Kitchen Tune-Up Franchise System ~ Remodeling your expectations.

Kitchen Tune-Up specializes in affordable kitchen and updates for residential and commercial enterprises. We are known for our signature one-day wood restoration Tune-Up, cabinet refacing, cabinet redooring, new cabinets, Granite Tune-Up and storage solutions. Our standout remodeling concept offers personalized service and incredible results that are structured around customer service Trustpoints to ensure a hassle-free experience from start to finish.

“Remodeling Your Expectations” is both the slogan and the mission guiding each project through completion for a truly transformational customer experience.

Franchisees within the Kitchen Tune-Up system receive comprehensive training with ongoing sales and business coaching. They also benefit from the knowledge and experience shared between owners – the domino effect of the expertise is invaluable.

Our founder, Dave Haglund, began a cabinet distributorship in 1975 and found his niche market 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 sold his first franchise in 1988. Over the years, and with the help of many talented franchise owners, the Kitchen Tune-Up system expanded to include cabinet refacing, redooring, custom cabinets, storage solutions and more. There are now Kitchen Tune-Up franchises throughout North America. Both home-based and retail franchises are available.

Several members of the Haglund family have been involved in the family business including Dave’s oldest daughter, Heidi Morrissey. Heidi has served as vice president of sales & marketing since 2003. She was announced as the new president of the Kitchen Tune-Up franchise system in January 2017. Heidi oversees franchise training and serves as an effective sales and business coach for our franchise partners.
