Lapels® Dry Cleaning offers three different program options:
Environmentally Friendly Dry Cleaning Plant - Combining our boutique retail store and your own full service plant offers you more income and more services to offer your clients.
Multi-unit Program - Perfect for the savvy investor who understands the merits of the dry cleaning industry, this opportunity allows you to service multiple retail stores from one processing plant.
Satellite (Drop Off/Pickup) Store - With our satellite stores you can offer your customers all the services of a Lapels dry cleaning store without the overhead of the processing plant.
Whichever program is right for you there are many benefits of owning a Lapels franchise:
- Buying power that allows you to purchase supplies at a low cost
- Attention and respect earned by being part of a branded professional image
- A proven business model
- The ability to be a part of committees that have a say in decisions affecting your business

- Has no odor
- Is non-toxic to the environment and breaks down naturally
- Is gentle on clothes – Feel, smell, and see the difference
- Is safe to use
Our stores also use energy conserving LED lights in our signage and we recycle hangers and plastic garment bags
Training and Support
With a Lapels® franchise you are in business for yourself but not by yourself. All Lapels franchisees receive extensive training and ongoing support:
- Full time computer software technical support
- Open lines of communication with Lapels corporate personnel
- Periodic seminars, meetings, and training sessions with other Lapels franchisees
We're looking for franchise owners who are outgoing and have sales, marketing, and/or management experience, and who are results oriented. A person who can build relationships, lead a team, and who has the motivation to excel! We are especially looking for owners who understand the value of a customer and can follow our proven programs. Our most successful franchisees will seek to eventually build the hub and spokes model although individual unit owners can do quite well.
