Rochester power washing business owner wins contest

Rochester Business Journal
February 15, 2013

BehrPro, a products and services division of paint manufacturer Behr Process Corp., presented Bruce Bishop, owner of B&B Painting & Power Washing in Rochester, with a custom-wrapped trailer and tools worth more than $10,000.

Bishop was one of four winners of the 2012 “BehrPro Experience Tour” sweepstakes, a contest where names were drawn from a pool of entrants from around the country who entered their names online or at their local Home Depot location.

Behr ran the contest for five months and received several thousand entries, a Behr representative said Thursday during the unveiling of Bishop’s trailer at the Home Depot on East Ridge Road.

Bishop founded B&B Painting & Power Washing 18 years ago. He said his business has been affected by the down economy in recent years and winning the BehrPro contest will serve as a big boost.

“The recession nearly killed my business,” said Bishop. “Winning this contest is a big deal for me. It’s not just the trailer and tools, it’s the recognition as well. It really means a lot for a small business.”
