Newsletter (April 2016)

Welcome to the April edition of our monthly newsletter. We have an exciting year planned to celebrate our 30th anniversary in business! We couldn’t be happier and we owe it all to you.

Last month we met our office manager Cherri. This month we’d like to introduce you to our talented staff ……

This month on the Company Spotlight we meet the people at Ponds Child Care from Plymouth, MA.


And don’t forget, to help thank all of our customers we are having a huge contest this year with tons of giveaways and prizes. Last month we gave away a $50.00 gift certificate to Nosh Tavern in downtown Plymouth to the monthly winner Suzanne Obin of Plymouth, MA.

Enjoy the newsletter and be sure to continue reading in the coming months for more contest details and giveaways that you don’t want to miss!

Meet The One Stop Painting Staff!


One Stop has 24 full time painters currently, and one part time (Steve is a full time teacher who joins our merry band in the summer!)

We have a combined experience level of over 3 centuries of actual experience! Pure, full-time painting, we add up to 339 combined years (that’s an average of 14 years each!) This clearly is a craft for us, we are not all learning to paint as we go!!!


Hobbies are wide and varied among the staff, most important when we polled was spending time with their families. After that, restoring cars was popular (we have several classic cars among the staff) Sports radio and all things sports and New England (Patriots, Red Sox, Bruins, Celtics). Most enjoy fishing, skiing, softball, hockey, racing, video games, and music as well ranked very high (One Foreman has a studio at home and plays drums and guitars) and all enjoy concerts!!! Golf is also popular, as is dirt bike riding and of course working on their homes!!

We have a lot of families here, and we boast a lot of children. Ages vary from newborn to mid-20’s and married! There are a combined 13 girls and 18 boys among the group, and Jeff is anxiously awaiting his 1st grandchild in June! Another member has 2 grandchildren with another on the way!


One member left for a brief time to work on cell towers. He was on average up 400 feet, but his highest was 1,400 feet! Even Jeff, the owner, shakes his head at 1,400 feet up Jeff used to install staging in Boston for a short time when younger; hundreds of feet up was the norm.

Jeff has known many of his employees for a long time now, One Stop is celebrating its 30th year in business, but Jeff has known several of the staff for closer to 40 years now!

Some of the staff has travelled the country for our regular customers, from Florida to California!

One of our staff members is building a Baja rally truck, while another is restoring a classic Mustang. One already has several classic card restored in his garage along with his motorcycles.

Our master carpenter was given his first hammer at age 12 (true story) and he was hooked ever since. He is also a huge NY Jets fan, but we love him anyways!


In addition to ONE STOP, there is also the Jeff Cohen Charitable Foundation, and many of the crew will be seen at events, sometimes days in advance, setting up large venues for events, building parade floats and setting up and breaking down the smaller benefits. All enjoy the spirit of giving and helping that runs through the company.

Many of the crews will do things together after work, from K1 Racing, to sporting events. The company as a whole has been on group whale watches, family fun days, comedy shows, dinners and sporting events.  Disney and Florida are favorite destinations for the staff when on vacation!

We also LOVE animals and have many pets. Our next newsletters will tell you all about them! We also donate to the humane society and volunteer/sponsor animal awareness events!
