Created by 30-year industry veteran James Buckles, and serial restoration entrepreneur Ron Temelkoski, Mobile Direct Flooring is offering a complete, turn-key system and franchise opportunity providing an immediate start into the flooring business.

This system takes the flooring industry back to its roots of local businesses selling a curated collection of products to their neighbors, using the most up-to-date tools available to satisfy today’s consumers from a well-designed, compact mobile showroom.

"The Mobile Direct Flooring model was created, improved and field-tested over several years,” Temelkoski said.

In his years of creating restoration companies, Temelkoski noticed consistent challenges with his flooring installation vendors. After completing the sale of his latest restoration company, Temelkoski set out to forge a better model creating a franchise business opportunity that exceeds today’s flooring consumer needs. MDF’s franchise business offers lower overhead costs for the owner and the accessibility and ease of shopping as demanded by today’s consumers.

Buckles’ floor covering industry experience has been wide-ranging starting with Alan Greenberg as his second employee in the St. Louis office of Carpet Co-op of America. His career then ranged from consulting with flooring companies in all regions of the country in the retail, commercial, builder, and multi-family sectors, as well as working for some of the larger organizations, including RFMS, The Maxim Group and the WFCA. Buckles has taken these decades of experience distilling them into a simple turn-key model employing the latest technology and tools while avoiding the many retail pitfalls he has observed over the years.

The solution crafted by Temelkoski and Buckles strips away the myriad of complications that have become the hallmark of flooring operations and answers the consumer’s demand for a simple, customized shopping experience.

At TISE 2022 in Las Vegas, Buckles and Temelkoski will be meeting with exhibitors finalizing the platform and processes that make up the foundation of Mobile Direct Flooring. With proof of concept completed, they will now be cementing their partner relationships to expand the MDF franchise.

“We are looking forward to meeting with multiple vendors to scale our framework and enable the MDF turnkey solution to create businesses for hundreds of entrepreneurs," said Jim Buckles, CEO.
