Industry Leading On-site Repair and Restoration Franchise Saves Local Customers 90% on Replacement Fees

We Can Fix That!

We were attracted to the Creative Colors International business model because we knew we’d have the ability to generate positive cash flow within a reasonable time period without an enormous up-front investment. - Curtis Martin

Creative Colors International, the nation’s leading on-site repair and restoration franchise, launched its newest location in April 2016 in Palmyra, PA. 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.

After working as dairy farmers for more than 34 years, Curtis and Dolly Martin decided to take the leap into franchise ownership when their son, Andrew, agreed to their proposal to go into business together. As a former chemist and sales engineer, he was yearning to be an independent business owner and entrepreneur. According to Curtis Martin, the family trio was introduced to the powerful Creative Colors International business model by a franchise consultant.

“We discovered Creative Colors International in the process of researching opportunities with a franchise consultant,” says Curtis. “We were attracted to the business model because we knew we’d have the ability to generate positive cash flow within a reasonable time period without an enormous up-front investment.”

This rising local demand for cost-effective repair and restoration services is also one of the reasons the Martin family joined forces to open the newest Creative Colors International (CCI) location right here in Hershey, PA. According to Curtis, 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.

“We save customers money by repairing vinyl, plastic, cloth and leather surfaces instead of replacing them,” says Curtis. “And as a family comprised of two dairy farmers and a chemist, we love the fact we are offering an affordable, efficient and tech-savvy solution to business owners in Hershey. Plus, to top things off, we travel direct to our customers to complete projects on-site. All in all, a perfect business opportunity for two determined farmers and a hands-on scientist!”

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 Hershey because we know the Martins share the same ‘We Can Fix That’ attitude our other successful franchisees possess,” said Sniegolski. “We are thrilled about our expansion in Pennsylvania because we know the local business owners and customers in the 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.
