Franchisee opens his first ColorTyme in Ashland, Kentucky

Experienced rent-to-own professional plans ColorTyme expansion in the area.

January 20, 2012 // // ASHLAND, Ky. – Mike Courts is a rent-to-own professional who has, for years, wanted to own his own ColorTyme stores. After years of managing four stores for a competitor, Courts made his move at the beginning of this year. He opened his first ColorTyme at 5850 Route 60, Summit Plaza in Ashland, Ky.

“For quite some time I’ve known I wanted to do my own thing with ColorTyme,” said Courts. ”I’ve been in the industry for years and knew I wanted to be with this chain in this area. It’s exciting to introduce the brand here.”

Courts has future plans to open a total of four ColorTyme locations in Ohio, W. Virginia and Kentucky.

Like all ColorTyme stores, the new Ashland location offers a variety of convenient payment plans without a credit check. The owners and staff intend to give residents a unique rental experience by creating a hometown atmosphere with superior customer service.

“Unlike many large, corporate-owned chains, ColorTyme is unique in that we truly create meaningful relationships with customers. We are proud to have this opportunity to serve this area and are committed to providing personalized service and low prices that can’t be found anywhere else.”
