Booming Franchise Growth Offers Career Alternative

April 21, 2021

Capitalize on the booming franchising industry by considering a recession-proof career as a service technician with Creative Colors International Inc., a leader in leather and vinyl repair.

Propelled by the rollout of the vaccine and the reopening of schools across the country, the International Franchise Association forecasts the franchise industry will erase losses from last year and is slated to add 26,000 locations and nearly 800,000 new jobs in 2021. Franchising allows for rapid growth, employment, and reaction to the changing economic realities, compared with independent businesses. They are able to collaborate and share best practices throughout their system, allowing them to quickly adapt and achieve results. Franchised businesses offer job security and support during difficult times.

“CCI allows our service technicians to learn a new trade that offers a recession-proof solution for their future. Our technicians are able to escape the corporate grind with a role that provides the work-life balance and job security they need,” said CCI President Mark J. Bollman.

CCI offers a path to financial security and self-sufficiency. CCI’s service technicians are trained to repair or restore tears, burns, cuts, scratches, stains, fading and color restoration, seam slippage, and replacement parts in furniture, car interiors, boats, and recreational vehicles. Our service technicians possess good people and communication skills. They are self-starters and problem-solvers. Our technicians spend two to four weeks training at our corporate headquarters in Mokena, Illinois, to learn the skills they will need to achieve success in their new career.

If you are considering a career change, here are just a few of the benefits CCI offers its service technicians.

Mobile Opportunities

As corporate offices across the country shut their doors to comply with government orders and social distancing guidelines, Americans were thrust into the world of teleworking. They had to learn how to use teleconferencing tools and spend their days in makeshift home offices. Teleworking is a great option for people who are searching for flexibility and are tired of commuting. However, teleworking does have some drawbacks. It can wreak havoc on work-life balance and may make it difficult for workers to unplug from the office, according to the 2021 State of Remote Work, an online survey of 2,300 remote workers. It can also contribute to isolation, lack of motivation, and struggles with communicating and collaborating with coworkers.

CCI offers service technicians a mobile opportunity that allows you to set your own schedule and work at your own pace. While teleworking keeps you tied to your desk, CCI’s service technicians are out in the field performing repairs at car dealerships, marinas, and customers’ homes. It’s a great opportunity for someone who is outgoing and energetic. You have the opportunity to schedule service calls to accommodate your family’s schedule. Our service technicians ensure work doesn’t get in the way of attending important events, like baseball games and spelling bees.

Recession-Proof Option

CCI saves customers money by making repairs versus purchasing replacements. They also offer multiple revenue streams with robust B2B and B2C options. CCI’s B2B business offers business pricing that allows companies to take credit for the superior skills of our technicians. In addition to making furniture shine, CCI’s B2C business offers leather care kits and certified reconditioning programs to boost sales. During the pandemic, CCI added a Sanitizer & Disinfectant to its lineup to provide franchisees a way to boost sales and keep employees safe. The new product is a one-step, hospital-grade cleaner, deodorizer, and sanitizer designed for use on a variety of surfaces.

 Unlimited Earnings Potential

CCI offers its service technicians the chance to dictate the amount on their paychecks. The company’s high commission structure enables workers to control their earnings. Many locations also offer a full-time benefits package, including a 401k.
