One of the greatest benefits of the Dry Cleaning Industry is how scalable the business can be. Start by building your centralized environmentally friendly plant with a retail store. This facility will enable you to then build an additional 5 satellite stores for a fraction of the initial cost that can be strategically located within your territory and serviced by your plant.Satellite store footprints can be very flexible and give us the ability to put them in virtually any location from 600 s/f – 1,200 s/f.
Combine our boutique retail store with your own full service plant to bring the future of dry cleaning to your community. You will offer a full line of services including Dry Cleaning, Shirt Laundry, Wedding Gown Heirlooming, Leather and Suede Cleaning and much more. You will also have several additional revenue streams which include Lapels Express Pickup & Delivery where you will be able to serve Hotels, Companies and Private Residences.
Lapels® Dry Cleaning is a recognized name in dry cleaning. When you own our franchise, you benefit from that name recognition, which helps build your business.
Lapels® Franchising has built a track record of helping our franchisees grow their businesses. We get you started and provide ongoing support regardless of where you’re located or what challenges you face.
Lapels® Dry Cleaning has not only pioneered an innovative dry cleaning store concept but has gone one step further with the establishment of trend setting Quality Control and Wholesaler Liaison positions that are filled by Lapels® franchisees, the people at the store level who have day-to-day, hands-on knowledge of what the customer wants.
With a Lapels® franchise you are in business for yourself but not by yourself. Our corporate team will be right there working with you to assure your success. In addition, you will be working with other franchisees to compare operational procedures and new strategies along the way.
