A full-service floor covering business serving San Antonio and South Texas is Atlas Floors Carpet One. We sell a wide variety of high quality carpet, hardwood, laminate, vinyl, ceramic & porcelain tile flooring items. Our high-quality floor coverings are sponsored by our skilled installation services, so you can be assured for a long time that your flooring will work. Since 1948, Atlas Floors Carpet One has been owned and run by families. Since then, our flooring shop has grown to two flooring showrooms and a central office site, becoming the premier flooring retailer in San Antonio.
A veteran of World War II, William E. Mahone had always dreamed of owning a company. Equipped with a carpentry background and a $1600 loan after returning from the war in 1948, Mr. Mahone was able to make the dream a reality by opening a flooring store for himself: Atlas Floors. Behind the name Atlas Floors, the storey is two-fold: first, Mr. Mahone wanted his company to have a name that started with the letter "A" so that his company would be identified in the phonebook before its rivals. Second, Mr. Mahone was obsessed with Greek mythology when he grew up, particularly the Greek Titan Atlas, which he saw as a sign of strength and stamina.
Mr. Mahone secured a second loan as the company expanded, and relocated Atlas Floors to a bigger, more prominent location off Hildebrand Avenue. This place had an upfront flooring showroom and living quarters in the back, where the second generation of ownership of Atlas Floors literally grew up in the business. William Mahone, his wife Laura, son Bill Mahone Jr. and two daughters, Jessica and Annie, worked tirelessly here to grow the family company into the first option for floor covering services in San Antonio.
In 1972, William Mahone Sr. suffered a major heart attack, causing him to die prematurely. His son, Bill Mahone Jr., wanted to carry the legacy of his father, so he left college to help his mother run the company. In the following years, there were many ups and downs, but in 1984, by constructing a warehouse and an add-on to their existing flooring showroom, the family was able to double the size of their operation.
Over the years, as San Antonio continued to expand, so did Atlas Floors. Jessica, Bill 's sister, started working full-time again in the business, and in 2000, the family was finally able to expand the business with a second flooring showroom in North San Antonio off Highway 281 & Donella Rd. A year later, Atlas Floors became part of the biggest cooperative, Carpet One, in the flooring industry. The Mahone family was able to retain their local presence and independence in this new partnership, but it gave the company the purchasing power and wealth of over 1,000 stores worldwide.
The business was known as Atlas Floors Carpet One from here onwards. Billy Mahone III, son of Bill Mahone Jr, joined the team in 2007, making the company three successful generations working in the family business. The new showroom and Carpet One partnership were great achievements for the company , leading in 2008 to the expansion to a third showroom in Northwest San Antonio off Highway 1604 & Braun Rd. In 2013, the family sold the original Hildebrand location in what was a bittersweet move, and relocated the warehouse and accounting department of the company to a more centralized location off Broadway & 410.
Today, with a family member at each venue, Atlas Floors Carpet One continues under the stewardship of the Mahones: Bill Mahone Jr. (President); Jessica Mahone-McCarthy (Vice President); & Billy Mahone III (Operations Manager).
