Color Glo Certified as a World-Class Franchise

LINCOLN, Neb. (February 7, 2013) – Color Glo has received World-Class Franchise® certification from the Franchise Research Institute®.

The recognition comes after an independent survey conducted by the Franchise Research Institute, in which 81.3% of all Color Glo franchisees participated. The survey was designed to determine the level of franchisee satisfaction within the Color Glo franchise system.

“One of the most important means of creating and maintaining a truly successful franchise system is to meet or exceed the expectations of its franchisees,” says Jeff Johnson, founder and CEO of the Franchise Research Institute.  A key step in this process is to obtain open, honest feedback from franchisees through confidential, third-party research. Color Glo was not afraid to ask their franchise owners tough questions, and their high marks provide scientific proof that they are consistently meeting franchisees’ needs.”

The survey asked Color Glo franchise owners to rate their franchisor through a series of questions in categories such as overall quality, growth potential, support and communication.

Among the responses received from Color Glo franchisees:

  • 100% gave a  positive grade to the overall quality of the franchisor.
  • 100% responded positively when asked about the overall communication between home office personnel and franchisees.
  • 100% gave a positive rating to the quality of products and services received from the franchisor.


According to Johnson, “Color Glo understands the importance of the partnership between franchisor and franchisees, and relies on unbiased data to make decisions which help to maximize franchisee sales and profitability.”

States Color Glo President Gary Smith, “Consider a business with no seasonal or economic swing compared to conventional markets. Imagine for a moment where you find cloth/velour, leather, plastic and vinyl upholstery and you would discover the unlimited potential of Color Glo as a business for you.  If you enjoy working with your hands and enjoy working for yourself, then just imagine Color Glo® in your future!”
