Business: Flooring King
From working at the local flea market to becoming “The Flooring King” of South Florida, Israeli immigrant Antonio Sustiel has worked tirelessly over the last 30 years to make his American dream a reality. Between his two businesses, Flooring Liquidators and The Flooring King, Antonio’s empire grossed $9 million sales in 2015 and is projected to make $14 million in 2016. Pretty good for a guy who moved to America with only $400 in his pocket. This single Miami playboy has turned lumber liquidation into luxury but hasn’t lost his drive. Antonio will put down the champagne glass and pick up a work call 24 hours a day, seven days a week for any of his customers.
