Frank has been married to Diane since 1975 and they have 3 children: Joy (married to John Lucchi), Alesia (married to Rene Woszidlo) and Brandon (married to Angela Soweija). Frank and Diane are grandparents to Gianna, Lucas, Marcus, Antonia, Heidi, Alice, Anton and Madelene.
Frank graduated from the U of M in 1978 with a B.S. in Agribusiness and worked for Hubbard Milling in Mankato for one year. He purchased Carpets by Lindsey in 1979. Flooring options grew as the manufacturers expanded their product offerings. In 1998 Frank renamed Carpets By Lindsey to CBL Floors to reflect the company’s expertise in all flooring, not just carpeting.
The most memorable advice from his dad, Al Hanzal Sr. (a 65-year member of the floor covering union), was to go to college. He didn’t want Frank to crawl around on his knees installing flooring for the rest of his life, like he did. Frank did take the advice, but like his dad, floor covering must be in his genes. That’s why Creating Beautiful Living is the CBL difference.
