We have had many military veterans involved in our franchises that have been successful. Their service background has given them the leadership skills, work ethic, and dedication to teamwork that is necessary in running a successful Kitchen Tune-Up business.

Kitchen Tune-Up founder and president, Dave Haglund, understands what is like to have loved ones overseas, fighting for our freedom. To thank Veterans for all of their sacrifices they and their families have made, Haglund and Kitchen Tune-Up are offering 10 free franchises to honorably discharged veterans.
Like many of us, Dave Haglund knows a thing or two about having loved ones overseas serving our country. The Kitchen Tune-Up founder and president has four older brothers who served in the Korean Conflict and Vietnam War. One of his brothers, Lyle, made a career out of the military, serving for 21 years until he retired. Now, at the age of 80, he resides in a nursing home. “I have great respect for the men and women who serve our country,” explained Haglund. “I understand what it is like to have a loved one gone, fighting for our freedom. I wanted to honor them, and especially honor Lyle, who served three tours overseas himself.”
To thank Veterans for all of their sacrifices they and their families have made, Haglund and Kitchen Tune-Up are offering 10 free franchises to honorably discharged veterans. This includes the franchise fee, exclusive territory, training and the start-up package. This program starts now and will run until all 10 franchises are awarded.
The Kitchen Tune-Up franchise has had a lot of success with working with Veterans in the past. Over 22 veterans currently work throughout the many Kitchen Tune-Up franchise locations and at the Home Office. “As a business owner and associate, I feel we need to do our part in showing appreciation,” said Haglund. “We have had many military veterans involved in our franchises that have been successful. Their service background has given them the leadership skills, work ethic, and dedication to teamwork that is necessary in running a successful Kitchen Tune-Up business.”
The military community has already showered the Kitchen Tune-Up office with e-mails and calls to thank us for our initiative. “We feel grateful that our company’s success has allowed to us to offer this program,” said Haglund.
Kitchen Tune-Up’s Veterans Program is offering one free franchise in the following territories: Savannah, Georgia; Mobile, Alabama; Biloxi, Mississippi; Baton Rouge, LA; Kansas City, Missouri; Memphis, Tennessee; Tallahassee, Florida; Omaha, Nebraska; Tulsa, Oklahoma; and San Antonio, TX.
