M J Painting’s Backstory

Mike John, a young ambitious New Yorker, could usually be found working at the local Sherwin Williams Paint Store after school.
Mike started his own painting business from his parents’ basement when he was just 15. Eventually, he employed three journeyman painters who dealt in commercial, residential, industrial, traffic marking and vinyl wall coverings.
He then moved to Portville doing business from his residence for a short time, soon realizing he was going to need a lot more space.
