ZIPS Dry Clean­ers to open Wal­dorf store soon

Maryland Independent - - Business -

ZIPS Dry Clean­ers, a dry clean­ing fran­chise known for its same-day, one-price busi­ness model, has signed an­other area devel­op­ment deal – this time for nine stores through­out Mary­land.

The first store will open in Wal­dorf in Novem­ber.

“Our rep­u­ta­tion in the fran­chise in­dus­try con­tin­ues to grow and this most re­cent sign­ing is ev­i­dence that more and more peo­ple are tak­ing no­tice of the great multi-unit op­por­tu­nity that ex­ists with the ZIPS fam­ily,” Aaron Gold­berg, vice pres­i­dent of devel­op­ment for ZIPS said in a news re­lease. He noted that the brand has signed three deals to­tal­ing 223 stores in the last 12 months alone.

The nine Mar yland stores will be owned and op­er­ated by an equity group led by Mo­men­tum Ad­vi­sors, a mi­nor­ity-owned in­vest­ment ad­vi­sory firm, Iron­stone Part­ners, a real es­tate devel­op­ment firm, and A&M Hold­ings. The stores will be lo­cated through­out Bal­ti­more, Charles, Mont­gomery and Prince Ge­orge’s coun­ties.

“Dry clean­ing is not a new con­cept; dry clean­ing the ZIPS way, is. It’s sim­ply pro­fes­sional, same-day clean­ing at an un­beat­able price. It doesn’t mat­ter if the cloth­ing item is a neck­tie, a wed­ding dress or a pair of pants, the price is $2.29,” Tif­fany Hawkins of Mo­men­tum Ad­vi­sors said in the re­lease.

ZIPS re­duces waste by us­ing or­ganic dry clean­ing so­lu­tion and of­fer­ing hanger and bag re­cy­cling at ev­ery lo­ca­tion, ac­cord­ing to the re­lease.

The Wal­dorf store will be at 2875 Crain High­way, ac­cord­ing to the firm’s web­site.
