How did you get into your business, and what motivated you to start it?: Superior Floorcoverings & Kitchens President Greg Meyers was inspired by his grandfather, Laban Meyers, a farmer of the Old Order River Brethren. Meyers admired Laban’s work ethic. He learned from Laban early in life that reaping life’s bounty took only honesty and hard work. Meyers’ drive enabled him to climb the ranks to supervisor at Carolina Freight. As Meyers’ desire to own a business grew, a Lancaster man introduced Meyers to the Chem-Dry franchise. For Meyers, Chem-Dry became a catalyst into the flooring industry. He became the owner/operator of two Chem-Dry franchises — those in Chambersburg and Shippensburg, Pa. While cleaning carpets, Meyers was often asked to replace or repair flooring. His devotion to satisfying his customers and their growing needs led him to expand his skill set. He sold both Chem-Dry franchises and bought into the Floor Coverings International franchise. After a few years, Meyers realized his customers desired more, such as kitchen remodels, custom cabinets, bathroom remodels, walk-in showers and the like. To escape franchise limitations and meet those customer requests, he started Superior Floorcoverings & Kitchens.
