Company Overview

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 testing and perfecting his process of restoring interior wood surfaces, Haglund began franchising in 1988. There are now Kitchen Tune-Up franchises throughout North America. Both home-based and retail franchises are available. Today, Kitchen Tune-Up specializes in one-day wood restoration, cabinet refacing, cabinet redooring, cabinet painting, and new cabinets for both residential and commercial customers. In addition, franchisees may also offer replacement hardware, cabinet accessories, countertops, granite tune-ups.
