Color Me Beautiful, an internationally – recognized cosmetic company is trying to make a difference by offering “Business Grants” to candidates across the country – of all ages – who would like to own their own small business, but do not have the “start-up” funding to do so.
Color Me Beautiful is offering grants of up to $10,000 in free product and full start-up assistance to chosen candidates who wish to try their hand at owning a Mall Kiosk Cosmetic business. It is a small start, but there are no educational requirements, which means that the op- portunity could be life-changing for someone who never finished high school or college.
Color Me Beautiful Brands is the parent company for a number of premium cosmetic brands including Color Me Beautiful, Gaye Hayman of Beverly Hills, Adrien Arpel, Flori Roberts, Inter- face Cosmetics, & Patti LaBelle.
“Our Business Grants‟ will give worthy candidates an opportunity to own their own cosmetic business in malls across America—with no initial investment other than determination and expert sales skills,” explains Steve DiAntonio, Chairman and CEO of Color Me Beautiful, Inc. “Rather than put them into a costly storefront with thousands in overhead, we set up these worthy entrepreneurs in a mall kiosk, provide them with top-selling cosmetic products from one of our six nationally-branded companies, pay the security deposit and first month‟s lease, provide signage and marketing materials, and position the candidate with one of our already successful kiosk owners for a 6-week hands-on training program for which they get paid while they learn.”
Interested candidates should call and schedule an initial interview through Color Me Beautiful‟s Kiosk Department—1-800-COLORME x 1351. From there, they will go through a series of interviews and skills evaluations. Once accepted, the candidate will be paired with a kiosk owner to begin training and their business ownership, for which they will be paid.
Color Me Beautiful will set up the new owner‟s kiosk with product and signage, as well as will negotiate leasing arrangements with mall management. Color Me Beautiful will pay security deposits, including the first month‟s lease to ensure that the new owner is off to a solid start.
Candidates may choose the mall in which to display their new business, as well as choose products from one of the six high-profile brands currently owned by Color Me Beautiful.
Currently, there are over 50 successful Color Me Beautiful small business owners. With the expansion of the grants program, the Company hopes to more than triple this number over the next 6 months.
