Frequently asked questions
What are the differences between the Floors & More brands?
Floor to Ceiling is designed for current independent retailers who want to retain their independence and identify but enjoy the benefits of a national program. Many Floor to Ceiling stores also do cabinetry and/or window treatments, in addition to flooring. You choose what you use.
Big Bob’s Flooring Outlet is a franchise model that has evolved over 35 years. Use our tested and proven model. Use our marketing. Use our guide. A value play, this stock program targets customers looking for a good buy they can take with them today. This is a great second store for someone who already owns a design showroom. Your store. Our program.
ProCenter Kitchens & Floors is designed for going after the trade professional. This program is developed to build recurring relationships with builders, property managers, contractors, interior designers and other professionals in the industry. Small investment. Consistent business.
What is the investment to join Floors & More?
The initial investment depends entirely on which group you join. Floor to Ceiling is a lower investment compared to similar buying groups, with more opportunities and less restrictions. Big Bob’s Flooring Outlet is a great value compared to other franchises, from its low startup to its extensive resources. ProCenter Kitchens & Floors is also a relatively inexpensive franchise for someone to get started with, requiring less space than other flooring retail models.
Will my prices increase?
Your prices will NOT increase by joining a group. We have an agreement with all of our core vendors nationally: our members never pay more after joining. That means whether it is something you have negotiated locally, or something we have focused on nationally, you always get to use the better price between us.
What kind of rebates can I expect?
Floors & More groups pay the highest rebates of any group. With multiple industries, based on volume and not manufacturer, you can earn your rebates in many product categories. Flooring, Kitchen & Bath and Décor are all included in our program.
Does the core product offering consist of popular brands?
You can find many of our core vendors at the bottom of the home page. You will recognize most as already being in your showroom. In flooring we have well known manufacturer’s like Mohawk. Engineered Floors, Dixie Home and Mannington. In Kitchen and Bath we have some of the leading cabinet manufacturers with Mastebrand Cabinets, Wolfe Home Products, and US Cabinet Depot all apart of our group. For décor, we feature Graber, Lafayette and Hunter Doulgas among our vendors. Aligned vendors also include Synchrony, RFMS, 2020 and the Stock Market.
Would I be required to change my store name?
Floors & More does NOT require its members to change their name to join our group. Your brand means something. Our program exists to supplement and strengthen the business you have built. Not replace it.
What kind of market protection will I receive?
All Floors & More members receive a territory upon joining one of our groups. Within that territory you will not find another member of the same group, nor will we ever add a new member in your area. For our franchises, we also have an expansion territory protected for you to grow should you want to have more than a single store.
Are there any other requirements to becoming a member?
Floors & More is looking for good businesses that want to do even better. We want our program to benefit you. Therefore we ask all prospective members to have a phone conversation with our team, to learn more about your current business and your reasons for wanting to join. We want to make sure you get the most out of our program and we are a great fit for your business. We want our program to work well for your business.
