What Does Footprints Floors Manage?
We manage the following:
- We create and manage ten specific online construction portals, such as Home Advisor, Thumbtack, and Angie’s List, that have been tested by our corporate locations
- Google AdWords is turned on and managed by our Corporate Team
- ALL social media platforms, including Facebook, Snapchat, LinkedIn, and Instagram
- Location Specific Websites
- Lead Generation
Am I responsible For Finding New Business?
NO! Once customers are generated from the above platforms, they are directed to the corporate call center where we schedule ALL appointments for our Franchise Owners. It’s that easy.
What Is The Corporate Call Center?
We’ve perfected the art of lead generation, meaning Owners have customers the very first day they launch their business. Not only that, but they also have the added benefit of our corporate call center. Franchise Owners send the corporate team their availability schedule, and the call center will only schedule appointments during those times.
I Don't Have A Background In The Service Industry
That’s okay – we aren’t training you on how to restore floors. Instead, we’re teaching you on how to run and lead your own flooring franchise! Our business model utilizes subcontractors who will complete the jobs that have been assigned to you. Where you have zero experience, these guys have YEARS of it, and have done thousands of jobs. There’s nothing to worry about!
Subcontracts? Sounds Complicated.
We will train you on best practices for hiring and handling a subcontracted crew. Footprints Floors has a stellar reputation amongst customers and subcontractors. We are known for being easy to work with, paying well, and paying on time. Building a strong relationship with a subcontracted crew will prove to be beneficial for all parties involved.
What Does A Typical Week Look Like?
- On Monday and Tuesday, you’re taking estimates. Once a price is agreed upon with the customer, you collect 50 percent of the fee up front, which will cover all construction costs.
- On Wednesday and Thursday, the subcontractors will complete the jobs that were agreed upon.
- On Friday, with the jobs complete, it’s time to collect the remaining customer payments, and pay your subcontractor crews for another week of great work.
- Saturday and Sunday – Nothing. You get the weekend!
Are There Ongoing Fees For Franchise Owners?
Yes, Franchise Owners in the Footprints Floors system pay a monthly royalty equal to 6% of gross sales. The fee entitles you to continued use of the Footprints Floors name and trademarks, access to our operating systems, new product development, ongoing training, and support, and other benefits that come along with being a Franchise Owner in the Footprints Floors organization.
How Long Will It Take To Get My New Business Open?
We are proud of our highly systematized training and onboarding program. As a result, we can get our Franchise Owners up and running in just 4-6 weeks, with estimates coming in the first Monday after training ends and checks being collected at the end of that week. Having an entire, fully formed business up and running in such a short time is virtually unheard of in our industry, but we make it happen!
How Many Employees Will I Need To Run My Business?
To begin, Owners will only need 2-3 wood crews and 2-3 tile subcontractors ready to perform jobs. An Owner will be able to run the business without any office staff until a couple of years into the business when they will want to hire a Production Manager to assist with field management. Then, as the business grows, Owners will add more sub-contracted crews and Production Managers as necessary.
