Introducing Noel Brewick, one of our newest Franchise Owners with Footprints Floors! We are beyond ecstatic to see Noel apply his sales and finance expertise to introduce our flooring franchise to Atlanta, Georgia.
No stranger to the world of business, Noel has spent 29 years in corporate America building his career working in sales and finance. For the last 22 years, Noel worked at Serta Simmons Bedding Company in roles ranging from Sales Representative to National Account Director, and lived in six cities across the US with SSB. After nearly three decades in the workforce, Noel decided that he desired a career that offered more flexibility and power in his own work.
“In a nutshell I wanted to create equity in myself and not a corporation. The timing was perfect in terms of where I am at in my professional life,” Noel states. As an individual passionate about sports and a father of two daughters aged 2 and 5, Noel also wanted a career that would offer the flexibility to accommodate with his lifestyle. “I liked the idea that Footprint Floors is home-based, and I can carve out time for my family when needed,” Noel explains. “I was intrigued by the lifestyle aspect of Footprints Floors.”
Why Our Flooring Franchise?
Once coming across our flooring franchise, Noel began to see how our franchise business model and potential for him as a Franchise Owner fit perfectly with the career he was looking for. Considering himself a handy person, he was instantly drawn to the home improvement aspect of our company. Not only did the craftiness of our flooring franchise appeal to him, but Noel also saw great benefits from our company and its work in the service industry. Unlike a franchise in the restaurant or fitness industry, Noel explained how our franchise allows for “minimal employees, no leases, better hours, better chance of success, better ROI, lower cost of entry….I could go on and on!”
As he compiled more information, Noel saw how Footprints Floors truly stood apart from other home improvement franchises. When asked what he believes puts Footprints Floors above the rest, Noel emphasized “the possibility of a really great ROI, driven by the low overhead model. I have looked at a lot of other opportunities over the years and always passed them up due to either a complicated business model or being too big of a risk/reward scenario.” He believes our flooring franchise “carves out a niche that is missing in the flooring space”, given there is no product or showroom.
Experiencing Our Flooring Franchise In Action
Noel got to actually see how the business is run in person along with our corporate team when he experienced Discovery Day, helping him understand what a typical day as a Franchise Owner would look like. “It was great to see the business in action,” Noel expresses. “It was really good insight to see both the inspection of current jobs as well as the sell in of potential customers. It gave me a good feel of what a typical day might look like in my own business. The entire Footprints Floors team was open, welcoming and answered all questions.” Noel expressed how strong he felt about the entire Footprints Floors team, explaining how “everyone has been very gracious with their time and is always very easy to contact with questions.” He specifically highlighted his impression of meeting our Founder, Bryan Park, and how it helped him feel even more confident in joining our team as a Franchise Owner. “Bryan is a straight shooter and open book,” Noel says. “He is open and honest about what it takes to succeed.”
After meeting our team, experiencing a day in the life of our flooring franchise, and understanding our business model, Noel knew that joining Footprints Floors was the perfect opportunity for him. “Once I really understood what made them different than others in the flooring business I was sold— the combination of the customer service marketing model and removing waste in the back end of the business in terms of expense.”
Above all, Noel is excited to get his own Footprints Floors up and running. As a Franchise Owner, he is looking forward to the “freedom, flexibility, and creating equity in my own business.” He will also “enjoy seeing well done finished work and look forward to getting to know a lot of new people as customers.”
For any aspiring Franchise Owners looking to get started with their own business, Noel leaves this word of advice: Do your due diligence and talk to the existing franchisees. Hopefully you will come to the same conclusion that I did!”
