We Can Fix That!

Creative Colors International, the nation’s leading on-site repair and restoration franchise, launched its most recent Oklahoma-based location on August 31, 2015 in Oklahoma City, OK. This is big news as more local business owners and cost-conscious residents than ever before are seeking out alternatives to astronomical upholstering charges and replacement fees associated with damaged possessions composed of leather, vinyl, plastic and fabric.

This rising local demand for cost-effective repair and restoration services is what inspired Frank and Lena Earnest to open the newest Creative Colors International location right here in Oklahoma City. And according to Frank, Creative Colors International’s revolutionary products and restoration techniques will help local customers save up to 90% on replacement fees by repairing worn and/or damaged materials.

“In just a few months, countless customers have been blown away by the repair and restoration services we offer with Creative Colors,” says Frank Earnest. “My wife, a former teacher, and myself, a career military man, both have backgrounds in service, so we love owning a business that allows us to make people happy and save them money. Plus, we are thrilled to open this location in Oklahoma, our home state, where there is so much opportunity for growth with auto/RV dealers, airports, stadiums, casinos, and much more. In fact, we’re off to such a fast start we are planning to add a new employee within the first six months. We’re happy to be back home in Oklahoma doing something we love!”

The statistics suggest that repairing and restoring, as opposed to upholstering and replacing, can save local business owners and residents hundreds of dollars on any damaged item. For example, the costs associated with upholstering any type of seat can be very steep, ranging anywhere from $120 to $450 per cushion. And according to Terri Sniegolski, Creative Colors International’s CEO, the commitment shared by all franchisees to help customers save money, and deliver on the company’s “We Can Fix That” philosophy, has been the key catalyst for the company’s expansion to 54 locations in 24 states with 125+ mobile units since its initial inception in 1980.

“We’re excited to open our next Creative Colors location in Oklahoma City because we know Frank and Lena share the same ‘We Can Fix That’ attitude our other successful franchisees possess,” said Sniegolski. “We are thrilled about our expansion in Oklahoma because we know the local business owners and customers in the greater Oklahoma City community will be eager to repair and restore their possessions at a fraction of the cost.”

Serving the automotive, commercial and furniture industries, Creative Colors International offers affordable solutions for tears, holes, scuffs, scratches and other types of damage found on leather, vinyl, plastic or fabric through on-site repair, restoration, cleaning, dyeing and protection.    For local residents, this means Creative Colors International can repair auto interiors, leather furniture, RV flooring, and boat vinyl, among other things. Additionally, for business owners, Creative Colors International can repair any upholstery found in critical locations around the company, such as waiting rooms, examination rooms, restaurant booths, hotel rooms, and theater seating, among others.
