About John P. Fischer Tiles Inc.
A Brief History Lesson
Who was John P. Fischer?
In 1938 John P. Fischer recognized an opportunity. Tiles stores simply didn’t exist at that time, and products were sold on boards. Having been a tile setter for many years, John understood the importance of the products and the need to simplify the consumer buying process. So, in 1962, he opened John P. Fischer Tiles Inc., providing in-store product selections and design.
In 1964, John also became a distributor. He started selling US Romany and Florida Tile products, mostly to contractors, and later the few tile stores that followed his lead.
John married late in life, and as there weren’t any children working in the business, in 1978 he sold the business to a group of his employees. One of these owners was the father-in-law of our current owner, Gordon “Gordie” Jennings worked for his father-in-law in sales, buying, and merchandising before buying the company in 2012. Gordie immediately set about expanding the business with a larger store in a new location, a broader product selection, and enhancing the services offered.
