Lapels Dry Cleaning Launches International Division

February 13, 2013 // // HANOVER, MA - Environmentally friendly dry cleaning methods, outrageous customer service and marketing are the foundation upon which Lapels Dry Cleaning has built its franchise in the U.S. With its recent announcement of an international division, Lapels is looking to bring those signature services abroad.

“I believe there are markets outside the United States that will be as strong, if not stronger, because of the lack of quality competition and the importance of quality garments and the care of those garments,” said Michael Eisner, Director of Franchise Development for Lapels Dry Cleaning. “Over the years, we have been inundated with requests for franchising from overseas.”

“Being able to have your garments cleaned in an affordable and timely fashion that doesn’t negatively impact the environment is something that’s appreciated everywhere, not just in the U.S.,” said Kevin Dubois, CEO of Lapels Dry Cleaning. “With this new division, we are currently speaking with Franchise Partners from across the world and anticipate opening our first store within 2013” added Dubois.

Lapels has pioneered its eco-friendly dry cleaning experience over the past 10 years. Lapels is committed to using the most advanced environmental practices and technologies not only in the manner in which they clean clothes but also in the build of their Stores and Plants. Their environmentally-friendly cleaning process has no odor, breaks down naturally and is gentler on clothes, thus lengthening the life of clothes. At Lapels you can see, feel and smell the difference.

In addition to its high standards for cleaning, Lapels stores are committed members of the communities they serve. Lapels Dry Cleaning stores have spearheaded recycling drives for coat hangers and selling the metal ones for scrap, then donating the proceeds to local food pantries. Lapels has also been involved with clothing drives for Big Brother and Big Sister Associations.

“With the expansion overseas, we anticipate our franchise owners abroad will also be looking for ways to give back,” said Dubois. “It’s just part of who we are.”
