David Cinnater is Bringing Footprints Floors to PA!
It’s always a thrill when our team here at Footprints Floors gets to welcome yet another friendly face to our growing home improvement franchise.
This month, we are excited to introduce you to David Cinnater, who has decided to bring Footprints Floors to Shawnee On Delaware, Pennsylvania—a lovely area situated just south of the foothills of the beautiful Pocono Mountains.
Before opening a Footprints Floors franchise, David was a stay-at-home dad who owned and operated a 200-seat performing arts venue in Blairstown, New Jersey. The historic theatre brought many world-class concerts and shows to town, giving audiences wonderful memories in an inviting and intimate space. David also worked in the automotive industry for some time, serving in sales positions.
Knowing that he wanted more flexibility in his schedule and to become his own boss, David began seeking information about franchising opportunities this past spring. “My franchise consultant could not speak highly enough of the Footprints Floors franchise and the model in general,” David says. “Jeff didn’t push it (I had to make my own decision), but you could tell he just had absolute confidence in the business model. He anticipated it would be just a matter of time before the country sold out its franchise territories. I think he’ll be right.”
As David learned more and more about Footprints Floors, he began to feel confident that this was the right franchise for him. When you invest in a Footprints Floors franchise, you join a family that supports you in every way possible. To David, that fact was so encouraging. “There are endless resources available for all Franchise Owners to lean on, plus the whole staff at Footprints Floors is available at all times,” David says. “They want to see us succeed just as much as we want to succeed.”
To gain a better understanding of our business model and the way Footprints Floors franchises around the nation operate, David was invited to attend Discovery Day. During that day, David was introduced to Footprints Floors Founder Bryan Park. “He immediately had that laidback but confident vibe,” David says. “Bryan’s knowledge of owning and operating a very successful service-based flooring business and it’s all about the customers is second to none. There isn’t anything he didn’t go through himself, and he streamlines that success and has you follow the footprints—no pun intended!”
Discovery Day helped David recognize that opening a Footprints Floors franchise was the best decision he could make for himself and his family. “Discovery Day was quite a jam-packed day,” he says. “Breakfast with the executive staff . . . working job site visits for an experience of what to expect . . . and then the same with sales appointment visits. It was very informative and gave me the belief in Footprints Floors to move forward.”
If any aspect of the franchise model intimidated David, it involved having to gain the knowledge necessary to operate a successful flooring franchise and determine how he’d find skilled local contractors to perform the installations. All concerns and questions were thoroughly addressed when he spoke to our Franchise Development Director and attended a two-week training session. “The session covered all questions and just about everything flooring-related,” David says. “Two weeks in Denver training with Footprints Floors gets you up and running. The goal is to give Franchise Owners a head start needed to get the business moving in the right direction.”
The flexibility of owning a Footprints Floors franchise greatly influenced David’s decision to take the leap of faith. “Footprints Floors is the right fit because it offers some flexibility in scheduling and also leans on my sales experience,” David says. “I have two sons, Cooper and Levi, and Footprints Floors allows me to work around their busy schedules, especially when the school year begins.”
A devoted father, David wants to set an excellent example for Cooper, 12, and Levi, 11. As a Footprints Floors Franchise Owner, he can show his sons what it means to work in a service-oriented business where people—not profits—come first. “Seeing customers’ satisfaction in the end product is very important to me,” David says.
By operating with honesty and integrity, Footprints Floors ensures that our contractors complete quality work for our customers at an affordable price. We’re proud to offer highly competitive pricing thanks to our limited overhead costs. The proven, well-established franchise business model that Bryan Park brought to fruition requires customers to source their flooring. With no showrooms to manage, no rent to pay, and no human resource costs to incur, Footprints Floors Franchise Owners like David can focus on growing their businesses.
Our incredible management team offers all Franchise Owners a reliable, knowledgeable, and built-in support system. This includes access to our corporate call center, where our dedicated and knowledgeable employees connect with customers to schedule appointments, answer questions, discuss estimates, and more.
David describes the Footprints Floors franchise business model as “highly profitable and easily scalable.” He emphasizes that it’s reassuring that this business offers unlimited growth potential.
We’re grateful that Footprints Floors now exists in Monroe County, Pennsylvania, and are honored to know that he chose us out of all the franchises that David’s franchise consultant discussed with him. If you live near Shawnee in Delaware, call David if you need your floors installed, restored, or refinished.
“Flooring is the main attraction to any room in the home,” David says. “I intend to build a strong, positive, and neighborly presence in the local flooring business.”
And so his journey begins. As our team here at Footprints Floors likes to say, “Stick to the lit road.” We’re confident that David will do just that, and we wish him all the best with his franchise in Shawnee, Delaware.
