Creative Colors International, the nation’s leading on-site repair and restoration franchise, will launch its newest location on March 19, in the Summerville, South Carolina area. This is big news, as more local business owners and cost-conscious residents than ever are seeking alternatives to astronomical upholstering charges and replacement fees associated with damaged possessions made of leather, vinyl, plastic and fabric.
The new Creative Colors franchise will be owned by Joe Moorer, who has lived in Summerville for 30 years. Prior to joining CCI, he spent 17 years with two local companies in quality control, overseeing the standards and accuracy on a production process. He will continue to operate his own home inspection business in the Summerville area as well.
Moorer is also a veteran of the United States Air Force Reserve. During his time with the Air Force Reserves, he was an Air Transportation Specialist, shipping cargo from one location to another. He spent six years in the infantry with the Army National Guard (1984-1990). Moorer then returned to the Air Force Reserve in 2001 with an air transportation unit and stayed until his retirement in 2015.
According to Moorer, 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 percent in replacement fees by repairing worn and/or damaged materials. “Creative Colors is a well-known company with a very good reputation. Its mobile services make it much more convenient for the customer. The CCI brand stands out to me the most and it offers others a significant savings on any of their repair needs.
“After learning about Creative Colors, I was attracted to the concept because of the need for those services in our area. Our Summerville location provides a good customer base for both car and boat owners who live near the coast. I think there is a good opportunity in this market due to the proximity to the airport, the number of tourists in Charleston and local rental car companies here. We expect to service customers in a 40-mile radius around Summerville.”
Further, 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 82 locations in 28 states with 160+ mobile units since its initial inception in 1980.
“We’re excited to open our next Creative Colors location in the Summerville area because we know that Joe shares the same ‘We Can Fix That’ attitude our other successful franchisees possess,” said Sniegolski. “We are thrilled about our expansion near the South Carolina coast 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.”
