Tide Rises in Naples

NAPLES, Fla. — Consolidated Cleaners, Inc., in partnership with Agile Pursuits Franchising, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Procter & Gamble (P&G), recently opened a second Tide Dry Cleaners store here, it reports.

“We are proud to open our second location in Naples, and to continue expanding our services across South Florida,” says Robert Lyons, president of Consolidated Cleaners, Inc.

Located in the heart of Naples, the new location is managed by Joyce Simmons, who brings over four years of customer service experience from the cleaners store in North Naples, it writes.

This will be the seventh Tide Dry Cleaners location for locally-owned Consolidated Cleaners, Inc. The firm currently operates in North Naples, Bonita Springs, Fort Myers, Boca Raton, Parkland and the Wellington/Royal Palm Beach community.

“Each Tide Dry Cleaners site brings something unique to the market,” Lyons relates, “and we look forward to sharing an unrivaled level of customer service and environmentally-conscious cleaning with even more guests in Collier County.”

In conjunction with GreenEarth® Cleaning and Tide® fabric care, it notes, the new central Naples store upholds the company’s tradition of excellence and advanced cleaning technology care customers expect at the other locations in South Florida.

The new multi-use building includes a drive-thru valet and the firm’s 24-hour pick-up and drop-off services, it points out, complete with kiosk and drop-box to ensure customer convenience is a top priority.

“We are delighted to see the franchise continue to grow in South Florida, and congratulate Consolidated Cleaners, Inc. for bringing Tide’s brick and mortar extension to this flourishing community,” says Thomas Flaherty, president and CEO, Agile Pursuits Franchising, Inc.

“We applaud Robert, Joyce and their team, and join in the celebration of the opening of their latest location,” Flaherty adds.

For over 75 years, Tide® laundry detergent has been caring for the clothes of American families, the firm writes, adding “the cleaners is an innovative extension of its brand.”
