ZIPS Cleaners Bringing Same-Day, One-Price Dry Cleaning to Indianapolis
Opens First of Five Stores in Metro Area
INDIANAPOLIS, IN. – ZIPS Cleaners is officially coming to Indianapolis. The aggressively expanding dry cleaning franchise – known for its same-day, one-price business model – will open its first location February 4, 2019.
With a ribbon cutting ceremony scheduled for February 5th at 11 a.m., the new store will be located at 5025 East 82nd Street, Suite 300, and will be the first of five stores owned and operated by Indianapolis native Larry Frutkin and his wife, Emma. Their other stores will be conveniently located throughout the metro area, including Fishers, Carmel and downtown Indianapolis.
“There’s hardly anything more confusing than a dry cleaning bill. Until now, no one has ever been able to explain why different garments cost different prices. ZIPS has turned the industry on its head by charging the same low price for any dry cleaned garment, no matter what,” says Larry. “ZIPS is the future of dry cleaning, and we know that Indianapolis residents will appreciate our commitment to making and keeping quality dry cleaning services affordable at one low price.”
At ZIPS, a customer can have any item of clothing dry cleaned for $2.99. It doesn’t matter if the item is a pair of pants, a dress or a coat, the price is $2.99, 60 percent less than the national average. Garments are also cleaned on-site, allowing for same-day service.
“It’s easy to understand why an entree costs more than an appetizer at a restaurant or why getting a new transmission costs more than an oil change, but why should you pay more to dry clean a dress than a pair of pants when they’re both cleaned using the exact same process,” asks Emma.
In addition, in today’s increasingly “green-conscious” society, ZIPS is leading the way in new environmentally friendly practices, such as its use of recyclable plastic bags and hanger recycling program. ZIPS recycles thousands of hangers each year, uses 100% recyclable plastic bags, and focuses on continuing to reduce water usage and waste production.
“It’s an exciting time at ZIPS as we continue to expand our brand into new markets all across the country,” says ZIPS CEO Drew Ritger. “Indianapolis is yet another region that is primed for growth, and we couldn’t be more pleased about welcoming Larry and Emma as our newest franchisees. Their significant business experience and enthusiasm give them and ZIPS a terrific opportunity to improve the dry cleaning business in the area and pass along tremendous savings to local consumers.”
Today, ZIPS has more than 50 locations open and operating throughout the Mid-Atlantic and as far as Texas and California. The company also has a total active franchise pipeline that stands at more than 250 stores, all of which are slated to open over the next several years.
