Listing ID: 80652
This business is a unique and innovative business model revolutionizing the flooring industry. Ultimately, we are a labor company specializing in the installation of floors, not the sale of flooring products.
The owner/operator meets with customers, completes the installation estimate, and then allows the customer to source the actual flooring from anywhere they see fit. Once the estimate is performed and the job is booked, Owners manage subcontractors who complete the labor and spend their time as the main point of contact for the customer ensuring a smooth and professional experience.
By operating this type of model, Owners are home-based with no need for expensive real estate or complicated leases, they do not have any overhead as they have no need for flooring inventory, and they do not have any employees as the labor is completed by 10-99 subcontractors. This simple and cost-effective concept allows Owners to earn over $808K in Average Gross Sales and enjoy a quick ROI with our extremely attractive margins.
If that wasn’t enough to make the business attractive, the corporate team also handles the majority of the marketing, helping Owners find new customers, and runs a call center that fields all customer queries and completes the scheduling.

For initial training, we host Owners at our corporate headquarters in Colorado for two weeks. After that, they go back to their territory and run their business for 6-7 weeks while gaining true on-the-job experience. After this period, we invite them back to Colorado for an additional week of training, covering specifics related to their experience working the business. We have found this type of training to be extremely successful and something our Owners rave about!
The venture was started in 2008, making the business 14 years old.
