Chris and his two brothers grew up in Franklin, Ohio where their parents were both teachers. While attending The Ohio State University in 1994, Chris decided to start his own business in order to help pay for his undergraduate degree in political science as well as his law degree. With previous experience in the painting industry, he got a small loan from his dad, Mike Cox (MC), and started MC Painting. After graduating, Chris decided to defer practicing law and decided to continue to grow and improve his small business into a leading painting company in the Columbus market.
