A fast-growing Carrollton flooring company that looked at headquarters options has decided to stay in its current location that will be remodeled.
Twenty-year-old Rasa Floors provides carpet and floor coverings to the apartment industry. The company has operations in Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Arkansas.
The company has had its home base at 2833 Eisenhower St. in Carrollton for almost a decade.
Recently Rasa Floors decided to look at alternative sites, said broker John Amend with the Amend Group who represented the company. But after looking at other options they are staying put.
Building owner Duke Realty “wanted badly to keep Rasa, and ended up renewing their lease over a year and a half early,” Amend said. “That’s unprecedented in an escalating market like we are in.”
Parts of the company’s 40,000-square-foot office and warehouse space will be upgraded as part of the deal.
Rasa Floors also has outlets in six other Texas cities plus locations in Oklahoma City and Tulsa.
“We have nine locations and we are doing some due diligence to open our 10th,” said CEO Michael Rasa. “We serve roughly 2000 apartment communities and 700 management companies.”
