WHY INVEST IN THE FLOORING INDUSTRY (INSTEAD OF THE FICKLE RESTAURANT INDUSTRY)?

Apart from being nearly impossible to hire a full, qualified staff at a restaurant right now, there are several reasons to avoid the food industry and invest in the booming flooring industry.

Currently worth $380 billion, home improvement is expected to be a $454.6 billion industry by the end of 2023.

Approximately 80% of the nation’s 137 million homes are now at least 20 years old, and 40% are at least 50 years old. Older homes = more need for remodeling services!

Over the past year, home improvement spending increased at almost 2x the rate of the rest of the retail sector!

Restaurants will always need floors. Floors don’t really ever need restaurants. Why not own a business that sells something everybody needs, year-round, in virtually any economy?
