Former Oilman Launches Newest Creative Colors International Location in Lowville, NY

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

LOWVILLE, NY (PRWEB) March 11, 2016 - Creative Colors International, the nation’s leading on-site repair and restoration franchise, launched its newest New York location on February 1, 2016 in Lewis County. This is big news as more local business owners and cost-conscious residents than ever before are seeking out alternatives to astronomical upholstering charges and replacement fees associated with damaged possessions composed of leather, vinyl, plastic and fabric.

A chance to get out of “the corporate rat race,” is what inspired husband and wife team Tim and Janice Bush to open the newest Creative Colors International (CCI) location right here in Lowville, NY. According to Tim Bush, 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.

“It’s great to work for a company that can save customers so much when they repair rather than replace their items,” said Tim Bush.

Prior to launching his Creative Colors International location, Tim Bush has a very satisfying life from an outsider’s perspective. He was working for his family’s successful oil business that his great grandfather had started in 1898, served as a volunteer fireman, and enjoyed a variety of activities as an avid outdoorsman. However, Tim said the corporate world had simply burned him out.

“While I am very appreciative of the opportunity to work alongside so many great people who have helped my great grandfather’s company endure the test of time, it was time for a change,” said Tim Bush. “The corporate grind had begun to make me tired and unhappy and I began exploring franchise opportunities that allowed me to maximize my talents as a business mind who likes to get his hands dirty. Creative Colors International was the first franchise opportunity we explored and we knew it was a perfect fit immediately. My wife and I are happy we’ll be controlling our own destiny as Creative Colors International franchise owners!”

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 toTerri 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 open our next Creative Colors location in Lowville because we know Tim and Janice share the same ‘We Can Fix That’ attitude our other successful franchisees possess,” said Sniegolski. “We are thrilled about our expansion in New York because we know the local business owners and customers in the Lewis County community 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.
