Kitchen Tune-Up Celebrates Arbor Day by Launching “Tune-Ups for Trees” Campaign
May 01, 2017 // Franchising.com // ABERDEEN, S.D. - The national kitchen remodeling franchise, Kitchen Tune-Up, is encouraging homeowners to do their part to reduce waste and conserve natural resources by reconditioning their existing cabinets instead of replacing them. As part of their “Tune-Ups for Trees” campaign, Kitchen Tune-Up has partnered with the Arbor Day Foundation to promote their mission of inspiring people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees. To bring attention to reducing waste, with each Tune-Up wood restoration completed by its franchise locations nationwide, Kitchen Tune-Up will donate a tree in the client’s name to be planted in a US National Forest.
The Kitchen Tune-Up website explains the company’s Tune-Up service as a wood reconditioning process that restores and repairs the original finish on cabinets and wood surfaces. During the preservation-friendly process the existing cabinets are left entirely, so no major waste is produced, yet they end up with a near-new appearance.
Originally begun in 1993 as the “Plant a Tree” campaign, Kitchen Tune-Up had 25,000 seedlings planted in the Black Hills of South Dakota. The company teamed up with the Arbor Day Foundation again in 2008 in celebration of their 20th anniversary to continue promoting sustainability in kitchen and bathroom remodeling.
Heidi Morrissey, president of the franchise system, said the company is recognizing homeowners with more than the tree. “Each person who has a Tune-Up project completed will receive a greeting card from our Home Office team expressing our appreciation, and will have their name added to the Tune-Ups for Trees page on our website. Now in our 29th year as a franchise family, we’re proud to do a small part toward replanting efforts in our National Forests on behalf of our clients.”
