Jerry and Shelly Carr: Kitchen Refresh of Bloomington franchisees

Jerry and Shelly Carr, Rochester, have recently been named as Kitchen Refresh franchisees for the Bloomington Territory. The Carrs also provide services in the Rochester area under a dealer relationship. Officially, the Bloomington Territory covers Bloomington, Burnsville, Chaska, Eagan, Inver Grove Heights, Mendota, Mendota Heights, Pike Island, Richfield, Savage, Shakopee, St. Paul Park, and Sunfish Lake, but they will also provide Kitchen Refresh remodel services to communities outside that area.

Kitchen Refresh utilizes a room's existing cabinetry to enable homeowners, landlords, and businesses to have outdated, worn or homely kitchen, bath, bar or other cabinets updated with a new color, new doors, new drawer fronts, new concealed, soft-close hinges, new drawer and door pull hardware and some cabinet additions, modifications or other alterations if desired. Kitchen Refresh offers a beautiful, high quality result with kitchen transformations typically completed in just 1-5 days and for up to 75 percent less than a custom or semi-custom cabinet order.

Jerry, originally from Portand, Mich., is a mechanical engineer from Kettering University, Flint, Mich., and has been providing contracting and finish carpentry services since 2003.

Shelly, originally from Flint, Mich., has experience buying, improving and reselling dilapidated homes.
