Footprints Floors, a 160-plus-unit flooring franchise, prides itself on being an organization that believes in the greater good. The brand recently undertook a philanthropic effort called The First Fruits Fund, which is dedicated to partnering with faith-based organizations that offer holistic family care services like help for single moms, counseling/drug rehabilitation, orphan prevention, foster care and adoption assistance, and more.

Started by CEO Bryan Park in 2008, the company was established on a foundation of stewardship and integrity, which has made the brand stand out for its top-notch customer service. 

"Putting the customer first and creating an impeccable reputation in this industry was job number one," Park has said of Footprints Floors.

His same feelings of duty to others extend beyond having a helpful and reputable flooring company. Park, a devout Christian, has always had a strong calling for charitable work and now could combine those two passions. 

The franchise will utilize the Fund to connect with charity groups and offer monetary donations, volunteering help, flooring donations and more. Footprints Floors corporate has committed to donating 25% of annual profits to the Fund.

“I would encourage people to think of their businesses as opportunities to uplift their communities. I see my business as a way to live up to my values of supporting my neighbors and lending a hand to those in need,” Park said. “A business should be about more than just making money for its stakeholders; it should play a positive role in its community.”

The First Fruits Fund has already had the opportunity to offer assistance to Open Door Ministries, a Denver non-profit that fights poverty and homelessness; Hope’s Promise, a Christian child placement agency; and World Orphans, a group that partners with churches to support vulnerable children and combat poverty by training and empowering women in developing countries in entrepreneurial endeavors. 

Jon Jarvis, director of franchise onboarding and training at Footprints Floors, also serves as director of the First Fruits Fund. He leads an advisory panel that decides on which organizations to partner with.

“Here at Footprints Floors, we value community good above all else,” said Jarvis. “We are very excited and humbled to be a part of these philanthropic efforts with First Fruits Fund and to use it as a vehicle to live out the brand’s mission to help as many people as possible.”

The startup costs for a Footprints Floors franchise range from $78,505 to $113,030, which includes a franchise fee of $69,480 for a single territory. To learn more about franchising with Footprints Floors, visit


Upon his return to Littleton, Colorado, after serving in the U.S. Air Force, Bryan Park noticed that Denver’s flooring industry lacked a higher level of customer service and sophistication. So, in 2008, he founded Footprints Floors, which today specializes in installing hardwood floors, carpet, tile floors, backsplashes and laminates. With more than 100 territories, Footprints Floors offers franchisees a robust support system, including a call center, flexible hours for work-life balance and a low cost of entry with outstanding economics.
