Thank you for your interest in presenting Footprints Floors to your clients! As the Brand Manager, I work directly with consultants on a daily basis hosting education calls, answering questions, providing content and photos for ads, and whatever else you might need to be successful. Once you refer a client to Footprints Floors they will be working specifically with our Development Director through the education process. We look forward to working with you and ultimately closing deals together!
Lana Mazin | Director of Brand Development
The Footprints Floors Education Process
In an effort to be a great partner and communicate in real-time, any consultant who sends us a referral will receive automated emails as your client progresses through the above process as well as regular check-ins with our Development Director. We feel communication is key to working together and ultimately closing deals!
Once we receive your referral we enter your client’s information into our CRM and park them at this stage. Within 15 minutes of adding them to the CRM, they will receive an email and a text message asking them to schedule a call with the Footprints Floors Development Director. If they do not schedule a call at this point, we email and text them again 3 days later and then 8 days after that.
Once an initial call is scheduled, individuals are moved into this stage. If you would like to be part of the initial call, we are happy to host you- just let our Development Director know as he is scheduling!
After a successful initial call, our Development Director moves your client to FDD Review. They receive a link to our FDD and during this call, our Development Director walks them through the entire document and answers questions to make sure they feel comfortable.
BUSINESS MODEL REVIEW
If your client feels confident with everything that was reviewed in the FDD, they will then spend time with our Development Director as he explains the complete Footprints Floors business model. This step allows your clients to continue to learn more about what it looks like to operate a Footprints Floors business.
To begin, all candidates at this stage will be invited to join live group validation calls hosted every Tuesday and Thursday. If your client has additional questions after these calls or would like to continue validating, our Development Director will put them in touch with Dana Benedict, our Validation Coordinator, who can schedule additional one-on-one calls until your client is satisfied.
The last step in our process is to invite your client to Denver, Colorado for a full day of hands-on discovery. At Discovery Day, your client will meet the corporate team, tour the office, ride along to a job site, and learn everything they need to know to make a decision for themselves and their families. By the end of the day, they should have a comprehensive view of the brand and our corporate team will be able to decide if they are a good fit for the system.
Congratulations, it has been mutually decided this is a great fit for both parties! Thank you for referring us the perfect Footprints Floors partner. At this point, you should feel satisfied you just changed an entrepreneur’s life, and to thank you for your participation, we are happy to write you a check for your efforts!

“I think Footprints Floors is a great brand for people who are looking to get into something quickly with minimal employees and quick returns. I also really enjoyed working with Development Director, Brian Knuth and I think the fact that he is a Franchise Owner in the system works very well and validated the business for my client. We did run into some obstacles along the way but Brian was able to overcome them all by being patient and flexible!”
“It really came down to the end of the process. My client was looking at Footprints Floors and a different company in the home services category. What ultimately made him chose Footprints Floors was the support in lead generation and the call center. He felt the hands-on support from the corporate team in these aspects would be invaluable and would help him to be even more successful as he took the leap into business ownership!”
“I only have great things to say about working with Brian and the Raintree Team! Everyone is always very professional with me and my clients. Brian was extremely patient through this process which did almost fall apart a few times, but he acted as a sounding board for my client and was able to keep him interested and engaged. I look forward to working with Brian and the Raintree Team in the future!”
“I like what my client liked about the business. It’s a lean model, great Item 19, low investment, very scalable. I also enjoyed the extremely streamlined process Raintree has and working with Development Director, Brian Knuth. I will keep this one in my pocket moving forward, especially for individuals looking at multi-unit opportunities because I know this is a great option with a lot of value.”
“I did my due diligence in learning the brand before presenting. I spoke with Brian and watched the videos online so I felt I had a really good handle on the model. I saw the phenomenal success presented in the Item 19, the AUVs are fantastic and Owners are making money within six months of launching. I also really like the call center aspect of the concept and working with Brian was a great experience. All in all, I was very pleased with Footprints Floors and the education process my client went through!”
“The Development Director, Brian Knuth, communicates this very well when he engages with clients. He not only heads up the business development for Footprints Floors, but he also owns a multi-territory franchise with them. This means he truly understands the business and who will make good Franchise Owners.”
“To me, it is really all about the simplicity of the business. The lead generation assistance and corporate call center really allow Franchise Owners to get in front of customers without having to worry about the back office. I also love the industry and understand it is a growing segment that won’t go out of style or need anytime soon which means the economics are great! Also, as a former Marine Corps Officer I was drawn to the fact that the Founder, Bryan Park is a former Air Force Officer. I absolutely plan to continue presenting Footprints Floors to the right clients!”

Features to Highlight When Presenting Footprints Floors
LOW INVESTMENT & QUICK RETURNS
Footprints Floors Owners can start their business for under $69,000! Not only that but when they follow our proven and successful model, they can recoup their entire initial investment within 3-6 months.
System-wide in 2019, we saw Average Gross Sales of $747,401 with our highest performing territories hitting $1,191,087!
HOME BASED & MINIMAL EMPLOYEES
Footprints Floors Franchise Owners do not have any type of showroom, mobile or brick and mortar. This concept is home-based and Owners hire subcontractors to perform all jobs while overseeing the business from a management standpoint. This means there is no rent, no build-out, and no HR costs, making our overhead extremely low and margins very attractive.
LEAD GENERATION ASSISTANCE
Our corporate team is dedicated to ensuring the success of Franchise Owners by helping them obtain customers before the business even launches. We assist in lead generation in a few different ways. Franchise Owners inherit our, 11 year, 4.8-star rating on Yelp as well as 500+ reviews, Owners automatically receive an A+ ranking on BBB, we create and manage 10 specific online construction portals that have been tested by our corporate locations, Google AdWords is turned on and managed by the corporate team, we manage all social media platforms, and our preferred partners design websites specific to each location and complete all upfront and continuous SEO work.
Once the corporate team generates customers from the various platforms above, they are all directed through our call center which answers all incoming calls, sets customer appointments that meet the Franchise Owner’s schedule and directs inquiries to the appropriate Owner based on territory. Not only does this significantly reduce the workload for Franchise Owners but it also guarantees every customer’s first contact with Footprints Floors is professional and handled correctly.
