Our Team – Amarillo
Scott Gross is the owner of the Amarillo regional office of Southern Painting located in the Texas Panhandle. Scott graduated from Texas Tech University in 1984 with a degree in Landscape Architecture and moved to Amarillo to work for a builder’s supply company. He has since established Southern Painting as one of the most successful painting companies in the Texas Panhandle.
“The growth that I have personally experienced, through owning a Southern Painting franchise, has been life changing. It has allowed me the freedom to pursue goals and dreams that I did not think were possible. I wake up every day feeling blessed to be a part of Southern Painting.”
Scott was born in Big Spring, Texas in April of 1960. Shortly thereafter, his family moved to Austin where his father started his own plumbing company. They lived in Austin for 16 years before moving back to Big Spring.
“My dad ran a successful plumbing company, and I was soon introduced to the family business. I started at the bottom of the ladder and, as I learned the profession, was given more responsibility. It gave me a firm understanding of what it means to work hard and take pride in your work.”
Scott strives to be an active part of the community and is currently a proud member of the Amarillo Chamber of Commerce, the Better Business Bureau, and the Texas Panhandle Builders Association.
