Default Multiple names?

Hello. I have had a painting business in my city for 11 years now. The past two years my sales/work has been at least 50% cabinet painting. I am considering having an additional named business just for cabinets and increase marketing for that, maybe even expand to the next closest city which is Nashville, TN.
What would be the pros and cons or major pitfalls ?

Thanks in advance!

I would think that if you have a good reputation and name recognition going for you under your current company name, having some sort of reference to it in any modified name would be a benefit, as compared to having a completely new one.

I've had Repaint Florida LLC for 10+ years it's main focus has been painting
with website https://www.repaintflorida.com/

i've advertised on radio, do home shows, pushed google reviews and built up the name
Last few years had been 95% cabinet painting, i have used the website for this and it ranks good for cabinet painting in my area but they see house painting to

i also start a cabinet painting only website too
https://orlandocabinetpainter.com/

i advertise it as Kitchen Cabinet Painting by Repaint Florida LLC so people know that it's Repaint Florida

having a dedicated website for cabinets works good for me, they know my history but get a website for cabinet painting with more info

just be careful with google doing this so they don't tread it as spam

check out my websites and see what you think
