Jason Maguire is one of the North East business community’s best kept secrets.

Over the last 25 years, he has been instrumental in the growth of his family’s popular North East business and brand, Frank’s the Flooring Store, as a director and shareholder of the County Durham-headquartered company that is best-known for its ‘I love carpets, me!’ slogan.

Building on the success of Frank’s, Jason has since developed other successful retail businesses, including Connection Retail and its umbrella brands, Flooring Superstore, Direct Wood Flooring and Grass Direct, which operate nationally with trade counters located throughout the UK, along with a largescale distribution operation based in Shildon, County Durham.

Strategic investments, which includes a continued commitment to the high street with the development of its store network across the North East, and the implementation of a strong digital strategy, have driven growth across Jason’s portfolio of businesses.

Given his many commitments, this is a rare opportunity to sit down over dinner with Jason and a group of like-minded entrepreneurs to discover how Frank’s have stayed at the top of their game and to learn what’s next for the flooring superstore giant.
