Kitchen Tune-Up

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

Why Us? 

  •  A Proven System of Operation
    Experience is defined as the act of living through an event. With nearly 40 years in the kitchen and bath industry and in franchising since 1988, our award-winning system has seen it all. Our system of operation gives you the knowledge, guidelines and methods you need to be successful.

  • An Established Marketing System
    Running a kitchen and bath remodeling business has its own set of rules, and Kitchen Tune-Up has the rulebook. With or without marketing experience, you will learn a whole new way to find the clients you need. Kitchen Tune-Up knows what it takes to get business – and we cover all the bases.

  • A Robust Training Program
    We are here to train you on how to run a successful business. We begin your training with a 4 week Home Study Course, followed up with an all-inclusive 8 day training at our Home Office in Aberdeen, South Dakota. You’ll learn how to run, manage, market and sell your product lines. After training, you will be assigned a mentor from our Home Office team and you will work one on one with them for your first 12 weeks. You will also attend weekly and monthly live training webinars. We work together to ensure your growth as a business owner and as an individual. But remember, this is only the beginning!

  • Ongoing Training
    Our philosophy at Kitchen Tune-Up is training and never stop. Our industry is growing with new ideas. With this mindset, we’re always striving to keep you the most informed and trained consultant in the kitchen and bath field. Your knowledge will keep expanding with our monthly newsletters, online owner’s forum, weekly emails, National Reunions and online webinars.

  • Group Buying Power
    Negotiating a better price for the franchisees and their customers is just one more benefit of working within a franchise system. With the power of a group of franchise owners, you’ll find some of the best prices in the industry. With a larger volume buy comes more attention to each owner and special benefits not afforded to local “mom and pop” shops.
