The Huntington Company Adds Pressed 4 Time to its Drycleaning and Laundry Services Franchise Network

Market Penetration Now Reaches 342 Locations

October 07, 2014 // Franchising.com // BERKLEY, Mich. – The Huntington Company, LLC, ("Huntington") a multi-concept franchisor located in Berkley, Mich., has added Pressed 4 Time to its group of franchise brands that provide textile restoration and drycleaning and laundry services. Pressed 4 Time is a drycleaning and laundry pick-up and delivery service with 46 franchises in 88 territories across the US.

"With the addition of Pressed 4 Time to our current portfolio of franchise brands, including 1-800-DryClean and bizzie, we are now the largest provider of mobile drycleaning and laundry services in North America," said Wayne Wudyka, CEO of Huntington.

The addition of Pressed 4 Time comes on the heels of the 2013 launch by Huntington of bizzie, a revolutionary drycleaning franchise concept that integrates mobile technology with a locker-based pick-up and delivery service to provide drycleaning and laundry services for tenants of office buildings and residential properties.

Pressed 4 Time also aligns with the offerings of 1-800-DryClean, the franchise system which provides a convenient, reliable and affordable drycleaning and laundry door-to-door pick-up and delivery service to neighborhood residents and office workers who are on the go and need to find ways to better manage their time.

"There will be a lot of synergy among these three franchise companies, and the addition of Pressed 4 Time will give us a larger market penetration and future franchise opportunities in areas of the U.S. where we haven't had a presence in the past," Wudyka said.

Greg Longe, president of bizzie, said that the addition of Pressed 4 Time is also a natural extension of Huntington's service philosophy.

"Our philosophy is to provide customers convenient, easy access to drycleaning, laundry and other textile services. Pressed 4 Time has that same focus and is a perfect fit for our Huntington ideology," Longe said.

Huntington's largest franchise brand is Certified Restoration Drycleaning Network, LLC ("CRDN"), founded by Wudyka in 2001. Serving the U.S., Canada and the U.K., CRDN restores garments and textiles damaged by fire, smoke, water and other contaminants. CRDN is the largest organization of textile restorers, with more than 150 franchises and sales in excess of $100 million. CRDN's franchisees include some of the largest and most prominent drycleaners in North America.
