Creative Colors offers not only support from the home office but from other techs and franchisee owners as well. More than one franchisee stated you were not just joining a company, you were becoming a part of a family of business owners that were there to support each other. - David Biggerstaff
Mason, OH (PRWEB) November 13, 2017
Creative Colors International, the nation’s leading on-site repair and restoration franchise, launched its newest location on October 30 in Cincinnati, OH. 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 that are made of leather, vinyl, plastic and fabric.
David and Angie Biggerstaff recently moved to the Cincinnati area from North Carolina for the sole purpose of starting their Creative Colors franchise. The couple has two grown daughters and were both looking for a career change before joining CCI. They felt strongly about the unique and wide range of repair services offered by CCI and the need for those services in the local market. The Biggerstaffs plan on starting with one company van and anticipate adding another over the next year.
David Biggerstaff began his career by purchasing a Farm and Garden business shortly after graduating college. He has been an insurance agent for the past 15 years, but was seeking a different career and enjoyed a job in which he would have the chance of working with his hands. Angie has a college degree in accounting and handled the finances for the family’s Farm and Garden business. The two plan on working together and handling all aspects of the business.
According to David, he’s thrilled to open this Creative Colors International location because the company’s revolutionary products and restoration techniques will help local customers save up to 90% in replacement fees by repairing worn and/or damaged materials.
“I feel my keys to success will be my experience in sales and customer service,” said David. “I also feel one of the things that made me a successful insurance agent was my ability to communicate well with my clients. I approach each client with the attitude of how can the products and services I offer benefit my customer the most.
“We had been looking at this industry and saw the diversity that Creative Colors offers, not just automotive. We spoke with over 25 franchisees and they all shared one common theme, support. All spoke highly of the support from the home office and the ability to be able to speak to anyone at most anytime for help.
Also, we loved the professionalism found in every aspect of the company. The amount of training we receive was a major factor, too. We had no experience in this field and knew we would not only need great training but a lot of support afterward. Creative Colors offers not only support from the home office but from other techs and franchisee owners as well. More than one franchisee stated you were not just joining a company, you were becoming a part of a family of business owners that were there to support each other.”
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 80 locations in 28 states with 160+ mobile units since its initial inception in 1980.
“We’re excited to open our next Creative Colors location in Cincinnati because we know David and Angie Biggerstaff share the same ‘We Can Fix That’ attitude our other successful franchisees possess,” said Sniegolski. “We are thrilled about our expansion in the Cincinnati area 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.
