Nation’s Leading On-Site Repair and Restoration Franchise Ranked #410 in Entrepreneur’s Annual Franchise 500 List

Creative Colors International, the nation’s leading on-site repair and restoration franchise, recently earned the #410 ranking in Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500®, the world’s first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking.

Placement in the Franchise 500 is a highly sought-after honor in the franchise industry, as evidenced by the fact that Entrepreneur received more than 1,000 applications this year, making it one of the company’s most competitive rankings ever.

Recognized as an invaluable resource for potential franchisees, the Franchise 500 ranked Creative Colors International as #410 for its outstanding performance in areas including unit growth, financial strength and stability, and brand power.

Creative Colors International is a unique mobile repair and restoration franchise business specializing in the repair, reconditioning, protection, and color restoration of leather, vinyl, fabric, plastic, and carpeting in the automotive, furniture, commercial, and residential markets.

“Creative Colors International has successfully grown an innovative business with a focus on family values. Our company’s ability to provide proprietary mobile services designed to save our customers money has enabled us to expand nationwide,” said Mark J. Bollman, President of Creative Colors International. “To be honored again in Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 for our business success is a tribute to our staff, employees, and dedicated franchisees.”

The key factors that go into the evaluation of the Franchise 500 include costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability. Each franchise is given a cumulative score based on an analysis of more than 150 data points, and the 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the Franchise 500 in ranking order.

"The 500 companies on this list all have something in common: They understand what consumers want now,” says Entrepreneur editor in chief Jason Feifer. “They may be an upstart in a brand-new category, or they may be a brand like Dunkin’ that’s ranked highly on our list for decades. But either way, making our list means they’re forward-thinking, nimble, and closely in touch with their customers’ needs — because, in an ever-changing business environment, that’s what a franchise must do to thrive."

Over its 41 years in existence, the Franchise 500 has become both a dominant competitive measure for franchisors and a primary research tool for potential franchisees. Creative Colors International’s position on the ranking is a testament to its strength as a franchise opportunity.
