Robert L Butz History

In 1939, Robert was working for Loeb's Department Store as blinds and drapery installer. While doing installs, customers would ask about who could do painting and wallpaper hanging. He would then start doing those jobs on the side. He then became busy enough with the side work, so in 1940, he started up Robert L Butz Painting and Decorating.
