US Army Veteran Starts Parking Lot Striping Franchise in the Bayou State
Lafayette, LA—G-FORCE™, a pavement marking and parking lot striping franchise that is the first to exclusively award franchises to United States Veterans, has opened in Lafayette, Louisiana. The new business will primarily serve major cities like Lafayette, Baton Rouge, and New Orleans as well as communities across Louisiana.
Opened in January 2021, the business is owned and operated by José Ortiz, a local to the area. Sergeant Ortiz is an eight year Army Veteran and was deployed twice to Iraq. Now, he is focusing on providing high-end parking lot striping and marking services across the state. In addition to lot markings, José specializes in warehouse floor markings, parking lot sign installation, athletic field markings, thermoplastic, and ADA parking compliance.
“I knew it was the right opportunity for me to go into business for myself,” Ortiz said. “The corporate team has been with me every step of the way as I’ve gotten my G-FORCE location off the ground. I’m excited to see the positive impact we can bring to every community we serve.”
Founded in 2017 and franchising since 2018, G-FORCE prides itself as the go-to resource for all things line striping and pavement marking – New Layout, Re-Stripe, ADA Compliance, Stencil Markings, Warehouse Markings, Parking Structure Markings, Outdoor Basketball Courts, Athletic Field Markings and more. G-FORCE also does parking lot sign installation, and partners with other contractors to provide other pavement services such as sealcoating, asphalt repairs, paving and power washing.
“With distinctive camouflage trucks and service trailers, state-of-the-art equipment and military-influenced logo and uniforms, G-FORCE has built its brand around today’s Veteran,” Ortiz added. “I’m proud to start growing my business throughout Lafayette and the state of Louisiana.”
The brand is also the first in the country to offer veteran-exclusive franchise opportunities and continues to be a champion of supporting veterans as they return from duty. According to G-FORCE founder Jack Child, himself a more than 10-year veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces, there are more resources and assistance programs than ever before to help Veterans face the many challenges they face returning to civilian life. “There’s always more that can and should be done. We want to do our part,” he said. “Veterans like José have the best leadership training in the world. In addition to coming from an integrity-focused background, they are mission-oriented and have a call to fulfill a higher purpose – all traits needed to run a successful business.”
