ABOUT Creative Colors International Franchise

CREATIVE COLORS INTERNATIONAL, INC. started in July 1991 through its affiliate J & J’s Creative Colors, Inc. J & J’s Creative Colors began business in 1980 dyeing, repairing, and restoring leather, fabric and vinyl, plastics, and fiberglass. Currently there are 18 mobile units in operation servicing the Chicagoland and surrounding suburbs.

The markets currently being serviced are:

  • Auto markets — Car Dealers — (new, used, parts, service)
  • Auctions
  • Body shops
  • Rental cars
  • Insurance markets
  • Airline industry
  • Furniture industry

There are many other markets that have remained untouched and will be the focus of J & J’s expansion in the years ahead. These markets are to include restaurants, hotels, motels, government facilities, and hospitals.

As growth continued through the years and additional mobile units were added, customer demands and continued growth spurred the necessity for a much larger expansion program. Franchising was selected because of the closeness of franchises as TEAM MEMBERS. The ongoing support, training at headquarters, training in a franchise territory, along with continued research in products and techniques, would provide the base needed to duplicate J & J’s success. This would allow tremendous opportunities for others (franchisees) to build a solid future in a successful business


We are fortunate to have one of the most experienced leadership teams in franchising. It is under their guidance that we have had and continue to see our great successes.

CREATIVE COLORS INTERNATIONAL, INC. is a company where a family atmosphere is instilled in each franchise. We portray our family style business to our franchisees so that they will use these values in growing their own business. Quality and service is the future of our industry and we strive continually for both at C.C.I.

Our franchise system currently has 68 locations including our affiliate and company owned locations. We offer our services in the following states: Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Virginia, and Wisconsin. We also operate in London, Ontario, Canada. A total of 125+ mobile units are providing these services throughout the U.S. and Canada. We will continually expand each year adding new franchises each year until we reach our saturation point of 500 franchisees in the United States.

All franchises have an exclusive territory containing all markets for continued growth. Each franchise develops their territory by adding mobile units to provide services. The continued growth is built through name recognition, quality, and service. Through their own motivation and desires, a rewarding business is built for themselves and their families.

Our concern for the individuals extends to our customers too. We may know that we are better than our competition, but we are really no better than the treatment we give our customers.

Now you can provide dealers with a convenient, cost-effective way to restore visual appeal — and value — to their vehicles. And you can enjoy the freedom and satisfaction of owning your own business … as a Creative Colors International franchise owner.
