Floor Coverings International

Description

Combine the explosive market potential of the $65 billion floor covering industry with the huge consumer convenience of shop-at-home, and you have the ingredients for a dynamic and successful franchise - Floor Coverings International. FCI is well established in the floor covering industry (since 1988) and understands the unique advantages of the shop-at-home concept. FCI can provide the training, support and systems to launch a successful business.

FCI focuses on the residential replacement market, but has a full line of commercial products and window treatments for future vertical growth. Flooring is the top home improvement purchase made by homeowners. The FCI average ticket sale is over $5,000 compared to a $1,600 average by competitors in our market.

We award exclusive territories that are designed to be large enough for owners to build large successful businesses. Our goal is to have a $2 million business in three years.
