Franchise FastLane, the industry’s No. 1 franchise sales organization, is proud to announce the addition of Cabinet IQ to their portfolio of 25+ high-performance brands. Founded in 2017, this family owned business was created to revolutionize the kitchen and bath remodeling experience in an annual home improvement marketplace valued at approximately $450 billion. Specializing in the design and installation of cabinets and countertops, Cabinet IQ features 3D blueprint modeling and professional turnkey customer service. Due to the company’s remarkable growth and five-star reputation for quality work, the brand made the decision to franchise their concept in 2022.


“Cabinet IQ’s business model, value proposition, and key differentiators literally check every box when it comes to what we look for in an emerging franchise brand,” stated Carey Gille, CEO of Franchise FastLane. “We’re extremely excited to welcome this up-and-coming kitchen and bath remodeling concept to our portfolio of brands known for providing both high value and potential for franchisees.”


Cabinet IQ is the brainchild of Michael Hartel, who founded the company to address the outdated processes for updating kitchens and baths – an industry badly in need of remodeling its own business model. The Central Texas-based company quickly established a reputation for streamlining the installation process while achieving rave reviews along the way. After being named as one of the Austin Business Journal’s “Fastest Growing Companies,” in 2021, Hartel determined the time had come to franchise the concept nationwide, and developed a ground floor business opportunity that features a low barrier to entry, comprehensive training, and close-knit, ongoing support.


“I’m absolutely thrilled to partner with the Franchise FastLane team,” stated Hartel. “Their reputation as the No. 1 franchise sales organization precedes them.
