ZIPS Dry Cleaners Recognized as ‘Best Dry Cleaner of Baltimore’
August 08, 2018 // Franchising.com // GREENBELT, Md. - ZIPS Dry Cleaners in Baltimore, Maryland, which currently has 17 locations open and operating in Baltimore, has been named the best dry cleaner in Baltimore.
Published annually by Baltimore magazine, the “Best of Baltimore” contest is one of the most anticipated events of the year, at which time their readers are asked to vote for their favorite businesses and community members for a job well done in 96 different categories, including categories in arts and culture, food and drink, lifestyle and home, outdoors and sports, and news and media.
“Being recognized as the best dry cleaner proves that our loyal customers can see dry cleaning the ZIPS way,” said ZIPS’ CEO Drew Ritger. “We strive to be a brand that people know and love, and it’s amazing to see that our customers see our vision.”
With its first Baltimore area location opening in 1997, ZIPS’ success lies in its same-day, one-price model. A customer can have any item of clothing dry cleaned for $2.29. It doesn’t matter if the item is a necktie, a wedding dress or a pair of pants, the price is $2.29, half the industry average. In addition, garments are cleaned on-site, allowing for same-day service.
“Dry cleaning is not a new concept, dry cleaning the ZIPS way, is,” said Ritger. “Our hope is to continue serving the Baltimore community and communities around the country as we continue to expand.”
In today’s increasingly “green-conscious" society, ZIPS also uses a closed-cleaning system that reduces waste, uses biodegradable plastic bags and recycles hangers.
According to Ritger, 2018 is lining up to be the company’s most successful year yet. He expects the dry cleaning chain to capitalize on the past year’s momentum and add as many as 14 stores in new and existing markets.
