This morning we received word that a gentleman in Michigan purchased a Floor Covering International franchise after viewing our site.
We receive word like this on a regular basis and it satisfies us greatly to know that FranchiseOpportunities.com was a part of this life changing, life improving event.
We’ll call this fellow Peter for the purposes of this discussion.
Peter is just like you. He visited our site and made inquiry using our forms to franchise companies.
Initially, Peter inquired about a different type of franchise than the one that he ended up buying. His investigation process led to conversations with various franchise organizations over time.
Ultimately, he chose Floor Covering International.
Allow me to illustrate for you the significant changes that will take place in the Michigan neighborhood where Peter lives and will be opening up his store.
First we’ll look at the changes initially in Peter’s household.
Peter will be going to school at the franchise headquarters. I’m going to assume that Peter doesn’t have any knowledge about flooring so at first, he’ll likely be instructed about the myriad products and features that are prevalent in the modern flooring business.
He’ll also be going to school for business operations such as hiring and managing installers, marketing for customers and selecting a retail location.
Once Peter gets his business ducks in a row, he’s got to get down to providing value to his customers in exchange for money.
In this case, Peter will be installing new flooring in various homes and businesses around his Michigan neighborhood.
Envision with me a Michigan household that selects Peter’s Floor Covering International to install new wood flooring in the main floor of their two story home. This home is owned by Bartholomew Higgins, a local dentist and his wife Julianne.
Imagine the pride that Julianne will have when it comes time for the next big family get-together, perhaps this coming Easter.
Bartholomew’s Mom will enter the house and marvel at how warm the house feels with the glistening wood planking. She’ll likely make eye contact with Julianne and communicate her sincere admiration of the selection, perhaps without saying a word.
Peter will enjoy the rewards of both the Higgins’ satisfaction as well as the profit from the sale to the Higgins.
Peter’s family will share in the conversion of those business profits into food on their table and perhaps a lift in the college savings account for Peter’s kids.
They will also share in the pride that their patriarch, Peter, made a decision one day to venture out into the world of entrepreneurship.
They will look back and marvel at the courage that Peter mustered in what was considered to be a down economy, disregarding the naysayers and taking control of his life and putting his future and his family’s future into his own hands.
This is a glimpse into what is going on Peter’s household and neighborhood as a result of Peter’s attitude, conviction and perseverance.
As you read this, you’re in the exact spot that Peter was in October of 2011.
You’re staring at the web site FranchiseOpportunities.com and in front of you perhaps is one single window, one single franchise concept, through which you can, if you squint, catch a glimpse of your own future.
