SKC Enterprises has grown to 54 stores and over 400 employees in Illinois, Missouri, Indiana, Arkansas, Kentucky and Tennessee. They have four Rent N Roll stores with the fifth opening in July of 2012. His wife, Sharon, ran Imagery Marketing from 1999-2010 when she recently retired and handed the reigns over to Marty Smith.

Carrico and Sharon started as many small business owners with little cash and huge dreams. Larry and Sharon are very involved in their community.

Carrico currently serves as the Chairman of the Ronald McDonald House in St Louis and has served as the President of APRO. Larry continues to create new ideas to benefit the rent to own industry. He used developers at Imagery Marketing to create shopping online, RTO payments, Company Cake, an online learning platform, and RTOTV which streams video via the internet to a stores display televisions. Their newest creation is a RTO Kiosk where clients can shop, make a payment, complete an order, sign up for social media, send a BOO or B.R.A.V.O or view the most current promotion at a store.
