Kitchen Tune-Up Aims to Help Veterans Become Business Owners

April 26, 2012 // Franchising.com // Kitchen Tune-Up is currently offering a program that supports veterans seeking to own their own home improvement franchise. The company is waiving over 80% of their $39,995 franchise fee, making the investment only $5,000 for honorably discharged veterans. Financing options are available for up to $4,500 for qualified applicants.

“This is the second program of this kind that we have offered,” said Kitchen Tune-Up founder and president, Dave Haglund. In 2010, the company awarded several franchises to veterans as part of a special incentive, and the first was to Frank Skubel of Tallahassee, Florida. Before being awarded a Kitchen Tune-Up franchise he was employed with a large telecommunications company, had been laid off and was in search of a business opportunity. “The business has exceeded my expectations,” said Skubel. “I’m enjoying the satisfaction of making great transformations in the kitchens and baths of my customers, and being my own boss is a great benefit that I haven’t had previously.”

“We are providing veterans with a business opportunity when they transition to civilian life or seek a career change, at a very low initial fee,” said Kitchen Tune-Up founder and president, Dave Haglund. “There are many franchisors offering great programs this year, and we’re proud to play a small part in showing appreciation of our military veterans. Service men and women have proven their leadership and teamwork skills, and we know they will do a fantastic job of stimulating their local economies by utilizing this unique home improvement business.”

If interested, applicants should contact Heidi Morrissey by phone at 800.333.6385 or email franchise@kitchentuneup.com. They can also fill out the interest form at: www.kitchentuneup.com/veterans.html.
