Kitchen Tune-Up Bath Remodeling Franchise Ranks First in Category for the Eighteenth Year

For the eighteenth year, Kitchen Tune-Up franchise system has been ranked first in their industry for 2008 by Entrepreneur Magazine.

Aberdeen, SD, December 19, 2007 --( Kitchen Tune-Up announces their placement as first in category by Entrepreneur Magazine, making this the eighteenth time in their twenty year history they’ve attained the coveted spot.

“It’s very exciting,” said Kitchen Tune-Up’s vice president of sales and marketing Heidi Morrissey. “We’re proud to be recognized by the franchising community as the best in our field. 2008 is our twentieth anniversary as a franchise system, so to be able to start out the year with this honor will be especially rewarding.”

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 304 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. We’ve been around for twenty years now and we’ve consistently been ranked number one, but it’s no time to rest on our laurels. 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 years.”
