January 14, 2010 // Franchising.com // ABERDEEN, SD – Kitchen Tune-Up has been named one of the top 500 franchises in the United States, ranking #151 in Entrepreneur Magazine's Franchise 500®. A home remodeling franchise concept offering a variety of cost-effective services to renew surfaces, add features, and improve a room's layout, also ranked #1 in the Building and Remodeling category, leading this division for the past 20 years as well as #43 on the Top Home-based Franchises and #119 on the Top Global Franchises.
The rankings for all 500 companies are determined using an exclusive formula that takes into account objective and quantifiable factors. The most important factors include financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the system. The franchises that grew the most were the ones who serve a budget-minded consumer, didn't cost as much to set up, or both.

"It is and honor and milestone to be recognized by such a prestigious publication as the #1 Building and Remodeling franchise for the past 20 years. This long-standing recognition speaks volumes about our business and services that we continue to provide franchisees and consumers," Haglund continued.
