Since 1991, The Kitchen Source has provided client-focused design and transformation service to Dallas, Fort Worth and surrounding areas. We partner with our clients to fully understand their ideas, needs and goals for kitchen, bath and living space remodels. Together, we explore options, review details and formulate a completely customized client-inspired design plan. We then work with our clients to select the perfect finishes ranging from hand crafted made-to-order custom cabinets, professional grade appliances, premium grade surface materials, exquisite fixtures, lighting and hardware selections.
“A client-focused experience, unique and finely constructed products, and a team of professionals passionate about their crafts are the cornerstone of our success.”
For more than 30 years, Robert Johns and The Kitchen Source have been installing what he describes as a “piece of art in the home that becomes integral to daily life.” With a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics and an MBA degree in Finance, he originally envisioned a corporate career and a corner office. Thankfully, things don’t always go as planned.
While Johns grew up in his family’s kitchen remodeling business, he initially pursued a career in insurance. At a big board meeting in New York City, Johns realized that he desired a successful business that could also provide a family focused life. Ultimately, he decided a smaller business would better suit him and his young family and he opened his own kitchen remodeling store in 1981.
Johns’ secret to success is creating an impeccable client experience that is based on quality and trust. He provides an exquisite product and pairs that with a passionate and creative team that engages the client every step of the way. The fact that a significant portion of his business is repeat clients speaks to the conscientious customer service that is the foundation of The Kitchen Source.
“A customer is the most important visitor on our premises, he is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption in our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider in our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favor by serving him. He is doing us a favor by giving us an opportunity to do so.” – Mahatma Gandhi
As a little girl, Jennifer was often found playing hide and seek in the showroom of The Kitchen Source as her dad worked. Filled with full-scale kitchens and bathrooms, she often ducked behind the cabinets and walls of the spaces so that she could watch her dad “make friends.” While she knew that her dad helped people create beautiful spaces in their homes, she just thought he had a lot of friends come visit him at the showroom. She didn’t realize until much later that these “friends” were actually clients and that these friendly conversations were how her father built one of the leading kitchen and bath design and remodel companies in Dallas and Fort Worth.
While Jennifer could have easily jumped into the family business, she first wanted to gain success on her own. After ten years in the corporate world and achieving many accolades, Jennifer felt called to join her father in the business that had been in her family for two generations. She joined The Kitchen Source in 2013.
With honed business skills and a knack for details like her father, Jennifer is leading The Kitchen Source alongside her dad into the digital era. She is working to strategically blend the keen sense of customer service and personal attention that is the cornerstone of her father’s business with the immediacy and customized interaction that is demanded by today’s consumers.
A graduate of Texas A & M University, Jennifer can often be found supporting the Horned Frogs, Texas Rangers, or Dallas Cowboys. She has a natural zest for life and counts her family, friends and God among her greatest blessings.
I highly recommend The Kitchen Source. Our kitchen remodel is beautiful! It is a fantastic update to our home, and I feel 10 years younger in my new kitchen! What a deal!
I worked with Lane Taylor at The Kitchen Source. Lane and my designer, Suzy Kaye, were a fabulous team. Lane is a talented designer, smart and fun. The customer service she provided during every phase of our kitchen remodel was exceptional. Her attention to every detail ensured the kitchen remodel went smoothly, was finished on time, and that the finished product met all of my expectations.
From the initial contact with my designer, Elizabeth, to the final checklist, I couldn't have been happier. The Kitchen Source team is wonderful to work with, the project came in on time and on budget, and the result is gorgeous.
My experience with Kitchen Source was outstanding. I live in the country outside of Fort Worth, TX. Have a unique house in my mind. And had very limited space in my very dated kitchen, needing total replacement. With resources limited in my community, decided to take this project to Kitchen Source in Fort Worth.
The designers were very knowledgeable and easy to work with, left out no details, and came up with a stunning plan. The installers responsible for implementing the plan did so with minimal interruption to my home and life and did a fabulous job. The site supervisor visited on a regular basis and ensured every last detail was perfect.
