Franchisor Profile

In operation for more than 20 years, Kitchens Direct was launched by Karl Te Raki in 1997. With professional experience in cabinet making and joinery, he was passionate about the industry when he started the business, and his passion has only grown in the decades since he first launched. Over the last 20 years, he has taken the company to new heights, incorporating design, manufacturing and installation into a complete kitchen renovation model that has seen him build strong professional relationships with builders throughout the area. Moving from strength to strength, Kitchens Direct has seen demand for their total kitchen service grow throughout New Zealand. As trends in entertaining and housekeeping spotlighting the kitchen as a more versatile space, homeowners are looking to renovate, perfectly positioning Kitchens Direct to expand into new locations across the country.

Karl first became interested in franchising 5 years ago, when he started seriously considering how to bring Kitchens Direct into more homes throughout New Zealand. Since then, he has worked hard to develop a highly lucrative franchise model that will grow the brand and refine the team behind the country’s best total kitchen renovation service. With new territories opening, and enquiries pouring in every day, there has never been a better time to enter the installation industry.
