Meet our Newest Floor Installation Franchise Owner, Kris Bohman!

Meet our Newest Floor Installation Franchise Owner, Kris Bohman!

Floor Installation Franchise

Join us in welcoming our newest Franchise Owner Kris Bohman to the Footprints Floors family! Kris is planning on opening his floor installation franchise in his new home of Austin, Texas! His location will be our second location in the state of Texas, after Mckinney, and we are ecstatic to have Kris on board with us!

Growing up in Anchorage, Alaska, Kris has always had the home improvement industry in his blood. His first experience was right out of high school when he started doing commercial drywall finishing in Anchorage. After a seven-year stint, Kris decided it was time for a change. Kris’s entrepreneurial spirit led him to save up his money for a year and then purchase a house, which he planned on fixing up and “flipping.” During this process, he hired a real estate agent whom he planned to sell the house. However, after seeing that the agent wasn’t doing a great job, Kris decided to get a real estate license himself. Thus commenced his new career as a real estate agent while “flipping” houses on the side. After some time, though, Kris realized that this wasn’t the best career choice for him. “I made it work, but I knew that it wasn’t something that fit with my personality,” remarks Kris. Being a real estate agent gave Kris more downtime than he wanted and wasn’t challenging enough for him. He knew he needed to find a career that fit with who he was. 

Left at a crossroads of sorts, Kris was unsure of his next move. He knew that he wanted to remain within the home improvement industry, but wasn’t sure where he should work. After looking at a few franchises in the area, he felt a bit discouraged. “I was looking into a plumbing franchise and a couple of gym-type franchises. I didn’t want brick and mortar, especially in Anchorage, where there aren’t many people,” describes Kris. One day, however, Kris struck gold. While doing some research on his computer, he came across Footprints Floors and was instantly hooked. “This just makes sense,” says Kris. “I studied as much as I could, looked through the Financial Disclosure Document and gross numbers, and I thought, ‘These are fantastic.'” He knew this was what he wanted to do, but realized that Anchorage wasn’t the best place for the Footprints Floors business model. There wasn’t a large market in the city, and the population was quite small compared to the rest of the country. Kris’s wife, Katya, had been talking about moving to Austin, Texas, for years, so he decided to look into starting a flooring business with Footprints there. After visiting the city with our team and going to a Footprints Floors Discovery Day, Kris realized that opening a floor installation franchise with Footprints was a no-brainer! He officially signed on several days later.

One of the most valuable things for Kris during his decision-making process was attending a Footprints Floors Discovery Day. “I liked being able to meet with the Founders face-to-face and having a conversation with them,” describes Kris. “It was great to talk with Bryan Park about where he came from, how Footprints started, and how it developed. He’s a normal guy. He just started a business and wanted the process to be as straightforward as possible”. Kris also valued being able to go out on a job with the Footprints crew and see how the flooring process functioned first hand. He had done some flooring before but was far from being an expert. Being able actually to work with a team on the job helped him to feel confident in his decision. Most offer franchises couldn’t offer him this.

Fast forward several months, and Kris is making the final touches on opening his floor installation franchise with Footprints Floors. Kris and his family are loving their new home near Austin. He especially enjoys getting to spend more time with his daughter, Isabell, and wife, Katya. Outside of work, you can find Kris working out at the gym or watching sports. He sees himself having a long future with Footprints Floors and would like to purchase several more territories. In his own words, “I knew I needed to act fast. They’re quickly going to sell out everywhere!”. We would have to agree!

Matt Therriault Opens Atlanta Floor Installation Franchise

Matt Therriault Opens Atlanta Floor Installation Franchise

floor installation franchise

Atlanta, Georgia is about to get a brand-new floor installation franchise, thanks to Matt Therriault! Matt, who has an extensive background in the home improvement industry, is set to begin his new career as a Footprints Floors Franchise Owner in early 2020. Matt brings a hearty amount of experience to his new role, both as a business owner and as someone who has spent many years providing construction and remodeling services to the members of his community. 

My remodeling company is billed out as a handyman service,” explains Matt about his independently-owned business, which he plans to continue operating on a limited basis. “It’s home repairs and renovations. For the past two and a half years, all I’ve done is big, large projects- bathrooms, kitchens, stuff like that.” Now that he is a Franchise Owner with Footprints Floors, Matt intends to scale back to smaller handyman jobs, enlisting the help of a trusted crew member to perform these small tasks so he can concentrate on growing his flooring business. “I have someone very reliable that can handle the day-to-day operations,” he explains.

Thanks to the flexible scheduling associated with owning a Footprints Floors franchise, Matt can own and operate two businesses at once- This not only gives him several streams of revenue but also can help him cross-promote his available services: something he says is already starting to happen. “I already have two people who want to book flooring appointments,” he notes. “One wants a February or March appointment for hardwood floors and one wants an appointment at the end of May or the beginning of June for LVP flooring for the entire house. These are clients I’ve done a lot of work for in the past. I’m excited to know that it’s already happening, that there are people who know that I’ve purchased this franchise, and I’m already getting people asking about it.” 

Believe it or not, getting started in the flooring business was in Matt’s game plan as his next career move even prior to discovering the Footprints Floors opportunity. “Before I purchased the franchise, I actually wanted to start my own flooring company!” he recalls. Matt’s desire to open a flooring business led him to research other similar companies, which in turn led him to a number of franchise opportunities, including Footprints Floors. “When I ran across Footprints Floors, it was an instant match as far as what I was looking to do,” he remembers. “Their business model was what I was looking to build on my own, and they already have it! They’ve already invented the wheel and perfected the wheel. I’m not looking to reinvent the wheel- I was like, ‘Here I am! Sign me up!’”

Amazed at finding a floor installation franchise opportunity in such perfect alignment with his own vision of what a flooring business should be, Matt immediately took the first steps in his Franchise Education Process. 

Though he was already quite certain that Footprints Floors was the right floor installation franchise opportunity for him, Matt’s Discovery Day in Denver sealed the deal, as far as he was concerned. “Things fell into place when I went to Denver,” Matt recalls. “I had a three-page list of questions and I never had to ask a single one! In the normal course of Discovery Day, the questions answered themselves.”

Matt especially enjoyed meeting and getting to know Founder Bryan Park. “Bryan is a very personable person, and I felt that we meshed very well,” he says, adding, “I left there feeling as though everything was a really good fit.”

As Matt gears up to begin his training process, he can tell that the Footprints Floors opportunity is catching on like wildfire in Georgia, and is amazed by how quickly territories in the state are selling. “Footprints Floors was nowhere near Georgia when I started my process,” he recalls. “Then Noel Brewick, who is in Sandy Springs and Alpharetta, was in Denver signing his franchise agreement paperwork when I was there doing my Discovery Day!” In addition to Matt’s new Metro Atlanta franchise and Noel’s Sandy Springs/Alpharetta/North Atlanta territory, Michael Brown also recently purchased a Footprints Floors which will be based in Macon and serve all of Middle Georgia. “These franchises are selling out fast!” he notes.

Matt’s new chapter as a Franchise Owner with Footprints Floors is an exciting one in which he looks forward to having even more flexibility in his schedule to share special moments with his family. Married to his wife Heather for nearly 17 years, the couple has two daughters- 13-year-old Madeline and 9-year-old Danielle. Though his self-employment has always afforded him a certain level of schedule flexibility, Matt can already see how the Footprints Floors opportunity will allow that to increase. “My daughter’s got a play next week for Christmas- I’ll be able to stop what I’m doing and go over there and be there for her,” he says, adding, “This will actually give me more time. With the remodeling company, I’m doing all the work, I’m elbow-deep in work and can’t always stop what I’m doing. When I have crews doing the flooring installation work, I will be able to take more time and know they’re doing a great job.”

Matt’s story is an inspiration for independent business owners who are already operating companies within the home improvement industry. If you, like Matt, are looking for a separate stream of revenue that can complement your existing business, it may be time to check out the Footprints Floors opportunity. We’re currently awarding franchises in select U.S. territories. Visit our franchise website to learn more.

Fabio Simoes is Starting a Flooring Business!

Fabio Simoes is Starting a Flooring Business

We’re proud to announce that Fabio Simoes, one of our newest Franchise Owners, will be starting a flooring business with Footprints Floors this coming year! Fabio is all set to open his Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX flooring franchise and begin his new career path with Footprints Floors, and we couldn’t be happier to welcome him to the family!

Born in Brazil, in the Amazon River port city of Belém, Fabio relocated to the United States with his family in 1984, and spent the rest of his childhood and teen years in Newark, New Jersey. It was here where Fabio started his career in the mortgage and real estate industry. “I’ve been in real estate off and on since 2001,” Fabio explains. “I started my career in the mortgage industry. After the stock market crash in 2008, I went into corporate America for a while, and then went back to real estate in 2014.” 

After leaving Newark to live in Ft. Lauderdale for a few years, Fabio and his wife Tais moved to the Dallas/Ft. Worth area in 2013, shortly after having their first child. Now the proud father of two kids- daughter Valentina, 9, and son Isaac, 6- Fabio enjoys spending time with his family, and is extremely active in his church. 

In addition to understanding the ins and outs of mortgage and real estate, Fabio also spent time collecting experience on the other side of the coin: home construction. He began purchasing homes, performing necessary renovations, and selling them at a profit, otherwise known as “fix-and-flip.”

Thanks to his extensive background in the mortgage and real estate industry, as well as experience with fix-and-flip home sales, Fabio sees the Footprints Floors opportunity as the next logical step in an industry where he has spent the better part of two decades. Interestingly enough, however, Footprints Floors wasn’t the first franchise he looked into. “I clicked on an online ad for another franchise that has nothing to do with flooring,” he says. “The person that I was talking to about that franchise, after hearing about my background with contracting and fix-and-flips told me about Footprints Floors. This is more in line with what I like to do and what I know.”

Though it was Fabio’s first time exploring a franchise opportunity, Footprints Floors is hardly his first time owning a business. “I think I’ve been an entrepreneur ever since I can remember,” he says. “I don’t do well with corporate America. I ‘ve always been my own boss, done my own thing, and it’s worked out well.” 

With years of entrepreneurial experience under his belt and a good amount of business acumen, Fabio recognized right away that Footprints Floors was no ordinary flooring franchise. He was able to see how starting a flooring business with Footprints Floors was an excellent business decision, as well as an exciting new path in an industry he knows and understands. “All in all, it’s a great model,” Fabio says of the Footprints Floors opportunity. “You are kind of a broker- the middle man in a sense. You’re not really carrying any inventory but at the same time you’re selling. I really liked the whole model of not having to do the contracting myself and not having to carry inventory.”

As someone who understands that business is about more than just the bottom line, Fabio also appreciated the tight-knit, supportive atmosphere that he experienced during his Discovery Day. “They’re laid-back, very down to earth,” he says about Founder Bryan Park and the rest of the Footprints Floors corporate support team. “They take the business seriously but know how to enjoy life.” 

Fabio also felt that the core values of the Footprints Floors franchise aligned perfectly with his own, a key factor in his decision-making process. As someone who is very active in his church, Fabio enjoyed the tenets of faith and family upon which Footprints Floors was built. “Footprints is founded on faith- Bryan’s a believer, as I am, and everything just fell into place,” he says. “I’ve always believed that what will make you successful is integrity, honesty, with yourself and with your clients with the company, and above everything, to always keep God first in your business and in your life.” 

We’re excited to have Fabio as part of our flooring franchise family, and we look forward to expanding the Footprints Floors franchise to Dallas/Ft. Worth. We are currently awarding territories to qualifying Franchise Owners in other select U.S. cities.
