Evan Kelly of Fibrenew Boulder Golden, is self-described outdoor enthusiast. He was introduced to Fibrenew through a Franchise Broker while he was recovering from a life changing mountain bike accident. He had been in the automotive towing industry for 8 years and he needed something new and different, something more family friendly, but still something rewarding and hands-on in nature. The Fibrenew opportunity with its growth potential, freedom to schedule his own time and green renewal aspects really appealed to him.

Repair minor issues yourself with a liquid leather and vinyl repair kit that includes several tints so you can match the leather's color. Practice applying the repair solution on a scrap piece of leather or vinyl to hone your skills for an imperceptible repair.

Dick Streever – The Renovation/Restoration Man Fibrenew of Wilkes-Barre/Scranton

Dick Streever – The Renovation/Restoration Man Fibrenew of Wilkes-Barre/Scranton | Franchise Business Opportunities | Scoop.it
Fibrenew of Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, specializes in the repair, restoration and renewal of leather, plastic, vinyl, fabric and upholstery servicing six major markets. They include automotive, aviation, commercial, medical, marine and residential. I’ve seen the results of his restorations and they are amazing. Just think about that old leather chair or couch in your grandparent’s home that you and your family tossed. You thought, “It was gorgeous 40 years ago, but I don’t want it, so my kids won’t.” Well, maybe it’s time to think again. Replacing that top grain leather furniture for the same quality leather today is astronomically expensive.
Bob Johnston's insight:
“The Fibrenew family is so completely supportive of their franchise owners from not only a financial and business perspective, but they are also supportive from a personal perspective.”
