Duplicating the business model is easy, but finding the right people to run the new businesses will be challenging.

COURTSPORTS has announced an aggressive expansion strategy to grow its hardwood sports refinishing division into several new regions over the next 2-3 years. "Our brand is very well known in the hardwood sports flooring industry and we pass on hundreds of projects each year, " explains Erik Sigurdson - Vice President of Operations. That equates to millions of dollars in lost revenues.

"We've established a very large customer base in Oregon and Washington which makes it difficult to service new customers outside our region," he says. Sigurdson has decided to train dealers and duplicate their business model in new cities across the United States.

Duplicating the business model is easy, but finding the right people to run the new businesses will be challenging. A residential flooring contractor who is already properly licensed in their state is the ideal candidate. It’s also an excellent opportunity for young entrepreneurs who are highly motivated, self-driven, and enjoy working with their hands. As a COURTSPORTS dealer you can work from home, schedule your hours, and be your own boss!

Sigurdson plans to train new dealers using his knowledge of 23 years in the hardwood sports floor industry. Training will take 3-6 months (more if needed) for the majority of dealers. Training will be extensive and will require new dealers to learn in the classroom and perform work on-site.

New dealers will be up and running in a short amount of time, compared to starting a business from scratch. You won’t have to worry about building a website, creating marketing material, or legal documents used for contracts. COURTSPORTS will handle all of this so you can spend more time working on floors.

It would take a new business owner years building a resume. When you become a COURTSPORTS dealer you become part of the team and you will have full access. Dealers can also take advantage of negotiated pricing that has been established with all their suppliers.

Hardwood sport flooring is the most popular surface used for sports and recreation. The COURTSPORTS business model focuses on maintaining existing hardwood sport floors (annual re-coats, full sandings, and repair). Nearly every school, college, university, and athletic facility budgets to have their hardwood sport floors re-coated annually. This process restores the gloss and traction. When a floor is not re-coated annually it typically becomes dull and slippery. The re-coating process can be completed in as little as one or two days, requires minimal equipment, and a crew of two can complete multiple gymnasiums in one day. It’s an excellent way to build your clientele and grow your business fast!

COURTSPORTS is also the manufacturer of numerous gym floor maintenance products including the PROMOP. The PROMOP is available in 11 different shapes and sizes and can be customized with your teams logo and colors. Today 26 of 30 NBA teams use the Promop!
