PEOPLE VISIT A FLOORING SHOWROOM WHEN THEY’RE READY TO BUY!
Effort versus reward: unlike most retail environments, almost everyone that enters your showroom is a serious prospect. To be successful is really quite simple…
You and your employees need to:
- Ask the right questions
- Listen to the answers
- Guide customers on their options
- Take their order
- Take payment
- Arrange delivery
- Suggest local fitters (we don’t fit floors)
- ...and check the customer is happy!

OWN-BRAND SALES MAKE HAPPY CUSTOMERS AND GREAT MARGINS!
While your customers may arrive in your store to see and touch the big-name flooring brands that you stock, your exclusive, innovative product ranges will soon take their attention!
Selling these higher-margin products benefits you and will delight your customers: they can enjoy personal guidance in buying on-trend, exclusive flooring at an amazing price.
Meanwhile, your local competitors generally supply only those large brands that people can buy cheaper online!
Your showroom will stand out for its quality, not be involved in a race to the bottom on price.

FOLLOW PEOPLE WHO HAVE SUCCEEDED
Co-founders Richard and Ross have developed the business with solid foundations, having never borrowed to finance their expansion. The business was started with £500, left to Richard by his aunts. What these childhood friends have done over the past 20 years is a testament to their approach to do things properly, and that’s what they’re looking to share with ambitious franchisees looking to emulate their success.
“We don’t rush, we do things properly and always establish solid foundations before pushing forwards. We have complete supply chain ownership from the forest to the floor, because sustainability matters to us. And we have a solid business model to share that can deliver you very healthy returns.”
“We want successful franchisees to enjoy the same lifestyles that we do. We are all family people who work hard and play hard, enjoying the rewards of our efforts. Everyone has dreams, whether taking control of their time, building a business empire or enjoying nice holidays, cars and the rest!”
“Richard and Ross just have so much energy and passion. I wanted to buy into someone else’s business because they’d done it before, and with Richard and Ross, not only had they done it before but wood flooring was their life and their passion. Their passion meant everything, it’s exactly what I was looking for. If someone doesn’t have passion for their own business, then why should I? Infectious is the word I’d use to describe it. The support has been amazing.”
