Floor Coverings International (FCI) announces three newly signed franchise agreements that will bring its services to the greater Chicagoland area. According to the company, Illinois proves to be a strong development state for the brand, with 13 franchisees, spanning 31 territories. Company leadership is aiming to add seven franchisees in suburban markets including Bartlett, Batavia, Buffalo Grove, Lemont, and Northbrook among others.
Behind the newly signed agreements are the following franchisees:

- Mike and Lori Macpherson, a husband-wife duo who bring collective experience in business finance, management, and marketing, are set to open mid-September and serve two territories across Barrington.
- Thomas Peterson is a Chicago local who is set to service the Near North Side Chicago neighborhood later this September.
