Attention to detail from start to finish.
Kuhns Group Inc., founded in 2000, is a general contracting firm located in Dayton, Ohio. We have built or renovated more than 250 restaurants across seven states. The majority of our projects are Kentucky Fried Chicken; however, we also have quite a bit of experience with dual-branded restaurants. Kuhns Group Inc. is a YUM! Brands Inc. (KFC, Taco Bell & Pizza Hut) approved general contractor. We have completed 20+ Vision 3.0/Modern Legacy projects as well as served as the general contractor for many prototype stores located in both Louisville, KY and Columbus, OH.
The turnkey approach that we take at Kuhns Group Inc. keeps our clients coming back. We understand the complexities inherent in the restaurant market and we are committed to bringing our clients the quality they expect and deserve. Through impeccable management techniques, careful cost analysis, and attention to detail, we offer superior quality with value also in mind. We are proud to say that 100% of our business is referral based. Most of our clients prefer that we handle the entire project from the permitting stage through certificate of occupancy.
Our company structure includes 3 project superintendents, who oversee the day-to-day operations on site, while owner, Chad Kuhns, acts as Project Manager for every job. He is completely involved throughout the entire project, from concept to completion. Kuhns Group Inc. employs a very select group of people to enable the company to self-perform the majority of a project. This allows us more control of the project and also keeps costs down for the owner. Most of our employees have worked for the company for over 7 years. We have also formed a select group of sub-contractors that are willing to travel and enable us to keep projects on schedule while maintaining the budget. Most of our subcontractors have been working with our company for more than 9 years.
