About Footprints Floors
More from Footprints Floors
How can you generate a net PROFIT of $217,394* with a flooring franchise — without installing a single piece of flooring yourself?

Why Choose Us?
Why there’s never been a better time to own a flooring franchise
The home improvement industry, which Footprints Floors operates in, was hot before 2020, and continues to boom in 2021!
Demand for new home construction is far exceeding the supply (especially with a huge increase in building materials), so many people are buying older homes in need of renovation!
Prior to 2020, the home improvement industry in the U.S. was already a $407 billion industry. This number is expected to jump to $510 billion by 2024!1
Throughout 2020, people put even more importance on protecting their home investment: 76% of people completed at least one home improvement project.1
As the nation’s homes age, renovations look to be even more important in the years to come. About 80% of the country’s homes are over 20 years old.2 40% are at least 50 years old.2
Even though there’s incredible opportunity industry-wide, business ownership in any industry comes with its challenges.
