July 13, 2021

You have a passion for giving new life to old furniture and love the idea of starting a furniture restoration business, being your own boss and setting your own hours, but you are intimidated because you’re not sure where to start.

Creative Colors International has the answers. CCI provides the roadmap for budding entrepreneurs, providing franchisees a four-week intensive training program to learn the tools of the trade and the skills to launch their business. CCI also offers ongoing consultation services that have been helping new business owners for more than 30 years avoid the pitfalls that others before them have struggled with.

There is a great demand for people who can give new life to old furniture in both the residential and commercial sectors, including restoring office chairs, restaurant booths, hotel bed headboards and medical furniture.

“Not everyone can afford to buy brand new. So we’re the alternative,” said Mark J. Bollman, CCI president.

CCI provides ongoing restoration services to help homeowners and businesses save money by restoring damaged and aging furniture.

By becoming a CCI franchise owner you are in business for yourself, but not by yourself. You work from home, setting your own hours while saving on overhead. You receive the training and assistance you need to get into business quickly and affordably.

You don’t need a large office or shop. You can start working out of your home or garage and grow into a larger workspace as you add employees. It’s a mobile business, so you go to the customer and either do the work onsite or in your home workspace.

CCI provides a model for you to grow and scale-up and build a business to increase income and give others work opportunities. It’s in CCI’s best interest to help franchisees succeed because they receive a royalty.

“We share in their success. Because if they make money, we make money,” Bollman said. “We want our franchisees and their employees to be happy.”

The advantage of restoring furniture is you help keep still valuable furniture out of landfills and save the customer 75 percent to 90 percent of what it would cost to replace it with something new. It’s a cost-effective solution and an in-demand business.

You also get the appreciation of grateful customers.

CCI also provide franchisees promotional materials including print ads, pamphlets and fliers and has vehicle graphics and uniforms for technicians. CCI’s home office exhibits at leading trade shows to help raise brand awareness that helps franchisees.
