Are you an advertising or marketing pro who loves the challenge of developing ads that sell--but hates having a boss? Maybe you should try being the boss, as owner of a Creativworks franchise.
The St. Louis-based company provides "one-stop shopping" for creative services, ranging from logo design to public relations; media buying; Web site development; print, radio and TV advertising; and more. The franchise's retail store format means clients--primarily small and midsized businesses--can walk in, no appointment necessary, for help with their advertising or marketing campaigns.
Start-up costs begin at approximately $268,000; the company is seeking franchisees nationwide.
