WHY DRY CLEANING?

Today, there are more two-career families than ever before, and as a result there is a greater need for professional dry cleaning services. With less time and greater disposable income, working men and women are paying more for garment care to preserve their wardrobes and make them look their best. Your Lapels® Dry Cleaning Franchise provides you with many advantages:

  • Steady demand…not a fad or trend that will fade as quickly as it appears
  • Repeat business that grows with every new customer
  • Generally recession-proof
  • Can be run by a small, easily trained staff…no prior dry cleaning experience is necessary
  • Does not require any inventory
