Certapro Painters® Franchise Territory Overview

State College, PA Franchise Territory Overview

State College is home to the main campus of Pennsylvania State University (Penn State). The university attracts a large student population, faculty, and staff, resulting in a significant demand for painting services in both on-campus and off-campus housing. Additionally, Penn State’s ongoing construction projects and renovations provide opportunities for painting contractors to work on commercial buildings within the university.

State College has a thriving rental market, primarily driven by the large student population of Penn State. Many students live in off-campus housing, including apartments, townhouses, and student housing complexes, which often require painting services between tenants or during property turnovers. Painting businesses can cater to this market by offering efficient and affordable painting solutions.

State College has diverse residential neighborhoods, ranging from historical homes to modern subdivisions. Painting businesses can provide services to homeowners who are looking to refresh their homes’ interiors or exteriors, including repainting, color consulting, or implementing custom finishes. The historic architecture in some neighborhoods may also provide opportunities for specialized restoration services.

State College has a thriving commercial and retail sector. The downtown area, along with various shopping centers and plazas, boasts a range of businesses, including restaurants, boutiques, offices, and more. Painting businesses can capitalize on the demand for interior and exterior painting services in these commercial spaces, helping business owners maintain an attractive and professional appearance for their establishments.
