. It’s about so much more than a coat of paint, it’s about building a home. That’s what matters most to us in our lives, too, and I think we prove that in everything we do.”
Color World began its franchising initiative in 2016 and has quickly expanded to 7 new locations. The Omaha, NE location is currently open with plans to expand to the Lincoln, NE region in the future.
