Zips Dry Cleaners




ZIPS Dry Cleaners Franchise Information:

Join ZIPS®, the dry cleaning opportunity that boasts nearly $1.5 million in Average Gross Sales*. How do we do it? We offer customers high-quality care for their clothing at the incredible price of just $1.99 per garment, PLUS same day service.

No wonder ZIPS is the smart choice for so many people.


Other cleaners can charge up to five times as much and make you wait days for your clothes. So it's no wonder that customer demand is fueling our impressive growth.

No one can match our model.

The ZIPS difference is our efficient technology-based system powered by our state-of-the-art equipment. It allows our franchisees to handle tremendous volume efficiently and effectively, and maintain solid margins for our services. In addition to this streamlined technology, you don't have to worry about managing inventory or receivables – simplifying your day-to-day operations.

No one matches our experience.

The people who own ZIPS are owners themselves, operating one, if not more, ZIPS Dry Cleaners locations! Their expertise and support will be invaluable to you as a ZIPS franchisee. Our franchisees come from all walks of life, with backgrounds in finance, technology, the military, aeronautics, construction and more. And because ZIPS locations are not open Sundays or holidays, our franchisees enjoy the rewarding lifestyle that comes with business ownership.

No one matches our support.
