Nation’s Leading On-Site Repair & Restoration Franchise Earns #341 Ranking in Prestigious List

Mokena, IL, (January 26, 2018) – Creative Colors International, the nation’s leading on-site repair and restoration franchise (specializing in the mobile repair and restoration of leather, vinyl, fabric, plastic and carpeting in the automotive, furniture, commercial and residential markets), is celebrating the honor of being ranked in the exclusive Franchise 500® list by Entrepreneur magazine. The unique franchise business is ranked at #341, meaning Creative Colors International has achieved outstanding performance in areas such as franchise unit growth, financial strength, stability, and brand power.

“We have always made innovation, constant research, developing better techniques and training, and of course, the quality care of our customers, our primary priority,” says Mark Bollman, President of Creative Colors International. “Now, to be recognized by inclusion in Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500®, for our business success as well, is a tribute to our staff, employees, and dedicated franchisees. This high honor will only serve to spur us on to grow and prosper even more in 2018 and beyond.”

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.

“This year’s Franchise 500® ranking features both up-and-comers who bring fresh ideas to an ever- changing industry, as well as savvy stalwarts that have thrived for decades. We are proud to highlight and celebrate them all,” says Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur. “Our results show that the industry is strong—and that the most enduring franchisors are those who learn to balance innovation with reliability. That’s how to attract new customers while keeping the old ones happy.”

The key factors that go into Entrepreneur’s evaluation include costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability. All franchises are given a cumulative score based on more than 150 data points, and the 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the Franchise 500® in ranking order.

Over its 39 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’ position on the ranking is a testament to its strength as a franchise opportunity.
