What do you love about your job? What inspired you to start your business?
My father and grandfather owned flooring stores, and I grew up watching them work. My grandfather started as a janitor, worked his way up to become a manager, and found himself in a position to purchase the store he worked for.He started one of the largest flooring franchises in America until he got sick and sold the business to a competing franchise. Working in the flooring industry and following my dreams bring me back to those memories.
After spending many years working at my family’s local flooring store, I grew frustrated with the long and outdated process that customers had to deal with when buying floor covering. There had to be a better way, but nobody was doing it. They all had the same system. That is when I came up with Vineyard Floors, one of the first flooring stores to offer a mobile flooring showroom. It was a success. Customers love it! This, along with my other future ideas, will innovate and entirely change the flooring industry. The long-term goal is to have mobile showrooms across the United States providing customers with flooring that fit their needs at a good price and in a timely manner without having to leave their homes.
