Terry Wheat is a rare breed among the inductees: a successful Retailer and Software Developer whose B2B solutions have been instrumental in developing computer software for flooring professionals. The enterprise that grew to become Wheat’s Carpet One, was established in 1969 and operated out of the kitchen of Wheat’s house in Alabama. Using what he learned as a retailer, he went on to develop an integrated software package tailored for the floor covering business. He ultimately established RFMS, which now serves 2,000 clients, representing more than 5,000 store locations and $6 billion in annual sales.
