Former Software Tech Announces Purchase of Creative Colors International in Tampa

Industry Leading On-site Repair and Restoration Franchise Saves Local Customers 90% on Replacement Fees

Tampa, FL (PRWEB) July 07, 2015 - Creative Colors International, the nation’s leading on-site repair and restoration franchise, announced in June that area resident Stewart Gotlieb has recently purchased the Tampa location. This is big news as more local business owners and cost-conscious residents than ever before are seeking out alternatives to increasing upholstering charges and replacement fees associated with damaged possessions composed of leather, vinyl, plastic and fabric.

This rising local demand for cost-effective repair and restoration services is what inspired Stewart to purchase the Tampa-based Creative Colors International location on June 8th. According to Stewart, Creative Colors International’s revolutionary products and restoration techniques will help local customers save up to 90% on replacement fees by repairing worn and/or damaged materials.

“I come from a family of entrepreneurs and I always knew I wanted to eventually own my own business,” said Stewart. “Creative Colors is a great fit for me because it’s a proven model of success and it’s a hands-on company where I can make a real difference in the community I love. Tampa is a large territory and I’m excited to bring our unique restoration skills to consumers and businesses in this area.”

The statistics suggest that repairing and restoring, as opposed to upholstering and replacing, can save local business owners and residents hundreds of dollars on any damaged item. For example, the costs associated with upholstering any type of seat can be very steep, ranging anywhere from $120 to $450 per cushion. And according to Terri Sniegolski, Creative Colors International’s CEO, the commitment shared by all franchisees to help customers save money, and deliver on the company’s “We Can Fix That” philosophy, has been the key catalyst for the company’s expansion to 54 locations in 24 states with 125+ mobile units since its initial inception in 1980.

“We’re excited to re-open the Creative Colors location in Tampa because we know Stewart shares the same ‘We Can Fix That’ attitude our other successful franchisees possess,” said Sniegolski. “We are thrilled about our expansion in Florida because we know the local business owners and customers in the Tampa area will be eager to repair and restore their possessions at a fraction of the cost.”

Serving the automotive, commercial and furniture industries, Creative Colors International offers affordable solutions for tears, holes, scuffs, scratches and other types of damage found on leather, vinyl, plastic or fabric through on-site repair, restoration, cleaning, dyeing and protection. For local residents, this means Creative Colors International can repair auto interiors, leather furniture, RV flooring, and boat vinyl, among other things. Additionally, for business owners, Creative Colors International can repair any upholstery found in critical locations around the company, such as waiting rooms, examination rooms, restaurant booths, hotel rooms, and theater seating, among others.
