Strategically Grow Your Business

One of the greatest benefits of the dry cleaning industry is how scalable the business can be. You can start by building your centralized environmentally friendly plant with a retail store. This facility will enable you to then build additional satellite stores - for a fraction of the initial cost - that can be strategically located within your territory and serviced by your plant. Or, you can begin at the lowest investment level by purchasing a territory without a brick and mortar store and build up a route that is serviced by a nearby Lapels plant.
