Kitchen and Bath Remodeler Ranks First in Category for the Nineteenth Year

For the nineteenth year, Kitchen Tune-Up franchise system has been ranked first in their industry for 2009 by Entrepreneur Magazine.

Aberdeen, SD, March 01, 2009 --( Kitchen Tune-Up announces their placement as first in category by Entrepreneur Magazine, making this the nineteenth time in their more than twenty year history they’ve attained the coveted spot.

“We’re very proud” said Kitchen Tune-Up’s founder Dave Haglund “We’re proud to be recognized by the franchising community as the best in our field. We know we’re a strong system and treat our customers well, but it feels good to have an outside source like Entrepreneur validate that as well.”

Entrepreneur ranks the franchises based on their financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the system. Also considered are the number of years a company has been in business and the length of time it's been franchising, startup costs, litigation, percentage of terminations and whether the company provides financing. Financial data is analyzed by an independent CPA. In the overall rankings, Kitchen Tune-Up placed number 180 out of more than 2200 systems registered in the US.

Craig Green, director of franchise development for the company, talks about what the top ranking means for franchise sales. “While we love to tell prospective owners that we’re number one, we back that up with a family-like environment that ensures our franchisees have the support they need to succeed. That’s the real win in our book. I tell everyone looking at our franchise that we score so high, but it’s our franchisee’s validation that really sells for us. This just gives us motivation to continue building and make our system even stronger so we can be around and in first place for the next twenty plus years.”
