December 01, 2016 // Franchising.com // HANOVER, MA - Lapels Dry Cleaning, an innovative, environmentally friendly dry cleaning company based out of Hanover, Mass., recently announced Greg Toppi as its new vice president of real estate and construction. In this role, Toppi will work with new franchise owners to find suitable locations for their Lapels Dry Cleaning plant and/or stores and to facilitate the build-out of those locations.
“We are excited to have Greg aboard to add additional resources to our Franchise Owners as they come on board with the Lapels Franchise system,” said Kevin Dubois CEO, of Lapels Dry Cleaning. “Greg will help transition franchise owners from the time they sign an agreement until the day the store opens. He brings with him a wealth of industry knowledge on finding locations, negotiating the best terms for that space and the entire build-out process.”
Prior to Lapels Dry Cleaning, Toppi held a similar role with KoKo Fit Clubs, overseeing construction operations for 130 fitness clubs across the United States.
“The construction industry has been trending towards sustainability and green construction for the past several years and I’ve been a big proponent of that. This opportunity with Lapels is a continuation of that with a company that completely embraces the green concept,” said Toppi.
A licensed construction supervisor and real estate professional, Toppi has worked in the construction industry for more than 20 years. Married, he resides with his wife Gena and their two children in Marshfield.
Lapels has pioneered its eco-friendly dry cleaning experience over the past dozen years. Part of that effort includes a partnership agreement with GreenEarth®, the dry cleaning industry’s only environmentally non-toxic cleaning alternative. Using these kinds of solutions and the latest technology in equipment, Lapels is one of the few dry cleaners 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.
