Floor Coverings International’s Record-Breaking Q1 Lays Foundation for Unparalleled Growth

No. 1 Flooring Franchise Wraps First Quarter with Expansion Across 40 Territories

ATLANTA -- Floor Coverings International® (FCI), the No. 1 flooring franchise in North America, known for its locally owned Mobile Flooring Showrooms® and knowledgeable teams of trusted professionals, signed 19 new franchisees into its system in Q1 of 2024. Making for a record-breaking quarter, these numbers reflect a 90% growth increase compared to Q1 of 2023 and puts the brand on the fast track to achieving its goal of awarding 100 new franchisees this year.

Floor Coverings International's 19 newest franchisees span 40 territories across North America. They will join the brand's current roster of more than 250 franchises and continue in FCI's legacy of responsible franchising. Over the last 35 years, FCI has cultivated an ethos of effective franchise management. The credibility the brand has built with franchise owners and customers alike has paved the way for its franchise development strategies to accelerate year-over-year.

"Floor Coverings International's track record over the last 30 years speaks for itself, but this recent wave of interested and qualified candidates is a testament to the quality system, brand, and team we've built," said Albert Hermans, Vice President of Franchise Development at Floor Coverings International. "Providing unparalleled service to our customers and being accountable to our franchisees is second nature to us. The growth we are witnessing today is a result of decades of doing business right and ensuring we serve each franchisee with the support, care, and resources they deserve."

The franchise brand's rapid growth in the last quarter is the culmination of three years of planning driven by the brand's marketing, operations, and franchise development teams. The franchise's novel use of 32 regional marketing co-ops has helped boost brand awareness across North America. Floor Coverings International has incorporated new technologies to facilitate better customer service, and its continuously evolving training programs have been strengthening the franchise at every level.

"The number of new franchises we've welcomed into our community in Q1 alone is an exciting indication of what's to come," said Tom Wood, President & CEO of Floor Coverings International. "We've been around long enough to know when goals are unrealistic, and I can confidently say that our mission to bring on 100 new franchisees by year end is ambitious, but absolutely achievable. When you can be this confident in your systems and your people, you're obligated to reach for incredible goals."

Floor Coverings International's focus on strengthening its foundation has expedited the onboarding of new franchisees, with 92% of them becoming operational within six months of signing on. The initial training period for new franchisees entails two years of guided support and in-person visits to solidify new owners' foundation in the flooring industry, even after doors open.
