And The Winner Is….

ReBath and 5 Day Kitchens of Phoenix!

ReBath of Phoenix Arizona named Franchise of The Year

We are thrilled to be named “Franchise Of The Year” for both 5 Day Kitchens and ReBath of Phoenix.

In January, The Home Brands Group presented Kurt Kittleson, owner of Re-Bath and 5 Day Kitchens of Phoenix, with this prestigious award at their annual convention. The Home Brands Group Reunion is a convention of hundreds of franchises such as; Re-Bath, 5 Day Kitchens, and bluefrog Plumbing + Drain.

Re-Bath LLC President, Marty Rasmuseen, says, “Kurt has been a successful entrepreneur his entire life. He is committed to developing his team and giving them the opportunity to excel. Above all, he is a leader and team player with the Re-Bath organizations best interests in mind. He encourages all to work not only harder, but smarter.”

Danielle Lund, Marketing Director for Re-Bath and 5 Days of Kitchen of Phoenix says, “Re-bath and 5 Day Kitchens of Phoenix puts the customer first. We all know that the construction business has a negative perception, so it’s our goal at Re-bath and 5 Day Kitchens of Phoenix to give our customers a superior experience from start to finish. We have a dedicated team of people who enjoy their job and helping to give our customers a painless remodeling experience. We wouldn’t be where we are today if it weren’t for our customers. Winning the Franchise of the Year award is the icing on the cake but the true joy is seeing our company grow with satisfied customers.”

Kurt Kittleson founded ReBath in 1979 and took over the Phoenix metro area in March of 2010. Two years later he became the Re-Bath and 5 Day Kitchen remodeler for Northern Arizona. Kittleson says, “Remodeling is a very difficult business for the home owner. We try and make all phases as simple as we can for them. By offering bath, kitchen, and a full line of flooring, we are accomplishing one of our goals, making it simpler and easier for the home owner. Our objective in all 3 lines is to bring as much of our design center to the consumer as possible, so their time and travel for making their choices is minimal. If we do a good job, and we do, why would you want to work with 3 contractors when you can work with one? Our customer satisfaction and convenience is the reason we are Franchise Of The Year. We are all very proud.”

The Golden Age of Kitchens

What Made The 1950s a Revolutionary Time for Kitchens (and how it can help you design the ultimate cooking space)

When we look back at the early 1950s, America was in a time of black-and-white wholesomeness. The dress was modest and heavy, the entertainment was inoffensive and family friendly, and the county was enjoying a post-World-War-II economic boom that allowed returning GIs and their families the chance, for the first time, to invest in homes of their own.

Though the music would soon get faster and louder; the clothing would become more colorful and risqué; and the voices of the American youth would be heard louder and taken more seriously than they ever had before; a revolution of another kind was taking place right in our very homes – and it was happening in the kitchen.

Nothing makes starting your morning routine harder than walking into the bathroom and staring at the same old boring outdated fixtures day after day.
