Why Cabinet IQ?

At Cabinet IQ, we help people make their renovation dreams come true by transforming ugly and poorly arranged spaces into beautiful and functional masterpieces. Our company arose out of founder Michael Hartel’s nightmarish home renovation experience. After spending too much time and money on a project that should have been easier and more affordable, he decided to create a full-service cabinet and countertop company that would simplify kitchen and bathroom remodeling. From his desire to help customers navigate a difficult process, a profitable home services franchise was born.

For franchise investors, the initial investment is more accessible that home services franchises with a broader menu of services. Cabinet IQ startup costs range from $143,350 to $223,300, including the $45,000franchise fee. Qualified candidates need liquidity of at least$225,000. Best of all, no industry experience is required. We’ll provide all the training and ongoing support you need.

Build Your Legacy as a Franchise Partner

What We Do?

Simply put, we design and install in-stock and semi-custom cabinets and countertops. Our modern showrooms feature the latest trends and options for every budget. But what really sets us apart is our customer-focused approach to business. Because we understand that most of our customers have never remodeled a kitchen or bathroom before, Cabinet IQ guides them through the entire process and helps them make wise choices with a three-step formula for success:

  1. Learn – We learn about the customer and their remodeling needs while also educating them on every aspect of their cabinet and countertop project.
  2. Design – Using the latest design software and best cabinet brands, we work with the customer to create their dream kitchen or bathroom.
  3. Install – We professionally install the customer’s cabinets and countertops, providing courteous and timely service of the highest quality.

Cabinet IQ stands out from many franchises in the home services industry because of our focus on cabinets and countertops allows us to achieve a level of expertise that would be impossible for a jack-of-all trades franchise. We have simplified the kitchen remodeling game for the benefit of customers and franchisees alike.

What We Don’t Do

At Cabinet IQ, we believe that specializing in only cabinets and countertops allows us to focus on what we do better than anyone else. Plus, it simplifies the business and has proven to produce the best profit margins. Therefore, we don’t offer the following services: general contracting, flooring, tile installation, plumbing, electrical, sheetrock, painting, full custom cabinets, or millwork. To help our customers find qualified providers for these services, we have a referral network of trusted trade partners we can recommend. By focusing our business on what we’re passionate about – cabinets and countertops – we’ve become an efficient and highly successful home services franchise.

This is a much simpler business model for our franchisees to run because they can focus on our specialized services and become experts in their field, which ultimately leads to higher customer satisfaction and more word-of-mouth referrals.

Our Mission

Through our passion for our work, knowledge of the industry, attention to detail, and commitment to teamwork, Cabinet IQ is building the most respected cabinet and countertop company in the nation. We have perfected the formula for providing the best kitchen and bathroom remodeling experience from concept to completion, and we want to share it with like-minded entrepreneurs.
