National home remodeling franchise Kitchen Tune-Up has awarded a free franchise under its Veteran’s Program to Frank Skubel of Tallahassee, FL.

The program, which launched in 2010 by Kitchen Tune-Up Founder and President David Haglund, "offers free franchises to honorably discharged veterans throughout the nation. This includes the franchise fee, exclusive territory, training and the start-up package for a total of $40,000 in initial fees.” Kitchen Tune-Up will continue to run the Veteran’s Program into February 2011.

Skubel served in the U.S, Army from 1967 to 1971. Prior to receiving the Kitchen Tune-Up franchise,  he was the vice president of operations at a large Florida telecommunications firm before being laid off.
