5 Day Kitchens Opens In Chattanooga

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

New franchise owners Dustin, Travis and Nelson Wong are opening 5 Day Kitchens in Chattanooga.  They also own C&D Cultured Marble, and they opened a Re-Bath franchise in Chattanooga in 2000.

“We are excited to welcome the Wongs to the 5 Day Kitchens family,” said Re-Bath and 5 Day Kitchens President and CEO Mark Dawson. “They hold a wealth of experience in both remodeling and as business owners, so they’re the perfect candidates for bringing the services 5 Day Kitchens offers to Chattanooga-area families.” 

Dustin, Travis and their father, Nelson, all were born in Chattanooga and graduated from UTC. Nelson is married to Marcetta, who teaches at Cloud Springs Elementary, part of the Catoosa County Schools system. Travis and his wife, Kayla, have one daughter, and Kayla teaches at Tiger Creek Elementary School in Tunnel Hill, Ga. Dustin is married to Jessica, who works for BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee.

The Wongs have assembled a team of installers to work for their new company.

"I'm excited to form a business relationship with a first-class company and operation like 5 Day Kitchens,” said Dustin. “After months of research, nobody came close to the professionalism and integrity portrayed by this company. They give their franchisees all the ammunition they need for a fail-proof concept. I can't wait to open my doors in March to share these amazing services with Chattanooga-area homeowners."
