Meet The Franchise Partner Who Moved Countries To Own A Business


Have you heard? We're expanding in to Orlando, Florida, with a franchise owned by a family man from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. 

Michael Baitelli re-located to the U.S. with his family in order to start his entrepreneurial journey and open his WOW 1 DAY PAINTING business - and he's 100% certain that it was the right decision.

Read on to learn more about Michael's journey to becoming a Franchise Partner. 

Why did you choose WOW 1 DAY PAINTING?

WOW 1 DAY PAINTING  is a proven business concept and an incredible brand. It's customer centric, with a great system and a team that is always willing to go above and beyond to help. After reviewing several franchise opportunities, I knew that WOW 1 DAY PAINTING was the best business choice for me - and that it was worth moving from Brazil for the United States. 

What was your background prior to joining WOW 1 DAY PAINTING?

I worked as a business executive for about 20 years in several roles such as marketing, business development, and supply chain in the Financial, Health and Personal Care markets. Now I'm ready to build something for myself, and for my family. 

What are you looking forward to most about being a WOW 1 DAY PAINTING business owner?

I'm looking forward to providing superior customer service, and WOW-ing every customer! Also, having the flexibility and control to spend quality time with my family is very important to me. 

How are you involved with your community?

I have co-founded a nonprofit company that brings free solar energy to in-need communities in the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

What makes Orlando unique?

The Orlando housing market made it in the top five best places to invest in real estate for the third year in a row. It's seen major growth in the last five years, which is no surprise because of its scenery, quality of life and ambient weather.

Fun facts about you, or anything else you'd like to share?

I hold both Brazilian and Italian Citizenships. I used to live in the US for a period of time in 1994, and I knew I wanted to come back one day. Now, I'm moving to the US with my family from Brazil, and even though it is a hard move to make, it's the best decisions I've ever made.
