1-800-DryClean Franchise Announces Positive Results From Its "We Miss You Call Program"

January 25, 2010 // Franchising.com // Shannon Toler-New, president 1-800-DryClean franchise, recently announced positive results from the leading dry-clean delivery service franchise's "We Miss You Call Program."

"In November we introduced this program where home-office support staffers call franchisee customers who for whatever reason have dropped our free pick up and delivery dry-clean service," said Toler-New. "We found that 85% of the people we talked to still considered themselves satisfied customers they just became less frequent users over the casual-dress summer months. By calling, 12% immediately put our signature bags on their front doors."

The purpose of the "We Miss You Call Program" is fourfold: 1) to maintain the dry-clean delivery franchise's relationships with its customers, 2) to provide a platform for customers to voice possible complaints, 3) to support busy owners with another level of customer service, and 4) to encourage customers to use the company's high quality dry-clean service.

"We are working with our 1-800-DryClean franchise owners to ensure that all our customers are satisfied and they regularly use our service," added Toler-New. "It wasn't that customers were unhappy with us. It was a matter of reconnecting and reinforcing our quality of service."

Cathy Diallo, 1-800-DryClean franchise owner in Richmond, Virginia, participated in the program and reported that of the 34 customers who were contacted, 12 immediately scheduled pick ups. "This program is a great example of corporate working with franchisees to increase sales and to build the system," said Diallo. "Katie (Haverty from the 1-800-DryClean home office) was awesome. We've been in contact throughout, e-mailing and calling, and it's made a big difference in my business."

"We were named an AllBusiness AllStar franchise for 2009," said Toler-New. "Helping franchise owners realize their dreams of financial security and lifestyle rewards are reasons we're thriving even in a down economy."
