Business Makes a Difference in Community
The Spencer Chamber of Commerce has awarded R&R Flooring 2018 Small Business of the Year. A member of the Chamber since its opening in 2009, the business is honored to be a recipient.
“This award is a great accomplishment,” said Perry Hinrichsen, owner. “I have a great team around me and that is hard to find.”
R&R Flooring opened its doors in March 2009 and purchased the rest of the building space in 2010. Some of the challenges the business faced early on was staying open during the recession and, when Highway 13 closed for construction in 2011, having no drive-by traffic to bring in business.
Those struggles weren’t forever, and in 2015, R&R Flooring added a new warehouse to make more room for inventory. They operate a showroom with a wide variety of flooring, furniture and mattresses and service the state of Wisconsin, focusing on a one-hour radius around Spencer.
When selecting the recipient, the Chamber looks at businesses who make a difference in their communities.
“They use local suppliers as much as they can. Another factor is they’re a big part of our community as far as getting involved, if it’s with donations or helping anybody out that needs help in our community,” said Harley Meyer, Commerce President.
“R&R is all about local – we support youth programs, churches, kids group, girl scouts,” said Hinrichsen. A Spencer graduate, he decided to open up business there to contribute to community growth. “Small communities are very nice to be a part of because of the support you get from them.”
“Perry Hinrichsen is such a giving soul and definitely understands the concept of giving back to his local community,” said Kevin Krizan, owner of Farmers Insurance. “He is one of the most kind-hearted and giving people that I know and has been an asset to the Village of Spencer & Central Wisconsin as well as anyone that has the fortune of crossing paths with him. If you are looking for any furniture or flooring needs, you must make R&R Flooring a destination. Speak to Perry or any of his awesome team!”
