Meelad Dezfooli didn’t let anything stop him from his dream career. While still in grade school, Dezfooli started working at his father’s family business 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 take over the family business, was despondent.
“By the time I turned 18, everything was starting to fall apart, the market was in ruins, many accounts 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.” Read even more info on https://www.inc.com/synchrony/built-from-the-ground-floor-up.html.
A few tips and tricks regarding flooring materials
Vinyl Flooring – Pros: Vinyl flooring is especially good at fending off wear, dents, scratches, discoloration from sunlight, and stains. It’s also waterproof, so it’s a great alternative to tile in wet rooms such as baths and kitchens, where it provides a forgiving surface underfoot. This flooring type comes in two main varieties: traditional vinyl and luxury vinyl flooring (LVF). Both are made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), but LVF is thicker and more rigid, and it typically has more protective top layers. Regular vinyl comes in rolls and is glued in place; LVF typically comes in tiles or planks that click together for easy installation. Higher quality LVF can do a good job of mimicking the look of stone, tile, or wood.
Engineered Wood Flooring – Pros: Because engineered wood is made of thin layers of wood sandwiched with adhesives, it can withstand higher levels of humidity and is less likely to expand and contract than solid wood flooring. This flooring uses a thin veneer of real wood or bamboo over structural plywood, making it a cost-effective choice. Well-installed, high-quality engineered wood can be as durable as solid wood. Cons: Engineered wood performed about the same in our denting and wear tests as did solid wood and laminate, but fewer engineered wood products earned top marks for wear. Depending on the thickness of the top “wear layer,” some engineered wood flooring can be refinished once or twice, and some cannot be refinished. (According to the National Wood Flooring Association, wear layers of less than 2.5 mm usually can be recoated but not completely refinished.) If you anticipate that you may need to refinish your engineered wood flooring, check with the manufacturer or retailer before you buy.
