ZIPS Dry Cleaners Franchise Opportunity


I’m not new in business. I was a Burger King franchisee for about 30 years. I was selling this business and looking for another franchise opportunity. I chose ZIPS strictly because of the financial numbers.

My units are performing well and we’re really happy with the results we’re getting. Our first location broke even within the second month of us being open.

The Real Deal!

ZIPS started out as eight separate dry cleaners in the Baltimore-Washington, D.C. area. In 2002, the stores united with the goal of providing a revolutionary dry cleaning experience that maintains high-quality services at one low price for any garment. Since then, ZIPS has expanded to over 50 locations across the country. We clean over 25 million garments for more than 500,000 customers every year, and we look forward to serving more customers every day!

Our Franchise Model

It's tough to compete with our one-price, same-day business model. We have six revenue sources all at unbeatable prices: dry cleaning, Laundry By ZIPS, Pressed Laundry, tailor services, household goods and business to business. Not only do we clean up to four times the garments a traditional dry cleaner gets through every day, but we do it faster, too. Plus, we offer our customers an exceptionally efficient yet memorable experience. Altogether, it's a concept our customers can't get enough of -- and thanks to our decades of experience in garment care -- one our franchisees can easily replicate.

  • The ZIPS Difference
  • The difference is our passion for providing high-quality dry cleaning at unbelievably low prices. We've streamlined every part of the dry cleaning process, cutting costs and cleaning times to provide the best possible service at the best possible price.
  • Unbeatable Price Point
  • Get Any Garment Dry Cleaned for $2.49
  • Same Day Promise
  • Get your dry cleaning to us before 9am, we'll have it back to you the same day by 5pm at the latest. Garments dropped off after 9am will be ready by 5pm the very next day. And we'll email you if it's done earlier, because time is money and we intend to save you a lot of both

Average Unit Volume of Mature Store $1.2 Million Annually
