In 1990, Ms. D'Imperio acquired sole ownership of Color Your Carpet, Inc. and became its franchisor. Under her exclusive direction, Color Your Carpet® has received America's most prestigious franchise awards.
Beginning in 1990, the first credible and scientific assessment of the best evolution and management of franchised businesses, the "Gold 100" award, was created by the accounting firm of Arthur Andersen & Co., S.C. and published in the November issue of Success Magazine. The primary focus of the survey was to rate franchise companies based on franchisee input and satisfaction. Color Your Carpet® ranked in the top 50 of the "Gold 100" in 1990, 1991 and 1992, published annually in Success.
In December 1990, Success Magazine further rated Color Your Carpet® as the #1 Service Franchise "Up & Coming for the '90s" of all franchises birthed since 1987 and in June 1993 was also rated as #5 in the" Best Home Based Franchises in America". Then, in 1993, Ernst & Young, a distinguished American accounting firm, compiled the "Gold 100" which included a franchisee "report card" based on success, satisfaction and individual evaluation of the respective franchisor. Color Your Carpet® maintained its top rating in the "Gold 100" in 1993 & 1994.
Color Your Carpet® is also listed in many books, such as The Best Home Based Franchises (Gregory Mutusky, 1992) and The 220 Best Franchises to Buy (Constance Jones, 1993,1998) and in all subsequent reprints to date*
Color Your Carpet® has not advertised in any of these publications or paid anyone for these distinguished recognitions. Both Color Your Carpet® and Franchise Profiles International received published acclaim in the two latest franchise books, The Best Franchises To Buy (Walter Zooi) and The Best Franchise Resources (P. Edwards)
