We would not be the company we are today without the tireless work ethic and vision of our late founder, Mike Blanton. Mike opened Dalton Carpet Outlet on July 5th, 1978, with just one other part-time employee. But that’s not to say that he was new to the flooring industry. Mike’s mother had worked as a bookkeeper for a hardwood flooring company and started her own in-home carpet business while Mike was still young, eventually opening her own carpet retail location. Mike worked for his mother’s company as a carpet installer during high school and college. Throughout the years, the company grew and prospered, joining the nationwide Carpet One cooperative and changing its name in 1988 to Dalton Carpet One. New storefronts were opened, one in Gainesville in 1979 and one in Eatonton in 2000. Throughout this time, Mike became heavily involved in the commercial side of the flooring enterprise and began to see a unique opportunity to shift direction toward a company that understood the unique rigors and demands of commercial flooring. This lead the company to create the DCO Commercial Floors division. Throughout his time working in the flooring industry, Mike was honored with numerous awards, including the Alan Greenberg Award in 2011. The Alan Greenberg Award is named for the co-founder and co-CEO of Carpet One’s parent company and is given each year to a member who most embodies the Carpet One Floor & Home company’s spirit and values. We can think of no one more deserving than our founder! Today, we continue to strive to meet Mike’s ideals for a company that’s built on trust and reputation as well as knowledge and experience.
