After graduating from high school, Ricky needed a job, so he began working for a flooring company. It was not what he thought he was going to do, but he quickly realized that he enjoyed it. Unlike other installers who cared more about lunch breaks or leaving the project early, he wanted to learn everything he could about installing tile. He asked questions like, “Why are you doing it this way?” and “What benefits are there from doing it that way?” He was always looking for opportunities to do things better and more efficiently. It got to the point where his mentor told him that one day he would be working for Ricky.
In 2003, Ricky co-founded In Line Flooring. Within just a few years, In Line Flooring’s unique method of flooring installation had revolutionized the flooring installation industry by drastically reducing installation time with almost zero items on the punch list.
