Katherine Frank Creative Celebrates 20th Anniversary
Katherine Frank Creative, Inc., a Creative Solutions Company headquartered in Lombard is celebrating their 20th Anniversary in business. Specializing in exhibit design, the organization has developed a strong presence in various industries and verticals including Beauty, Restaurant, House wares, Entertainment, and Merchandise Mart Showrooms (Design, Wedding, and Apparel).
Kathy Cacciato, Company President and member of the Woman Business Enterprise, recalls the moment their dream became a reality: "Frank started this company with two friends in one of our children's bedrooms. At the time, I was a Regional Manager for United Distillers and we had a goal of two years to make Frank's mission succeed. Here we are, 20 years later, extremely humbled and proud to still have the same passion and drive to do what we love every day."
While KFCI continues to survive and thrive in a world where creative solutions are found on every corner, it wasn't always easy for this husband and wife duo to keep their work family afloat. When the economy crashed in 2008, CEO, Frank Cacciato watched as his longtime clients scale back their needs or simply stop requesting their services due to necessary budget cuts. But something changed in 2011 and Cacciato cites the company's experience and willingness to adapt to their clients ever-changing needs as reasons for the successful turnaround that has gotten them to where they are today.
"Being a family-owned business helps us understand the challenges most small businesses face daily. It has taken years for us to establish our name and garner the respect that we are so grateful for today," said Frank. "Our ability to adapt and diversify among various industry has enabled us to work with companies of any size and yet still treat each one like they are the only one."
However, it's important to note that it doesn't all start and end with work. The KFCI team is fortunate to have made an extensive list of family friends through their business, most of which will last a lifetime and that is an achievement no exhibit build can match.
