dishwasher receptacle


I am trying to install a dishwasher but, under my sink there is only a single receptacle for the garbage disposal.

I want to change out the single receptacle for a duplex receptacle which I am planning to split wire.
How do I run new cable wire through a finished wall to the disposal switch above the countertop?
The less damage to the wall as possible please.
Thank you

Is this a built-in dishwasher? Ideally it should have it's own dedicated circuit as should the disposal.If a built-in could you go through the floor and put a new recepticle in the dishwasher space? Not sure if this would meet code in your area.On my (many year old) dishwasher it just hard-wired inside the toe-kick with no recepticle.
