Overview

ZIPS Dry Cleaners

AN UNBELIEVABLE BUSINESS MODEL
OUR HIGH-VALUE PROPOSITION IS A NO-BRAINER TO OUR CUSTOMERS AND THE REASON BEHIND A HIGH-VOLUME DEMAND FOR OUR SERVICES.

ZIPS Dry Cleaners is known for our same-day, one-price business model. We charge just $2.49 or less per garment – that’s 60 percent less than the industry average – and make good on an “in by 9, out by 5” promise every day.

Entrepreneur Rated ZIPS the #1 Dry Cleaner Franchise in 2018. And that’s not just because of our impressive $1.1 million average unit volume (FDD 2018) and four revenue streams.

See why multi-unit and multi-concept franchisees are claiming exclusive DMAS, and fast.¬

BUSINESS WITH LITTLE-TO-NO COMPETITION 
Franchising with ZIPS Dry Cleaners means no barrier to entry. Here’s why: 98 percent of the highly fragmented dry cleaning industry is made up of single-store operators who pale in comparison to ZIPS Dry Cleaners.

Our mom-and-pop competitors don’t have the resources to keep up with our unbeatable price structure, high-volume demand, perfected operational systems or high-end branding materials.

On-site cleaning means we prefer cleaning our garments on-site to minimize chances for lost or damaged clothing. We provide better quality service faster than our competitors, too.

Streamlining every task from customer check-in and check-out to sorting and tagging simplifies day-to-day operations for everyone – customers, employees and franchisees.

ACCOUNTING MADE EASY
Our franchisees never have to chase down money and have less overhead to worry about than other franchise concepts.

  • No receivables
  • No disposable goods
  • Low variable costs

SUPPORT THAT'S SECOND TO NONE

We also give franchisees access to an easy-to-use digital platform with a full library of customizable marketing materials.

Plus, our highly engaged Home Office team is readily available throughout every franchisees’ journey, ensuring everyone stays on track with production and profit goals.

ZIPS franchisees also have a strong and unified voice through a Franchisee Advisory Council.

“The systems that ZIPS has in play are great. It allows us to run the same no matter how busy we are. If you follow that system that they have in place for the garments and for each section in the back, you can’t mess it up.”Beth Flynn , Multi-Unit Franchisee
