On this week’s episode of the Atlanta Small Business Profile, small business expert Ted Jenkin speaks with Alan Mishkoff, Founder and Franchisor of Granite Garage Floors. Alan tells Ted that after 23 years in corporate America he felt that he had lost his passion for his work and decided to take a leap of faith in beginning his own business.
It was in 2009 that Alan had a granite floor installed in his own garage and he says it was a fantastic upgrade that always caught people’s attention. So, as he was transitioning out of his corporate job he realized that this was an industry that had a lot of opportunities. He thought that if more people knew that an option like this existed they would pay to install these premium industrial quality garage floor.
And as the success of his business goes to show, Alan was right. As he describes how his business has grown he tells about how he finally decided to turn it into a franchise, with currently 10 different franchises across the United States and more to come.
Granite Garage Floors works to help people who are looking to improve and upgrade their space with industrial quality garage flooring. Compared to the plain and problematic concrete flooring that is more common in garages, Granite Garage Floors allow you to choose the color and style of your garage floor and deliver an easy to clean and chemically resistant floor that is guaranteed not to peel from hot tires.
