What began as just a couple of young dudes and some paint brushes one summer has grown into a full-service professional painting company. 

Peter Barber and Brian McCaskey started Two Dudes Painting Company in 1987, using a room in Peter's house as a makeshift office and storage space. Now the company has 38 employees and a 13,000-square-foot facility in Downtown Lancaster, with clients all over South Central Pennsylvania. 

And what about that bus? Back in the early days, Peter and Brian hauled their gear to jobs in the original Dudes bus --a bright-orange '79 Volkswagen. Since then, that orange bus has become not just our company logo but also a symbol for the way we do business: We work hard. We're reliable. And we're full of personality.
