October 06, 2017 // Franchising.com // GREENBELT, Md. - ZIPS Dry Cleaners - an aggressively expanding dry cleaning franchise known for its same-day, one-price business model - has again landed on Franchise Times magazine’s Top 200+ list, an annual ranking of the 500 largest franchise systems in the United States by global systemwide sales.
ZIPS was ranked #410 on the 2017 list.
“Our franchise growth has picked up serious momentum over the past couple of years and this recognition is a true testament to our continued focus on further establishing our category leading, highly profitable franchise opportunity,” said ZIPS CEO Reid Bechtle. “Franchise Times’ list of the industry’s top franchises is a trusted source and we couldn’t be more pleased to be included.”
Today, there are more than 50 ZIPS locations open and operating throughout the Mid-Atlantic and as far as Texas and California. The company also has a total active franchise pipeline that stands at more than 250 stores, all of which are slated to open over the next several years.
Driving the company's growth is an increase in interest from multi-unit franchisees, including ZDry LLC, whose partners have signed an area development agreement to build 110 locations throughout Southern California over the next 15 years. No strangers to franchising, ZDry’s partners also own and operate 10 Planet Fitness gyms in the Los Angeles area, with several more under development.
“ZIPS is quickly dominating an entire segment, and the customer loyalty to the brand made our decision to join the brand very enticing and easy,” said Shawn Bishop, one of ZDry’s managing partners. “It comes as no surprise that ZIPS would land on such a widely respected list. We couldn’t be more excited to be part of the family.”
