G-FORCE™, the first pavement marking and parking lot striping franchise to exclusively award franchises to United States Veterans, has opened in Lafayette, Louisiana. The new business will primarily serve major cities like Lafayette, Baton Rouge, and New Orleans, as well as communities across Louisiana.
Opened in January 2021, the business is owned and operated by José Ortiz, a local to the area. Sergeant Ortiz is an eight-year Army Veteran and was deployed twice to Iraq. Now, he is focusing on providing high-end parking lot striping and marking services across the state. In addition to lot markings, José specializes in warehouse floor markings, parking lot sign installation, athletic field markings, thermoplastic, and ADA parking compliance.
“I knew it was the right opportunity for me to go into business for myself,” Ortiz said. “The corporate team has been with me every step of the way as I’ve gotten my G-FORCE location off the ground. I’m excited to see the positive impact we can bring to every community we serve.”
Founded in 2017, G-FORCE prides itself as the go-to resource for all things line striping, pavement marking and parking lot sign installation, and partners with contractors to provide other pavement services such as sealcoating, asphalt repairs, paving and power washing.
“With distinctive camouflage trucks and service trailers, state-of-the-art equipment and military-influenced logo and uniforms, G-FORCE has built its brand around today’s Veteran,” Ortiz added. “I’m proud to start growing my business throughout Lafayette and the state of Louisiana.”
