Dry cleaning chain ZIPS opens 110 new stores in 15 years

Last year ZIPS signed a franchise agreement with Los Angeles-based ZDry LLC to develop the brand throughout Southern California. Beginning of May the Greenbelt (MD) based company opened the first new store.

Founded in 1996, ZIPS currently operates more than 40 stores and now is actively seeking multi-unit franchisees to help develop additional locations throughout the United States. Intention is to open 110 new stores over the next 15 years.

ZIPS charges a flat $2.29 per garment whether it’s a wedding dress or a necktie, and promotes a sustainable operation. Garments are cleaned in a closed-cleaning system that reduces waste, biodegradable plastic bags are used and hangers are recycled.
