Our Story

Flying Colors Painting Tacoma

Flying Colors Painting started in 1980, providing homeowners in Thurston County with professional painting services. Over the years, the company grew and evolved, eventually becoming one of the largest residential re-painting companies in Olympia and being hailed for their quality of work.

Long-time Flying Colors employee Katie Tobin, a Tacoma resident, saw the need for high-quality, professional painting services in her city. In 2017, Flying Colors Painting finally achieved its goal of opening its first branch in Pierce County. In 2023, Katie assumed ownership of the Tacoma branch, and thus, Flying Colors Painting Tacoma officially started. Today, Flying Colors is proud to make a difference in the surrounding community, helping revitalize homes and improve local infrastructure.
