Luke Robinson,the middle son of Mike and Barbara Robinson, was born and raised in Hanford, California. Luke attended Chapman University and graduated with a BS in Accounting. While attending Chapman University, he worked as a paid intern for Wachovia Securities, where he gained considerable experience doing portfolio analyses, retirement plans, and 401Ks. After college, he returned to Hanford and went to work for another Robinson family entity becoming the General Manager for Adventure Park. Later, he went to work for Martin C. Garcia Accountancy where he honed his accounting skills. While there, Luke enjoyed helping clients who were panicked about their IRS notices. He liked calming them down and then helping them resolve their situations happily. Luke is a member of CalCPA. Today, Luke is the Controller for both Robinson's Interiors Carpet One in Hanford and Robinson's Flooring in Fresno. In addition, he is busy learning the flooring business inside out. When not working, Luke loves to spend time with his wife and three children and, of course, the huge Robinson family.
Veronica Haile is often the first person you encounter when you phone or visit Robinson's Interiors. She is the cheerful voice behind, "Robinson's Carpet One!" She is also an ace at keeping paperwork moving, especially on the commercial side when builders need all their documents in order. She's been with the company since 1995.
As a young independent contractor, Mike Robinson installed draperies and carpets in homes. One day he found his spare bedroom full of draperies and his garage full of carpet, so he went down to Chinatown and rented a space. Mike began his business with a $35 dollar investment and a handshake with the landlord. That was in 1980. At first, he shared one desk with one secretary. Today, Robinson's Interiors Carpet One has numerous employees and does millions of dollars in business both in the residential and commercial sectors. Mike’s top concern is that his staff of flooring specialists does each job right and that customers get the best flooring possible for their budget. Today, Mike is thrilled to be working in the homes of his first customers’ grandchildren. In addition, Mike loves to give back to the community. He's especially pleased with the Homes for Our Troops project, which provided a mortgage-free home for a severely wounded veteran.

Jake Robinson, the youngest son of Mike and Barbara Robinson, grew up around the flooring business and hanging out at the store. But he never saw himself actually going into the family business. It wasn’t until he grew up that he was able to appreciate the good name and solid business that his father had built. He wanted to become a part of continuing and building upon that legacy, so he joined the business in 2015. Prior to that, Jake attended St. Rose-McCarthy Catholic School, Hanford West High School, and California State University Fresno where he graduated with a degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Accounting and Finance. Jake is married and has two beautiful children ... so far. When not working, Jake enjoys spending time with his family, including eight nieces and nephews.
Danny Coulon wants customers to know that Robinson's Interiors only does floors. At big box stores the staff have to know a little about everything. They don't have the time to learn a lot about any one product. The flooring specialists at Robinson's know one heck of a lot about floors! "We don't know much about refrigerators, plumbing, or paint. We know about floors," says Danny. Danny originally came to Robinson's after a number of years in the sporting goods business. So selling floor coverings was a bit of a change for him. Yet, he really found a home here and has been very successful. He likes helping people create whole new looks for their homes.
