The Brennan Painting Backstory

The beginning of Tim Brennan’s painting career can be traced back to his childhood, when he would work alongside his uncle, who is a handyman.

As a young teenager, he spent his summers doing odd jobs for neighbors and family friends. This continued every summer until his senior year at Marquette University High School when a track coach recognized Tim’s leadership abilities, drive and discipline, and recommended him for a management position at a national painting franchise. After only one summer running a crew, Tim’s customer reviews caught the eyes of upper management and he was offered his own franchise.

Tim’s first year running a franchise as a business school freshman at Carthage college was as hard as you could imagine— working 100 hour weeks without a profit and trying to manage burned out employees—but he was fueled by his commitment to his business, the promises he made to his customers and his desire to grow the company in a slow, steady, and honest way.

Due to his perseverance, he survived his first year as a franchise owner. However, Tim quickly became disheartened without the ability to build a brand that reflected his own high standards, customer-first mentality and lifetime value, as other franchisee owners with different philosophies shared the same company name – but didn’t necessarily share the same values.

And thus, Brennan Painting was born. Tim’s brother John joined the Brennan Painting ranks to form a family-operated business. Not only did he get to work alongside one of his best friends, but a man who shared the same principles of honesty, integrity, and focus on customer satisfaction and retention – someone Tim could trust to help run the business as it was his own.

Fast forward to today and the business has grown and evolved – with a reputation that speaks for itself and sets Brennan Painting apart from its competitors. A commitment to integrity and fostering long-term relationships with customers and employees has been a recipe for success that allows the company to continue to thrive.

Looking forward to what the future holds, Tim has learned from dedicating his life to his business to stick to what you are best at and never stop honing your craft, stay true to yourself and your values, and don’t stop until you have fulfilled your promises to your workers and customers.

Tim still resides in Wauwatosa today with his wife Holly, daughter Sloan and dog Duke, spending what free-time he has powerlifting, playing guitar, fishing and practicing Spanish.
