Celebrate Boss’s Day by kicking your job to the curb and tackling a new career that puts you in charge of your future.
Boss’s Day is celebrated annually in October in both the United States and Canada. Traditionally, Boss’s Day was established to show appreciation and recognition for all the dedicated bosses. Creative Colors International Inc., the nation’s mobile leader in leather and vinyl repair, encourages hard-working Americans to use this day as an opportunity to take charge of their future and become their own boss.
“The Creative Colors International vinyl and leather repair franchise has been designed for entrepreneurs who want to enjoy the rewards of their efforts,” said Mark J. Bollman, president and co-owner of the Mokena, Illinois-based franchisor. “CCI puts tremendous growth potential at your fingertips and features modest start-up costs, complete training and on-going support. CCI is a great opportunity for a person to become their own boss.”
One of the primary causes of stress for many Americans is coping with their boss, according to the American Institute of Stress. At least 52 percent of corporate workers are not completely satisfied with their potential for promotion, and 65 percent experience on-the-job stress, according to a recent Gallup poll. They are hungry for a chance to venture out on their own. Three out of every five Americans want to open their own business, according to a recent study by Vistaprint, a small-business resource.
Fear of failure and financial concerns keep many people chained to their corporate desks, relying on their boss to map out their career trajectory. Entrepreneurship offers individuals the chance to be in control, work flexible schedules and unlock potential profits.
If being your own boss sounds ideal, the next step is to find an opportunity you can afford and enjoy. Starting a business from scratch gives you the autonomy and control you desire, but it’s a risky proposition. More than 20 percent of businesses fail during the first year, and 30 percent fail by the end of year two, according to Fundera, a financial resource for small businesses.
Franchising provides budding entrepreneurs with the chance to hop off the corporate hamster wheel by operating a proven business model with ample training and support. As a franchisee, you will have the backing of a parent company that wants you to succeed, as well as an entire system of franchisee peers offering knowledge and insights to help you generate profits and retain employees.
Mobile Leader in Leather and Vinyl Repairs
CCI performs on-site repairs to restore damaged items to like-new condition while providing your customer significant cost savings versus replacement; sometimes as much as a 90 percent savings. The company uses proprietary tools and methods to meticulously eliminate fading, tears, rips, scrapes, gouges, scratches and scuffs. In many cases, we can even successfully restore items that have been damaged by fire or water to a like-new condition. CCI provides top-quality leather, vinyl, fabric and upholstery repairs, as well as exceptional customer service. Following the outbreak of COVID-19, CCI started offering sanitizing and disinfecting services using a proprietary, hospital-grade cleaner and deodorizer.
State-of-the-Art Training Program
New CCI franchisees receive four weeks of intensive training to get them ready to operate their mobile business. The initial training includes two weeks of classroom and hands-on training to learn the basics. New franchisees are taught CCI’s technical, operations, sales and managerial skills. Next, they spend a week learning about the administrative side of the business. The last week is spent with a franchisee during their grand opening to help get their business up and running. But, training doesn’t end after a new franchisee takes the wheel. CCI offers ongoing assistance through advanced technical seminars, annual conferences, field visits, as well as online and phone support.
Promotional and Marketing Support
In addition to training and ongoing support, new franchisees receive promotional materials and access to CCI’s exclusive product line. CCI offers print ads, pamphlets and fliers, as well as vehicle graphics and uniforms by order. CCI’s home office exhibits at leading trade shows across the country to raise brand awareness for corporate accounts. They also offer booths and tools for franchise owners to exhibit at smaller shows in their local markets.
