June 24, 2013 // Franchising.com // Oklahoma, OK and Hanover, MA - Lapels Dry Cleaning, an innovative, environmentally friendly dry cleaning company headquartered in Hanover, Massachusetts, will open a new location on June 22 in Oklahoma City at 13801 North Bryant Avenue. The OKC location represents the first Lapels Dry Cleaning location in the state of Oklahoma.
The new Lapels Dry Cleaning store is owned and operated by Brian and Stacey Culver. Store hours are Monday through Friday, 7 am to 7 pm; Saturday 8 am to 5 pm; and Sunday, 12 pm to 3 pm. The grand opening for the new Lapels will be held on July 20.
“We are delighted to bring Lapels’ standard of high quality dry cleaning and superior customer service to OKC,” said Brian Culver, who lives with his wife Stacey and their four children in Logan County.
A graduate of the University of Richmond, Culver had served as a helicopter pilot in the Navy, including combat stints in the Persian Gulf before entering civilian life and working for Country Financial. After growing up as a “military brat” and living that same life, Brian and Stacey opted for a little more control of their destiny by owning their own business.
“There are a number of franchises out there that offer discounts for veterans, but we wanted to make sure we selected a business that was right for us and our family. Since I have some background with restaurants and Stacey’s background is in retail, we looked at some restaurants and some other dry cleaners. Lapels struck us as a young and growing company that does things a little differently and is constantly looking for ways to improve and innovate,” said Brian.
Lapels has pioneered its eco-friendly dry cleaning experience for the past 10 years. Using the latest technology in equipment and cleaning solution, Lapels is one of the few dry cleaners in the greater OKC area able to boast that there is no hazardous waste in their process. Their environmentally-friendly cleaning process has no odor and is gentler on clothes, thus lengthening the life of clothes. At Lapels you can see, feel and smell the difference.
Lapels customers are greeted to a warm and inviting reception area, with friendly customer service representatives, and a full service on-site tailor.
“We want to congratulate Brian on blazing the trail for Lapels Dry Cleaning to enter the state of Oklahoma. We look forward to continuing our support at the corporate level to help ensure the success of this Lapels Dry Cleaning and perhaps future stores down the road,” remarked Lapels Dry Cleaning CEO Kevin Dubois.
