About Kitchen Tune-Up
Dave Haglund began a cabinet distributorship in 1975 and found his market niche while visiting a customer’s home in 1986. Noticing that the 6-year-old kitchen was starting to look a little run-down, but wasn’t ready to be remodeled, he offered to touch up some of the worn areas. When the customer was thrilled with the results, Haglund realized the market potential of this concept.
After years of testing and perfecting his process of restoring interior wood surfaces, Haglund began franchising in 1989. There are now Kitchen Tune-Up franchises throughout North America. Both retail and homebased franchises are available.
Franchisees offer wood restoration and repair for both residential and commercial customers, as well as finish recoating, door replacement and a branded line of custom cabinets. In addition, franchisees may offer shelf lining, replacement hardware, cabinet organizing accessories, and wood care and maintenance.
