Babu Thummalapenta, Aurora, owner and proprietor of Stone City LLC, has recently been named as a Kitchen Refresh franchisee for the Aurora Territory. Officially, the Kitchen Refresh territory covers Aurora, Bennett, Byers, Cottonwood, Dove Valley, Elizabeth, Foxfield, Franktown, Parker, Ponderosa East, Stonegate, Strasburg, and Watkins, but services will be provided throughout all of the greater metro Denver area.
Kitchen Refresh utilizes a room's existing cabinetry to enable homeowners, property managers and landlords, rehabbers, and businesses to have outdated, worn or homely cabinets updated with a new color, new doors, new drawer fronts, new concealed, soft-close hinges, new drawer and door pull hardware and some cabinet additions, modifications or other alterations if desired, as well as new countertops and improvements. Kitchen Refresh offers a beautiful, high quality result with kitchen transformations typically completed in just 1-5 days and for up to 75 percent less than custom or semi-custom cabinets – with the existing cabinet boxes and appliances remaining in place and usable up until the day of installation.
Thummalapenta, residing in the Denver area for the past 21 years, has been involved in the granite industry since childhood, having worked in a family quarrying business since 1989, and founding stone City LLC in 2002, serving the remodeling industry by offering granite, marble and quartz countertops. The Kitchen Refresh services will be an added service option to the countertop services already provided, in addition to cabinet design services they've offered since 2008.
Stone City LLC has extensive experience in countertop and cabinet projects with budget ranges of $5,000 to $100,000.
“I like designing practical and beautiful kitchens, bathrooms and bars for customers with a range of needs, budgets and requirements,” Thummalapenta said. “I also specialize in working with fix-and-flip clients who need to get projects done at a very fast pace.”
Thummalapenta has a Bachelor of Technology degree in mechanical engineering from Kakatiya Institute of Technology and Science, Warangal, Telangana, India.
Thummalapenta and his company are active members of the community, currently serving as president of the Shri Shirdi Saibaba Temple of Rockies - Centennial Colorado, a board member of the Indo American Eye Care Organization, a former board member and advisor of the Colorado Fine Arts Association, an active donor to area homeless shelters, a supporter of schools with special need students, and a food donor to the Ronald McDonald House for patients and their family members.
