CCI Technicians Make Family a Holiday Priority

December 26, 2019

Creative Colors International Inc. is lighting up the holiday season by offering workers interested in venturing down a new career path the chance to conquer Christmas spending hurdles, reduce stress and enjoy quality family time.

The holidays are a season of generosity, indulgence and merriment. But, fulfilling all the Christmas wishes comes at a price. Finding the funds to provide holiday magic can be a challenge. The average American will spend approximately $1,047 this Christmas, with total spending projected to reach $730 billion, according to estimates from the National Retail Federation, the world’s largest retail trade association. Shoppers already spent an average of $362 over the Thanksgiving holiday, which is up 16 percent from last year.

Wallets aren’t the only area of concern this month. Sixty-two percent of Americans find the holidays stressful, according to an online survey of 2,280 adults conducted by Healthline, a health and wellness website. Striking a balance between work and family in December remains a challenge for many American workers. In addition to finances, the top causes of stress during the holidays are scheduling and making travel plans, picking the right gifts, and overeating.

Couple high credit card bills with trying to secure vacation time to spend with your family, and the month of December loses some of its appeal. Make it one of your New Year’s resolutions to explore the possibility of hopping off the corporate ladder and taking charge of your career and finances by opting for a job as a service technician at CCI.

CCI is the leader in mobile leather, vinyl and fabric repair and restoration. Service technicians use proprietary techniques to repair and restore furniture, automobiles, boats and RVs. Technicians at CCI have the ability to schedule their own hours, allowing them to make family a holiday priority. The high commission opportunities at CCI give technicians the chance to stop living paycheck to paycheck. CCI offers unlimited earnings potential, alleviating Christmas shopping woes. Many locations provide benefits packages, including a 401k.

CCI opened its doors in 1991 as the franchising arm of J&J’s Creative Colors Inc., which started offering mobile leather repair in 1980. CCI has franchises in nearly every state and is expected to generate $25 million in systemwide revenue this year. The Mokena, Illinois-based company was founded by Jim and JoAnn Foster. The husband and wife duo made family values a top priority of their business model. CCI portrays its family-style business to franchisees and technicians so they can see how implementing these values grows their business.

“The kindness and family focus of the Creative Colors International team played a major role in my decision to start franchising with them,” said Jeff Boyer, owner of CCI DFW, which operates seven mobile units and employs eight technicians in the Dallas area. “You need a talented team to be able to do the repairs correctly. Every job is different, and our technicians use training to find a solution and make our customers happy.”

The second-generation business provides comprehensive training and ongoing support to make sure its service technicians are able to offer excellent service to its customers. CCI uses proprietary techniques to restore, dye and repair leather, plastics, vinyl, fabric and fiberglass. The company ensures each technician gets ample on-the-job support, with telephone and online options for questions that may come up when performing a repair.
