New Award Created to Honor Kitchen Tune-Up Founder


The theme of our 2019 National Reunion was the “Year of Firsts” and we created a new award that was presented at the event held in Portland, Oregon. The new award is called the Dave Haglund Entrepreneur Award, in honor of Kitchen Tune-Up’s founder.

In order to receive the award, the recipients must embody Dave’s entrepreneurial spirit, demonstrate resilience, and have a growth mentality. The winners were chosen by current President of Kitchen Tune-Up, Heidi Morrissey. She considered all aspects of the owner’s business and chose recipients that were following in the founder’s footprints for success.

This year, eight recipients were selected:


Tara Hansen – Twin Falls, ID


Matt Hubbard – Jesup & Savannah, GA


Mike Lehmann – Columbus, OH


Mark & Mary Beth Levy – Williamsburg, VA


Nick & Tessia Pash – Grand Rapids, MI


Tom & Debi Taube – Charlotte, NC


Jeff & Penny Toren – Main Line, PA


Joel & Jessica Winters – Castle Rock, CO
