Corporately we are more than just a buying group. We are more than just a marketing group. We are more than just a networking group. At Floors & More we are a family-owned company that has history in retail. Third generation, our family was a dealer first. We have taken the lessons we learned from running the family business in to guide our corporate principles and the services we provide today. Our main goal is simple: help your business grow any way and every way that we can.
Our company mantra is to always be helping. We work for our franchisees and members, not the other way around. We consider all of the people in our group, to be our people. They are our family. We celebrate their successes, and fight against their challenges, just like we do our own business. The businesses in our group, we consider our family business.
Founded in 2016, Floors & More is the embodiment of our founder’s vision. That man, CEO Vinnie Virga, has over 30 years of experience working at an executive level in the flooring industry. From small family-owned business, to large privately held companies, to publicly held corporations, to national cooperatives, and national franchise businesses. Having visited over 1000 different flooring retailers throughout his career, Vinnie found a need in our industry.
Floors & More was created to help independent retailers do more than survive: Floors & More wanted to help its businesses thrive. Acquiring the Big Bob’s Flooring Outlet franchise in and the Floor to Ceiling group that same year it was founded, Floors & More set out to service its members. Marketing, merchandising, networking, and consulting became the cornerstones upon which our groups were supported. Floors & More’s dedicated corporate team focuses on the important objectives that drive traffic so that its members can focus on closing the customers in front of them.
Committed to growth, our business continues to evolve and expand. 2020, was our largest growth in membership yet. A network of now over 75 aligned independent retail stores, the family has never been bigger. Our merchandising program has evolved and developed to feature even more opportunities than before: flooring, kitchen & bath, and décor. Our marketing has responded to shifts digitally to become stronger and more focused online. Our members are reporting some of their best fiscal earnings ever.
