Nick Lopez attended Arvada West High School and left Colorado as a wide-eyed first-generation college student to work on a BS in business marketing from Michigan State University. His plan was to walk on to the wrestling team, which would ultimately pay for the cost of tuition and living. The reality was that a scholarship was a couple of years away, so Nick made the tough decision to hang up his wrestling shoes for an entrepreneurial endeavor to support the cost of his education.Email Nick
At the age of 19, Nick founded his first painting LLC, and every summer thereafter he painted homes to help pay for tuition, books, and cost of living. By doing so, Nick developed a real passion and love for the craft of home improvement. In his third year as the owner of the company, the “light bulb” went off. He realized that those years of painting didn’t have to be his last, and that a future in the homeimprovement industry he had grown to love, made sense. From that point forward, Nick focused himself on building a business that would set the standard for excellence in painting and home improvement.
Upon graduation, Nick and his soon-to-be wife moved back to Colorado to start their family. Soon after, Nick launched LIME Painting in Denver. He created, developed, and perfected what Nick believes to be a game-changing business model for consistently delivering exceptionally high-quality home improvement services. High-quality people were the secret to LIME’s early and ongoing success. They have been the key to making LIME the industry-leader in customer service and quality control. LIME continues to have a strong focus on finding, partnering with, and developing the talented, well-trained craftsmen needed to deliver high-performance products.
Through it all, Nick has retained the passion for excellence that inspired him to build LIME, “I love what I do because LIME provides unique opportunities for the families who are part of the LIME team. We deliver a quality service in an industry that doesn’t always fit that type, and that quality is important to me. I learned at a young age that most consumers don’t have a reliable, responsive resource in the painting industry. Our company strives to provide the ultimate solution to that problem. We aim to exceed our clients’, and our own expectations with the services we deliver. That obligation to our clients excites me and encourages me to work that much harder!”
