Kenneth (Kenny) Evans founded Evans Painting Company LLC in El Dorado Springs, MO in 1992. Tired of life as he knew it, Kenny envisioned a life for his children that was very different from his own.


Kenny never wanted his children to work at the mercy of another man’s ego. He took a hard look around and saw no reason he couldn’t create a better kind of painting company. So, he did just that.


Kenny quit his job and spent his last twenty dollars on a new drop cloth. He didn’t have tons of equipment, a crew of any kind, or any jobs to do, but he knew the work would come if he looked hard enough. 


Kenny drove from El Dorado Springs to Joplin every day to visit the local paint stores and ask about work until someone gave him a shot. Eventually, his persistence paid off. After his first solo job his reputation began to form.


It wasn’t long before another job came, and then another, and another still. Kenny’s persistence, hard work, quality, and attention to customer satisfaction early on laid the foundation for a company that values hard work, perseverance, and customer satisfaction to this day.
