By this time, Global Striping is a year-round business. During the winter, the brothers join the Painters Union and spend their time striping the floors of automotive factories throughout Michigan. During the summers, Global Striping is contracted to stripe the parking lots for Kmart stores throughout Michigan, and Meijer stores throughout Ohio. This typically involves striping a parking lot from dusk until dawn, then traveling to the next store during the day, and repeating again the following night.
