#BrickAndMortar – Discovering the Colourful Side of Wychwood Heights | By Zachary Rosvelti

Let’s make a point to shop local at Maple Paints. Where the owner doesn’t wear a name-tag, but you will surely know his name. I would like to introduce Frank Reilly, a true paint expert.


Frank got his start in the paint industry working for a Para Paints supplier when he was a teenager. His parents who were also in the paint industry owned Maple Paints and handed down the business to their son Frank in 1982. When I asked Frank on his thoughts about taking over the family business, here’s what he had to say, “It was natural for me to be in the paint business, it’s in our blood.”

What sets Maple Paints apart from other paint shops, is the superb service Frank and his employees provide to each customer that walks through the door, where he in turn gets to know them by name. Personal customer care is what has shaped Maple Paints throughout the years, that same personal care coupled with good product is what keeps the customers coming back. Frank is truly passionate about his craft, he enjoys helping customers and freeing them of their home improvement woes.

“I like helping people, people always need some sort of burden eased.”

“Toronto is made up of neighbourhoods, everyone loves their neighbourhood. It’s a collective interest, an ownership.”

It’s this feeling of ownership that has made Maple Paints so popular amongst the St. Clair West, Hillcrest Village and Wychwood communities. People in our neighbourhoods know that they can rely on Frank and his staff for all their paint and wall finish needs. It’s a great honour to know that Maple Paints is one of the most reliable and respected businesses in the area. Shopping for paint with Frank will indeed be a great experience.

For Frank, being part of the community means helping the local neighbours with his knowledge and attention to detail for their individual needs. The world of colour is a true expression of who we are.
