Meelad Dezfooli didn’t let anything stop him from his dream career. While still in grade school, Dezfooli began working at his father’s local flooring store.
Sadly, when the recession arrived in the late 2000s, his father had no alternative but to close down his stores and retire. Dezfooli, who had assumed he would one day run the family business, was despondent.
“By the time I turned 18, everything was starting to break apart, the market was in ruins, many firms defaulted, and my dream was taken from me,” he remembers.
Forced to switch gears, Dezfooli opened a Persian restaurant. Even though he found some success, he still desperately missed the flooring business. “I realized I loved the industry and the people around me,” he says. “I was nostalgic for the culture, the employees.”
Over the next five years, Dezfooli worked over 12 hours a day, seven days a week, doing anything to save the money needed to start his own flooring company. The endless, grueling hours paid off. By 2015, he was back in the flooring business, founding Best Buy Flooring in Henderson, Nevada. The business has flourished and expanded to multiple locations.
Now that he’s the owner of a highly successful business, Dezfooli shows his gratitude by helping local heroes. He offers generous discounts to veterans, police officers, and other service people.
“After what they’ve done for our country, it’s my honor to give them a better price,” he says. Not one to forget his roots, Dezfooli made a point of hiring several of his father’s former employees, some of whom came from troubled backgrounds.
“He had employees who may have had a small [police] record, but they were some of the best people,” he notes. “My father always taught me to give people a second chance. And I know as much as anyone the blessings of a second chance.” See extra info at https://www.inc.com/synchrony/built-from-the-ground-floor-up.html.
A few tips and tricks regarding flooring design
Linoleum Flooring – Pros: Made of linseed oil and wood products, linoleum is a natural, resilient material. Today’s products offer far more styles and colors than in years past. Linoleum tends to fend off discoloration from sunlight. Cons: Resistance to wear, scratches, and dents varies widely from product to product. Ceramic and Porcelain Tile Flooring – Pros: Ceramic and porcelain—a type of ceramic—are classic materials that resist wear, moisture, scratches, dents, and stains. Ceramic tile is most appropriate indoors; porcelain can be used indoors and out; it’s fired at higher temperatures than ceramic, making it more durable and weather-resistant. Cons: Installing tile can be challenging. The subfloor needs to be perfectly smooth and stable before tiles can be set in thinset and grouted. If you’re unfamiliar with laying tile, it might be best to hire a professional. While tile floors are durable, floor tiles can crack, and their hard surface means dropped glassware and dishes break more easily.
When choosing new flooring for your home, remember that each type—from hardwood to vinyl—has its place. Porcelain tile suits rooms where things get busy, wet, and messy, like entries, mudrooms, playrooms, and baths. Solid hardwood and engineered wood floors add warmth and “give” to hangout and lounging areas, such as bedrooms, living rooms, dining rooms, and dens. Laminate floors, which can mimic the look and properties of many materials, can work almost anywhere—as long as you like the look.
