Mokena, IL Recently, Creative Colors International (CCI) was acknowledged for the third consecutive year by, the nations leading multicultural social media site, as one of the top 100 women-owned businesses in Illinois for 2014. The award, known as the Div500, represents the most unique class of companies who have earned the distinction of fostering a culture of sustainable growth among the communities they serve.

With 60 percent of its national system comprised of female owners and technicians, CCI, a franchise that offers affordable on-site repair for fabric damage and saves people up to 90 percent of replacement costs, was ranked among the top 50 spots at no. 45. Its founding company, J&Js Creative Colors, has also been certified with the Womens Business Enterprise Council (WBENC) since 2012 as a women-owned business through the Womens Business Development Center Chicago (WBDC), a regional certifying partner of the WBENC.

The original founder of J&Js and CCI, JoAnn Foster, was adamant about being a reputable women-owned company. Since the business was sold to the second generation, weve strived to stick to JoAnns mission which makes this recognition very fulfilling, said Terri Sniegolski, CEO of CCI. We take great pride in our work and our team of qualified, passionate experts, and its great to be acknowledged for our efforts for another year in our home state of Illinois.

This year marks DiversityBusiness.coms 14th annual listing of Illinois top businesses with over 1.3 million participants. The Top Businesses lists are determined by a selection committee which evaluates the eligibility for all submissions in each award category. The committee bases their decision on a set of criteria which includes reviewing each entrants business profile, website and gross annual sales submitted. The businesses deemed the best have become highly coveted among corporations, government agencies and educational institutions who desire to increase opportunities with privately-held businesses.
