New Women-Owned Franchise Serving the Greater New York Area

November 07, 2014 // // NEW YORK – Fabric Restoration Service Team, Inc. (FRSTeam), the leading national provider of fabric restoration services, today announced the addition of its 57th franchise, FRSTeam of Greater New York based in the Bronx. The newest location will service the Bronx, Nassau, Suffolk, Kings, New York, Queens, Richmond and Westchester counties and their surrounding areas. This marks FRSTeam's fourth franchise opening in 2014, capping off a year of growth for the family-owned company.

FRSTeam of Greater New York is owned and operated by Wayne Edelman, Marleen Cohen and Merritt Edelman. It is registered as a Minority and Women Business Enterprise (MWBE) and specializes in textile restoration and professional cleaning services. Collectively, the co-owners bring more than 70 years of experience in the restoration and professional dry cleaning industries. The franchise has a central facility and three additional satellite stores in the Bronx, where the partners operated the stores independently for the past eight years.

"FRSTeam has an incredible reputation in the insurance and dry cleaning industries," said FRSTeam of Greater New York Co-Owner Wayne Edelman, whose family has been in the cleaning industry in New York for over 60 years. "We love the challenge of restoring items to their original grandeur and have worked hard to achieve national recognition. Our partnership is a perfect marriage and we look forward to operating under the FRSTeam brand."

Now focused on servicing the local area, FRSTeam of Greater New York has had past experience providing restoration services to clients nationwide for carriers with high-net-worth client claims. Its processing facility boasts multiple high-tech cleaning processes and devices to facilitate the most difficult restorations including items deemed unsalvageable by other companies. The partners work closely with one another along with their network of 45 employees to provide exceptional service.

"FRSTeam of Greater New York is a wonderful addition to our growing organization," said FRSTeam President Jim Nicholas. "Wayne, Marleen and Merritt bring tremendous experience across multiple fronts and, most importantly, take pride in what they do, which is at the foundation of the FRSTeam philosophy."
