Awarded by the Minority and Women-owned Business Enterprise (MWBE), Custom Floors & More, Inc. is now officially a Certified Women’s Business Enterprise. The Belleville-based flooring company received this certification after abiding by the criteria outlined on the MWBE website.
The entire CFM team is thrilled to receive this certification, but no one quite understands it like Julie Nitz, CFM president and CEO. “When I was growing up, women scarcely owned businesses. If there was a family business, the husband was typically in the spotlight of the company while the wife stood by his side. Regardless of the wife’s level of involvement, it was taboo for her to openly operate the business.” Thankfully things have changed. “Owning a business has been a driving force in my life for 25 years, and having my husband of 29 years next to me has been incredible.”
Doug Nitz, CFM vice president, states, “Julie is the best person I know. Everyone who comes in contact with her is instantly surrounded with hospitality and wisdom. I thank God everyday I have had the opportunity to grow with her over the years.”
Julie and Doug started CFM in 1993. Over the years, they have employed many family members in order to keep up with their commitment to being family-owned and operated. Receiving the WBE certification was a pivotal moment for the company.
Brandon Nitz, son of Julie and Doug Nitz, comments, “My mom is the driving force for this company. Her compassion paired with strict expectations of customer service allows for the company to thrive.” Brandon is the operations manager for CFM. “The opportunity to work for both of my parents has been a blessing. The amount I have learned from them as lifelong mentors in my professional and personal life is irreplaceable.”
