Who we are
We are craftsmen
Family-owned and operated for more than two decades, Allocco Wood Floors is Middle Tennessee’s choice for premium quality wood floors and customer satisfaction.
The son of a first-generation Italian-American, Jimmy Allocco began his wood floor career at the young age of 23 while working for a family member, who eventually encouraged him to start his own company.
By age 25, with a wife and baby at home, Jimmy founded Allocco Fine Wood Floors on the belief that if you take pride in your work and always treat the customer with respect success will surely follow. With only a red pickup truck and a deep passion for honing his new craft, he went to work.
“Every morning, I would wake up excited, go to the job site by myself and work hard all day. At the end of the day I loved the satisfaction and pride of looking at what I had accomplished. I still do.”
Jimmy’s work ethic was instilled in him at an early age by his father.
“I will never forget when my father took me out back once to watch the garbage truck collect the trash,” Jimmy remembers. “The men on the back of the truck were doing a sloppy job—trash that should have been going into the truck was spilling onto the ground. He said to me, ‘Son, I don’t care what profession you choose, so long as you take pride in your work.’”
He continued to explain to me about how the guy who takes enough care to do a good job getting the cans emptied and not spilling trash everywhere will eventually be promoted to drive the truck. And if he continues to take pride in how he drives the truck, he will become the manager, and so on. That was my lesson in work ethic.”
Since 1995, Allocco Wood Floors has embodied the approach of taking pride in one’s craft and providing superior customer service, growing from a one-man shop to a full-time team of 23 professionals who share the founder’s passion for superior quality craftsmanship and customer satisfaction.
