In 1967 the Kitchen Center was conceived by Russ Burke, who then brought in a partner. That partner retired a few years later and he brought in another partner which is how it ran until 1987. In 1987 Russ, planning his retirement in the near future, brought in someone to train in the expectations of that person purchasing his half of the business and later buying his partners half of the business. That trainee was Dave Bartlett, who has since purchased both
halves of the business and has brought in a partner of his own, Brian Forestal as VP of Production. Since Dave’s purchasing the 2nd half in 1992, the Kitchen Center, while supplying custom design, cabinetry & remodeling, has grown to consistently be one of the top 10 Wood-Mode/Brookhaven Cabinetry Showrooms in the country! Today the Kitchen Center, with a staff of 13 and growing professional designers & support, continues to supply the highest quality of design, cabinetry & design build services.
