Footprints Floors, the flooring franchise with over 160 territories across the U.S., has achieved impressive growth by changing the way flooring is done. Focusing on communication, customer service and great work, Footprints Floors owners become pillars in their own communities, bringing a level of professionalism to the industry that can be missing at times.

This year, two Footprints Floors franchisees were recognized by Hardwood Floors, the magazine of the National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA), in its 40 Under 40 ranking.

“These individuals are today’s movers and shakers already setting the pace for tomorrow,” wrote Libby Johnston, who detailed the ranking.

Kyle Battles, who owns Footprints Floors of Chicago, was recognized not only for his dependable work with hardwood flooring but also his involvement in the community. While continuing to grow his revenue and handle project management, sales and financial operations, Battles also sponsors a new local sports team every season and makes time for trips to local parks, pools and nature preserves with his family.

Eduardo Reyes, owner of Footprints Floors of North San Antonio, was recognized for his eye for detail and interest in ensuring clients receive the most value possible for their investment. When he first joined the system, Reyes was the youngest franchisee with Footprints Floors, and working alongside the team pushed him to develop valuable skills. After becoming known and respected in the community, Reyes had an opportunity to install new flooring throughout his community’s largest atmospheric theater, The Majestic Theatre.

Footprints Floors congratulates its franchisees and is proud to have ambitious owners like Battles and Reyes on board as the entire system works to better the industry.
