Nation’s Leading On-Site Repair and Restoration Franchise Ranked #224 in Entrepreneur’s Annual Franchise 500 List

(MOKENA, IL. – January 18, 2019) — Creative Colors International, the nation’s leading on-site repair and restoration franchise, recently earned the #224 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 #224 for its outstanding performance in areas including unit growth, financial strength and stability, and brand power.

“Last year, we were honored to be ranked at #341, so to see our business grow and succeed at such a pace in just one year is very fulfilling,” says Mark J. Bollman, President of Creative Colors International. “Our customers know we have a proven process that saves them time and money. Our franchise partners know we have a proven business model that allows them to balance their personal and professional growth.  We are proud of this distinction and we want to thank everyone in the Creative Colors family for the role they played in earning it.”

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.

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.

“As we celebrate 40 years of producing the Franchise 500, it’s a good opportunity to step back and look at how much has changed since that first ranking in 1980,” says Jason Feifer, Editor-in-Chief of Entrepreneur. “While the franchise business model has changed little, the strongest franchise brands are constantly evolving and innovating to keep up with changing trends and technology.”

Over its 40 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 company.
