January 04, 2010 // Franchising.com // ABERDEEN, SD – Kitchen Tune-Up, a home remodeling franchise concept offering a variety of cost-effective services to renew surfaces, add features, and improve a room's layout, ranked No. 18 in the financial strength category and #92 overall in a comprehensive listing of the nation's top 300 franchise companies by AllBusiness.com.
AllBusiness.com's team of editors researched, compiled, and analyzed more than 800 franchise systems to compile the AllStar Franchises list. The rankings assessed the strengths of franchising companies based upon criteria such as Web visibility and the latest financial strength scores from Dun & Bradstreet.
Kitchen Tune-Up moved up significantly in the AllStar financial strength category due to an outstanding ranking, where they were positioned at #88 last year. The company is still run by founder Dave Haglund and his daughter Heidi Morrissey, who is vice president of sales and marketing and recently earned the Certified Franchise Executive designation.
With home improvement sales projected to reach more than $381 billion by the end of 2012, Kitchen Tune-Up is continuing to help homeowners realize their dream homes on any budget. Having already provided professional design and installation services to more than 200,000 satisfied customers since 1988, Kitchen Tune-Up specializes in cabinet refacing and redooring, wood reconditioning and custom cabinetry, among others. Services may also include custom storage systems and bathroom remodeling.
"It is an honor to be presented with such a prestigious ranking in the franchise industry, said Dave Haglund, President and Founder of Kitchen Tune-Up, noting that the company has 204 franchises based in the U.S. "We are continuing to see a growing demand for our services as more consumers are residing in their homes longer due to the downturn in the housing market as well as entrepreneurs who want to take control of their own destiny and become a business owner, even if they don't have remodeling experience," Haglund continued.
Kitchen Tune-Up takes pride in preserving the tranquility of a home by offering a quiet, clean, quick and affordable kitchen remodel. While the average kitchen renovation takes 5-6 weeks to complete, Kitchen Tune-Up typically completes 70 percent of its projects in fewer than three days. In addition to its broad range of services, Kitchen Tune-Up prides itself on providing its customers with the fresh new look they are looking for without the remodeling hassles they may have experienced in the past. Kitchen Tune-Up further differentiates itself from ordinary remodeling service companies by staying true to its trust points, including guaranteed estimates and work, timeliness, cleanliness and responsiveness, among others.
