January 18, 2017 // Franchising.com // HANOVER, MA - Lapels Dry Cleaning, an innovative, environmentally friendly dry cleaning company headquartered in Hanover, Massachusetts, was recently named to Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500 for 2017. In addition to ranking in Entrepreneur’s Top 500, Lapels Dry Cleaning improved it’s rank from last year, rising from number 340 to number 311.
“Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top 500 represents the best of the best and we are honored to be steadily growing up the list,” said Kevin Dubois, CEO of Lapels and co-author of Entrepreneurial Insanity in the Dry Cleaning Business. “We are extremely proud of our franchise partners throughout the country that have helped us in growing this wonderful brand and we’re looking forward to be growing domestically and in other countries in 2017.”
Part of that improvement includes the establishment of a development agent model to further accelerate its growth strategy throughout the United States.
The Lapels Dry Cleaning development agent program requires an initial $25,000 sign-on fee and a commitment to construct a dry cleaning plant that will also have a retail front. With the support of Lapels corporate real estate and development staff, development agents could then begin marketing and selling both hub-and-spokes (dry cleaning plant and satellite stores), dry cleaning plants, or individual satellite stores.
In addition to its new DA program, Lapels continues to fine tune its eco-friendly dry cleaning experience over the past 10-plus years. Using the latest technology in equipment and cleaning solution, Lapels is one of the few dry cleaners around to be able to boast that there is no hazardous waste in their process.
