The Flood Team’s Journey to Greater Chicago
The opening of the new Chicagoland franchise marks a major milestone for The Flood Team and Tony Tumminia, the company’s second-generation owner.
“We’re thrilled that the Flood Team Franchise Program is putting down some roots in Chicago,” said Tony Tumminia, owner of The Flood Team. “Expanding the business into new markets and continuing our growth trajectory through franchising is part of the legacy of our family business, and we’re so proud to carry it on with a partner like David in Chicago.”
David Gonzalez is no stranger to The Flood Team family. Originally from the St. Louis area, David previously worked for The Flood Team STL. He learned a lot working alongside our experts including co-founder Tony Tumminia and Blake Birnstill, President of The Flood Team of Jefferson County (our flagship franchise location) and co-founder of the Flood Team Franchising Program. David left The Flood Team to broaden his knowledge of related industries. He lived in Alabama for some time, then moved north to Chicago. Now 15 years later, David is rejoining The Flood Team family, this time as President of The Flood Team Chicagoland.
“I’m really excited to bring this Flood Team franchise to Chicago,” said David. “Part of that comes from goal fulfillment. We always talked about doing this back in the day, and now here we are. Mostly, though, I’m excited for the opportunity. Chicago is a lot different from St. Louis in size and scale, with a denser population and a lot more buildings, especially commercial and industrial properties. The climate’s a bit different and the winters are harsher. There is a tremendous need for high-quality water damage and flood restoration services in the Greater Chicago area, and we’re ready to get to work.”
With a history dating back more than 25 years to the Great Flood of ‘93, The Flood Team has become a leading water damage and flood restoration company in St. Louis and surrounding areas. We have developed a high-tech digital management process with 24/7 immediate response and a winning customer experience that has earned us an impressive 4.9-star rating on Google Reviews. The Flood Team Franchise Program allows qualified entrepreneurs like Blake Birnstill and David Gonzalez to easily bring our unique and highly successful business model into new areas. We are quickly growing opportunities both regionally and nationally.
