Artistic Couple Launches Newest Creative Colors International Franchise in Southeastern Michigan

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

ANN ARBOR, MI (PRWEB) April 19, 2017 - Creative Colors International, the nation’s leading on-site repair and restoration franchise, launched its newest location on April 3, 2017 in the Ann Arbor, Michigan area. 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 that are made of leather, vinyl, plastic and fabric.

Ann Arbor residents Mary-Shea and John Rozsypal both love to work with their eyes and hands and they like to keep items out of the waste stream. As they were looking for a new venture as empty nesters, they found Creative Colors International’s culture fit perfectly with their personal philosophy. The two both have degrees from the University of Michigan School of Art and Architecture.

After rising in the corporate business of global marketing for over 20 years, Mary-Shea was recently laid-off, while her husband, John, having practiced architecture for 45 years, was ready to step-back from the grind and together they yearned for a new entrepreneurial challenge. Mary-Shea’s research and the help of a consultant lead them to the careful consideration of several opportunities culminating in the couple’s agreement to open the newest Creative Colors International location right here in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

According to John, he’s thrilled to open this Creative Colors International location because the company’s revolutionary products and restoration techniques will help local customers save up to 90% in replacement fees by repairing worn and/or damaged materials. “Customer satisfaction is of the utmost importance and to offer them such a savings is rewarding for them as well as us. Restoring rather than replacing fits well with our life philosophy.”

“Mixing colors and restoring damaged items is right up our alley,” adds Mary-Shea. “We believe in restoring rather than replacing things. This is how we can save our customers money. We also are glad to create a legacy for our son, who is in college, but one day may join us in the business. And we find that the people leading CCI are very down to earth. It’s a family owned and operated business and they have made us feel as though we are part of their family – what a refreshing change from corporate America.”

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 74 locations in 27 states with 130+ mobile units since its initial inception in 1980.

“We’re excited to open our next Creative Colors location in Southeastern Michigan because we know Mary-Shea and John Rozsypal share the same ‘We Can Fix That’ attitude our other successful franchisees possess,” said Sniegolski. “We are thrilled about our expansion in the Ann Arbor area because we know the local business owners and customers in the 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.
