Why Kitchen Remodeling is Personally Rewarding for Kitchen Solvers Franchise Owners
The kitchen is the heart of the home, and customers light up when they see what Kitchen Solvers franchise owners can do
When John Andreas and his family gather for the holidays and start telling stories, the kitchen is often the main setting, like “the time mom burned the buns and smoke was everywhere and the smoke alarms all went off.” The Kitchen Solvers franchise owner in Greer, S.C., calls the kitchen the most important room in the house, and says he gets a lot of pleasure from helping homeowners get a kitchen that will provide a beautiful backdrop for years of memories.
“You have to appreciate what a kitchen means to most people. It is the center of the home. You can’t look at it as just a job,” John says. “It’s more than just cabinets and appliances. You see that when you talk to people. They get passionate about it. They get passionate about what it is going to look like and what it’s going to be.”
“Anything you do in life, you want to be able to help people”
If you ask Kitchen Solvers owners, aside from running a successful business, what they enjoy the most about their work, the answer is usually the same: Seeing homeowners light up when they see their gorgeous, remodeled kitchen, which is often delivered at a much lower price that they realized was possible.
“When you finish a kitchen and see the smile on the wife’s face, when she’s happy and thrilled, you know you’re making people happy in their own homes,” says Art Mancino, who serves metro Atlanta from his Kitchen Solvers in Roswell, Ga. “Anything you do in life, you want to be able to help people. You want to provide satisfaction whether you’re a volunteer worker or anything else. If you can’t provide satisfaction, you’re not going to be fulfilled. When the homeowners want to refer you, and you’ve made their life a little better, that’s a good feeling.”
Kitchen Solvers, which has its home office in La Crosse, Wisc., has been giving homeowners beautiful kitchens for 30 years. Our franchises have remodeled more than 45,000 kitchens, and about 65 percent of our customers come to us through referrals from other happy clients. Our owners enjoy the backing of a nationwide franchise system with a strong brand and 68 locations that are able to pool their buying power in order to earn discounts from suppliers. Those discounts enable our owners to offer quality materials and options at prices that can’t be matched by independent remodelers and handyman businesses.
Kitchen Solvers handles all types of kitchen remodels, but specializes in cabinet refacing, which can deliver a beautifully updated kitchen at a fraction of the price of a full remodel. Whereas the average “minor” kitchen remodel costs nearly $20,000 and lasts three weeks, Kitchen Solvers’ average project is less than $8,000 and takes about three days. And with refacing, the kitchen remains usable throughout the remodel.
“We take the pain and discomfort out of remodeling your kitchen,” says Suzie Crowley, who owns the Kitchen Solvers franchise in La Crosse, Wisc., with her husband Brian. “People feel really good when they have a beautiful new kitchen that meets their needs better. I’ve had people tell me, ‘I like to cook more now!’ It’s such an important room for the whole home. When you entertain, everybody gathers in the kitchen. It’s a lot of fun. It is an awesome business.”
