History

Lapels Dry Cleaning was founded in 2000 to become the 1st Environmentally Friendly Dry Cleaning franchise available. At the time being environmentally friendly was just gaining traction but Lapels saw the Future of Dry Cleaning early on and since has not only been the leader in this space as we continue to define the future of this great industry.

But why Lapels? Of all of the Dry Cleaning Franchises out there the biggest reason is the name itself. We have spent 2 decades building equity into our brand. We are fully committed to being environmentally friendly and sustainable. This has benefits beyond just helping the planet. Consumers increasingly want “Green” alternatives, especially from their dry cleaner.

Training And Support

Our training and support is at the heart of our successful franchise operation. Our hands-on training takes place in a Lapels approved training location as well as our Corporate office, where you meet the corporate team - who have over 70 years combined of dry cleaning and franchising experience - and learn how to use the tools we have in place in order to run a successful business. Training takes place prior to your business opening, as your business is opening, and continues as we learn new tactics.
