Change color or font when executing a script

I'm writing a simple menu script and I would like to output the whole script using background color: black AND foreground color:white. Meaning if the ssh terminal of a user is set to green for example, it will change to my desired color when menu script is executed. Once the script is exited, it will use his default color attributes. thanks
