Kitchen and bath remodeling franchise exceeds all expectations in first quarter

ABERDEEN, S.D. – Kitchen Tune-Up, a national kitchen specialty company known for its five unique services, has exceeded growth goals set for the first quarter, breaking all previously held records for first quarter. From January to March, Kitchen Tune-Up added an astonishing 41 new locations to their map, positioning the brand for robust growth in 2019.

Kitchen Tune-Up’s impressive franchising achievement comes as a result of long-term investment in building its franchise system to support sustained growth.

“This year has already been monumental for our brand, and it is still incredibly early in the year,” said Heidi Morrissey, president of Kitchen Tune-Up. “Our growth in the first quarter has positioned us for success for the rest of 2019 and beyond. Without our incredible franchisees and their teams this growth wouldn’t have been possible.”

Kitchen Tune-Up prides itself not only on hard work and the ability to finish a project in 1-5 days, but on the Trustpoints, premier customer service, and family-like mentality business model. With over 190 locations in 39 states, Kitchen Tune-Up had targeted 30 locations for the first three months of 2019 and ultimately surpassed that goal with a total of 41 locations in the first quarter.

“With more than 30 years of experience to build on, people know that Kitchen Tune-Up is a business they can trust.We are using technology to create tools for our owners to work smarter, not harder.” added Heidi. “Our family-focus on the brand is also why so many people want to buy into Kitchen Tune-Up. You’re not only opening a business, you’re joining a community and we are excited to continue to add new members to our family.”

Taking the reigns of the family business

by Jill Abrahamsen

Heidi Morrissey never planned on joining the family business. In fact, she worked as an elementary school teacher and ran her own home-based business for 11 years until her dad’s years of convincing persuaded her to join his enterprise.

Her father, Dave Haglund, founded Kitchen Tune-Up® in 1986 with the mission of giving wood surfaces a fresh, updated appearance. The tune-up is an inexpensive, convenient way for customers to get a new look in their kitchens (and bathrooms) without the hassle and expense of a major overhaul.

The business was an immediate success, and in 1988, Kitchen Tune-Up sold its first franchise. Over the years, the Kitchen Tune-Up system expanded to include cabinet refacing, redooring, custom cabinets, storage solutions, and more. Morrissey joined in 2003, taking on marketing and sales as well as a major rebranding of the company.
Morrissey’s leadership impressed her dad so much that she eventually took his place at the helm of the company. Her passion for the brand—and the franchise opportunity—has led Kitchen Tune-Up to be a major player in the industry.

“People don’t even believe it when I tell them about the ease and value of this opportunity,” Morrissey says. “Franchisees can run the business out of their homes and grow it at their own pace.” The company offers extensive training, including working with the home office team for the first 12 weeks, plus ongoing webinars and support. “We are here for our franchisees every step of the way,” she adds.

With more than 30 years in business, Kitchen Tune-Up offers investors a great opportunity with a well-known name. There is no carpentry background or heavy lifting needed to own this business, but an eye for design doesn’t hurt. “We are looking for partners who are self-starters,” Morrisey says. “Women are our customers and female owners have a natural connection from the start.”
