WARREN, Mich., April 3, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As it gets ready to open its newest location on April 4, Motor City Carpet & Flooring is also celebrating its selection as one of the 2017 "Michigan 50 Companies to Watch," an awards program presented by Michigan Celebrates Small Business. The company will be honored at a special awards ceremony during the thirteenth annual Michigan Celebrates Small Business gala event, May 4, 2017 in Lansing, MI.
Motor City Carpet & Flooring is a family-owned business that installs carpet, hardwood, ceramic, sand and finish flooring for businesses and residential customers via its showroom and "Shop at Home" sales force along with its 25,000-square foot warehouse. The local company specializes in insured emergency work, and offers customers next day installation. It has permanent as well as mobile showrooms.
What began as a one-person operation started by Bruce Rostam's father, began to grow when Bruce joined the operation. After buying the company in 2012, Bruce expanded the product line, adding people and increasing revenue. He opened a retail store in Royal Oak and began outfitting customized vehicles with all the samples a salesperson would need. This eventually led to creating a fleet of 12 customized Ford Transit "showroom" vans that customers can use to select flooring at their home or business. The "Shop at Home" campaign was born and, with it, the opportunity to not only offer the service in Michigan, but to also launch the concept as a franchise, beginning with Dallas/Ft. Worth in March 2016.
On April 4, 2017 the company will open its third location, a 6,200-square foot showroom at 1445 N. Rochester Road, Rochester Hills, MI 48307. Learn more by visiting http://www.motorcitycarpet.com/ or calling (248) 710-2400.
"I believe that our success is based on our strong customer focus and efficient service. Because we rely on a public warehouse and sales team, we can pass the savings on to our customers who appreciate the value and convenience of selecting product right in their own driveways," said owner Bruce Rostam.
