This Project Remodeled a Kitchen and a Career

Entrepreneur and mother buys a franchise after being impressed with company's superior kitchen remodel

FRISCO, TX, September 22, 2011 /EIN News/ -- Wanting an updated kitchen is a project that many people have on a to-do list. However, most household projects do not end up changing people's careers as in the case with Amber and Michael Kallstrom.

While Amber is like a typical stay at home mom in many ways, she is far different in many others. Having an MBA and success in the corporate world, Amber combines business savvy, creativity, and high standards of being a mother and homeowner. So in 2009 when her kitchen needed remodeling, her requirements were lofty.

Seeking a company with quality workmanship and a solid reputation is important but Kallstrom had other goals as well. One of Kallstrom's sons has asthma and a traditional 1-4 week demolition and remodel would have led to a dirty dusty situation that may have landed the family in a hotel for a month because of the bad air quality. So, she knew she needed certain things: clean dust-free remodel, a company with a strong reputation, community ties, quick turn-around time, quality, style, and a guarantee.

After numerous quotes and a thorough selection process, she hired Granite Transformation to take on her kitchen remodeling project which included granite countertops. They were so pleased with the results and the company (itself) the Kallstrom family decided to buy and open a franchise in Frisco, TX. To think that an everyday home project can be so impressive that it motivates a family to build and buy a franchise is quite amazing. ″I knew that the company offered everything I valued, including a lifetime guarantee, and I could continue spending more time with my family compared to a corporate work schedule--it was a perfect match,″ said Kallstrom.
