Kitchen Tune-Up, a kitchen renovation franchise, will become a dealer for the ClosetTrac configurable closet cabinetry, a product line made by Sauder Woodworking's WoodTrac operation.
Dave Haglund, the president and founder of Kitchen Tune-Up,  became interested in WoodTrac’s products for potential kitchen usage after reading about the them in various trade publications. From there, WoodTrac director of sales and marketing, Jonathan Zublena, connected with Jessica Ruenz, vendor relations and training coordinator for Kitchen Tune-Up. After discussing the mutual benefits, it was decided their partnership would be a great fit for both companies.

WoodTrac closet systems are an easy and affordable way to add functionality and value to a space in a small amount of time, which supports Kitchen Tune-Up’s eight customer service ‘trustpoints’ applied to every project.

“WoodTrac aligns to our belief that updating a home can be a fast, affordable and enjoyable experience without hassle or disruption to one’s daily routine,” says Ruenz.

With this new partnership, WoodTrac will be helping Kitchen Tune-Up owners expand beyond kitchens and bathrooms and into closets or other rooms requiring storage solutions. “Our products can be functional in virtually any room of the home,” says Zublena. “We look forward to educating the franchise owners about our products’ versatility at the Kitchen Tune-Up national reunion in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina this February.”
