Lapels Dry Cleaning


Earth Friendly Plant ~ Combine a retail store with your own plant to process your garments & those of other stores. In some areas we have Lapels stores anxiously awaiting your opening. And the best part is that you are operating an environmentally friendly dry cleaning plant.

This is better for you, your employees, your customers and your landlord.

Multi Unit ~ The Lapels Multi Unit Program is designed to enable the serious investor to dominate an exclusive geographic territory by building a main processing plant and one or more satellite stores and a delivery route. This program will guarantee consistency in quality and service throughout your territory beginning in the main processing plant. Additionally you will be able to offer a home delivery service throughout your territory, seek out major corporate accounts by offering an employee benefit and perform guest services for hotels.

All of our programs consist of territory configuration or site selection, layout and design, point of sale system with proprietary software, equipment, installation, signage, supplies, marketing and training.
