DURHAM, N.C., (June 20, 2024) — Clean Brands™, LLC, the largest dry cleaning and laundry company in the world and franchisor for Lapels® Cleaners, has announced its newest location in North Carolina, Lapels Cleaners of Durham.

The company is owned and operated by Sukhjiwan Singh – also known as Jay – a U.S. Army veteran and experienced businessman who is now opening his second Lapels Cleaning location in the Research Triangle.

Located at 8128 Renaissance Pkwy #112 in Durham, Singh and his staff will provide Southpoint and surrounding neighborhoods with professional dry cleaning services at their storefront, along with pick-up and delivery service directly to their doorsteps. Singh and his staff are happy to help from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM on Saturdays and 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM during the week.

Singh is an entrepreneur through and through, moving on to his fifth business venture. With a diverse background in entrepreneurship, he has owned and managed several businesses, including a salon, a convenience store, a motel, and a Lapels Cleaners in Cary. Now, Singh is excited to embark on his latest endeavor as the owner of a second Lapels Cleaners.

“I am thrilled to open my second Lapels location here in Durham,” said Singh. “In Cary, I had the pleasure of building strong relationships with my customers and getting to know them like family. I am eager to bring that same level of personal service and community spirit to our new Durham location. Our customers in Durham can expect the same dedication and care that has been the foundation of our success.”

With multiple weekly pickup and delivery routes, nearby residents have convenient access to a wide array of professional garment care services. These services include but are not limited to dry cleaning, shirt laundry, alterations, wash & fold, bulk laundry, leather cleaning, wedding gown cleaning, wedding gown preservation, and comforter cleaning.
In addition to a superior product and service, Lapels Cleaners locations utilize environmentally 100% non-toxic cleaning solutions and processes provided by GreenEarth® Cleaning, which is also celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2024. Using GreenEarth’s solutions and the latest technology in equipment, Lapels Cleaners is one of the few dry cleaners able to claim there is no hazardous waste in their process.
