Why Choose Us


Dick Watkins started in the paint business with Lloyd Watkins in West Palm Beach. He moved to Orlando and managed a paint store that became Watkins Paint in 1953. The store quickly developed a reputation for quality and attention to detail. From the beginning, the stores have emphasized customer service, expert advice and carrying the newest products and lines of paint.

Dick's son Rick began his involvement with Watkins Paint in 1984 and quickly recognized the importance of technology to the paint business. Soon after, Watkins Paint had one of the first color matching computers in the state of Florida. We continue the tradition of service with our great staff and lineup of products, and we remain the area's leader in color.
