The Flooring Design Story

Flooring Design was founded by Alan Jackson in 1996 in sunny Hawkes Bay. He established the business on a simple philosophy, to offer customers a great range of top-quality flooring products at exceptional prices – all backed by honest service that addresses our customers’ needs and desires.

In the year 2000, Tony Yeoman entered the business and developed a stalwart system which the two of them began Franchising in the lower North Island. Tony’s son, Jeremy, re-entered the business in 2018. Helping to further develop the system, Jeremy and the Flooring Design team opened several new Franchised stores over the coming years – at it’s peak opening 9 shops in a single year.

Nearly 30 years have passed since the first shop’s conception. Building on that foundational philosophy, Flooring Design has expanded across New Zealand. With 22 (and growing) Franchised shops owned and operated by local Kiwis, we ensure that all customers are treated with the same tenets on which our business is built:

Service & Excellence you can trust.

In 2023 Flooring Design was named a finalist for the FANZ Westpac Franchise System of the Year award.

Kiwis supporting Kiwis

Flooring Design firmly believes in more than just providing the best quality flooring solutions. We believe in actively contributing to our local communities.
Locals supporting locals – it’s what it’s all about.

Our franchisees feel compelled to give back to local businesses, charities, sports teams, and more.

Each year we collectively donate well over $100,000 to local New Zealand charities and organisations. Our local sponsorship outreach includes meeting a variety of needs, including:

– Primary school sports teams
– Wellington Free Ambulance
– Big Brothers & Big Sisters programmes
– The Great Kiwi Circus
