The Lapels Conversion program works 2 ways.
- If you are an investor and prefer to have cash flow from day 1 without having to build from scratch. Once you become a Lapels franchisee, our team will assist you in the search for independent dry cleaning operations for sale and then collaborate to vet out the opportunity and decide whether purchasing this business and converting to a Lapels makes sense. We look for opportunities to grow the revenue by adding the Lapels program with our conveniences, technology, sustainability, customer engagement and more.
- If you are an existing independent dry cleaner and are looking to make changes to your current business model. Lapels will bring the national brand and over 20-year experience of dry cleaning knowledge and expertise to assist your conversion to our proven system of success. You can rebrand or convert your current Dry Cleaning business into a Lapels franchise. This allows you to still own the same Dry Cleaning business, but you get to benefit from the Lapels brand name, our effective methods, and environmentally friendly technology.
Going it alone is difficult in any business and especially the Dry Cleaning business. So much of Dry Cleaning is based on trust: people have to trust you with their important and often expensive garments. By owning a brand name that has built a solid reputation in the industry helps to build that trust and gain long term relationships. That is why owning a Dry Cleaning franchise is usually preferable to owning an independent Dry Cleaning business.
Owning a Dry Cleaning business is desirable for many. Dry Cleaning is a steady business that carries a large customer base and is relatively recession proof. If you want to be a part of our national brand, now is a great time to buy and own a Lapels Cleaners business.
