Kitchen-tune-up- Matt Layette ABERDEEN, SD  - Kitchen Tune-Up, a national kitchen cabinet and bath vanity refinishing and refacing franchise, has opened two new locations: one in Burley, ID, the other in Fort Collins, CO.

Kitchen Tune-Up services range from restoring and repairing existing wood cabinets, refacing cabinets and replacing doors and hardware, to installing completely new custom-built cabinetry. 

The Burley location is within a Sears Hometown Store, owned by Judy Fowler since 1994. Last year, Kitchen Tune-up signed an agreement with Sears Hometown & Outlet Stores, Inc. to open the cabinet refacing franchises inside the chain of privately-owned Sears retail outlets.  

“Kitchen Tune-Up is an exciting addition to our store,” says Fowler. “Our customers looking to purchase new appliances can also update their kitchen with cabinet refacing, redooring, or a 1 Day Tune-Up.”
