A close-knit, Chicago-area family who began restoring torn and faded leather, vinyl, and other fabrics on-site has announced plans to tap into a series of new markets and expand their franchise.

A leader in the repair, reconditioning, and color restoration of leather, vinyl, fabric, plastics, and carpeting in the automotive, furniture, commercial, and residential markets, Creative Colors International operates more than 60 franchised and company-owned locations across the United States and Canada, with 150+ mobile units providing on-site services. The company’s goal is to expand to an eventual 450 franchises.

“As technology has progressed, we have worked with major companies and invested significantly in research and development to enhance our products and techniques for effective and long-term results,” said Mark J. Bollman, president of Creative Colors International.

The company’s current customer base includes car dealers (new, used, parts, service departments, etc.), auctions, body shops, rental cars, insurance markets, and the airline and furniture industries. The focus of expansion includes restaurants, hotels, motels, government facilities, and hospitals.
