Military Veterans Find Success as Kitchen Tune-Up Franchise Owners

July 03, 2012 // // Why do military veterans make outstanding franchise owners? The answer is simple for Kitchen Tune-Up Founder and President, David Haglund, “A common thread among service men and women is an excellent work ethic and strong commitment to following a system.” Currently, Kitchen Tune-Up has 155 franchise territories, 28 of which are owned by military veterans. Senior Vice President of Operations, Jeff Dorn, is also a veteran who served eight years in the Army.

In the past year, numerous businesses and franchises have made a push to recruit veterans with a wide range of excellent programs. Kitchen Tune-Up led the way in recruiting veterans back in 2010. In 2012, Kitchen Tune-Up launched another opportunity for veterans. Their 2012 program waives $35,000 of the standard $40,000 franchise fee for qualifying honorably discharged veterans. This is a great opportunity for anyone who has considered owning their own business. Overall, this program provides the opportunity to purchase a home remodeling franchise for an initial investment of only $5,000 with financing options available.

Eric Clement of Lewisville, Texas is the first recipient of Kitchen Tune-Up’s 2012 Veterans Program. Clement served in the United States Navy from 1984 - 2008. Prior to being awarded a Kitchen Tune-Up franchise, he owned his own photography business while attending DeVry University. “Kitchen Tune-Up spent quality time to make sure I’m on the right track. I’m so glad to be part of the family!” said Clement.
