Arizona Painting Company

Arizona Painting Company specializes in residential and commercial repainting projects. Whether your house needs a fresh coat of paint or your office needs a professional facelift, turn to Arizona Painting Company for help. Not only do we offer the most affordable Phoenix and Tucson painting services around, but since we know not everyone’s tastes are exactly the same, we also offer services tailored to your unique needs. This allows us to give your space the look and feel you’ve always envisioned it having.

None of our work is subcontracted out, it’s all done by employees who pass our rigorous training program and ongoing monthly skill-building training we do with them.

Our main company goal is to build a company culture of success and amazing customer service.

Arizona Painting Company has been in business since 2001. We have three office locations, one in Tucson, AZ, one in Chandler, AZ, and one in Glendale, AZ. We are proud of setting the standard for all other painting companies to strive for. No job is too far, if you live in the Phoenix or Tucson area, we would love to give you an estimate!

Christian Brothers Automotive

Christian Brothers Automotive was founded on the idea that taking your car to be serviced doesn't need to be a chore.

Since 1982, Christian Brothers Automotive has sought to change the way customers think about auto service by providing knowledgeable, honest, and genuine car repairs. Since that time, we have assisted countless individuals and families with their auto service needs and gotten them back on the road with as little hassle as possible. "Love your neighbor as yourself." That's our mission at Christian Brothers Automotive.

Cal Pascanu spent 15 years gaining automotive expertise at various car dealerships. He moved up the professional ladder quickly due to his innate ability to connect with customers and employees, a skillset the various dealerships leveraged to augment their recruiting and training departments. However, Cal had longed to own his own business and started searching for opportunities. It was after meeting Josh Wall, VP of CBA, that Cal knew he had found his next path in life. Putting his trust in God and embracing CBA's faith-rooted mission, Cal started the franchise process in 2015. He and his wife Lenka moved from Michigan to Arizona at the beginning of 2018 to prepare to open their store.

The Pascanu’s offer discounts service-rooted populations, including the military, police officers, fire fighters, teachers and church leaders, hospital workers and emergency first responders as well as single parents.

The Road to Re-Opening


The Governor announced previously that retail businesses could resume partial operations, including curbside delivery on Monday, May 4. Retail businesses that implement social distancing and sanitation measures could resume partial in-person operations this Friday, May 8.

Member Event - Cox Media

Are you ready to reopen?

Peoria Chamber partner Cox Media is here to help through thoughtful perspectives on messaging and media planning, and through an "Ask the Experts" webinar series. See below "Ready to Help" link on how they can help you reopen, and webinar series details and registration below.

Ready to Help

"In the best of times, it can be difficult to find creative ways to reach your customers and grow your business. Add a global pandemic to the equation and it can be downright overwhelming.

Over the past few weeks, we’ve received a lot of questions from local businesses on how to weather this storm and come out stronger on the other side. The questions vary, but all are looking for creative ideas. So we decided to tap into our powerful network of marketing minds to provide just that.

We invite you to join us every two weeks for a short conversation with a marketing expert who will address questions like:
  • How do I generate revenue when my doors are closed?
  • How can I ensure my brand authentically connects with people during this time?
  • What advertising tactics will give me the most bang for my buck right now?
If you have questions you’d like one of our experts to address, the local contact for Cox Media is Devin Beisel, who can be reached via email at​."
