After experiencing layoffs, Davis residents Kim and Sean Tanner are opening a local flooring business out of their home.

This month, the couple launches a franchise of Floor Coverings International, serving Davis, West Sacramento, Winters, Woodland, Dixon, Vacaville and Fairfield. The company started in 1988 as the first mobile, shop-at-home floor-covering franchise, a news release said.

Floor Coverings International features more than 3,000 flooring options, including environmentally friendly alternatives like recyclable carpet, hardwood, cork, bamboo and ceramic tile.

Sean Tanner spent nine years in the tourism industry in Maui before moving to the mainland to work in banking and information technology. He was laid off in 2006, but found work as a service delivery manager with Lochard Corp. in 2008.

Kim Tanner sold mutual funds until taking six years off to raise their daughters. She re-entered the workforce in the marketing field, but was laid off in 2009.

TheyÕre excited about their new start.

ÒWith SeanÕs history of managing large teams and my ability to connect and foster relationships, Floor Coverings International was the perfect fit for our family,Ó Kim said. ÒWe were equally impressed by their green flooring options, which we know is important to residents.Ó
