America’s Best Cleaners Celebrates 20th Anniversary

Milestone was marked at live affiliate meeting and reception

LAS VEGAS — America’s Best Cleaners (ABC), a certification and consultation agency, celebrated its 20th anniversary earlier this month with its first live affiliate meeting and reception in two years.

“It’s hard to believe America’s Best Cleaners has been in operation for 20 years already,” says ABC Executive Director Chris White. “We are so fortunate to have such amazing affiliates, partners, and supporters of our mission for the last two decades. As the world of fashion continues to change, we look forward to doing the same with innovative and sustainable practices as we continue our mission of ‘Ensuring the Best Brands are Cared for by the Best Hands.’”

The meeting was held on the eve of Fabricare 2021, an educational conference hosted by the California Cleaner’s Association in Las Vegas. Because of the pandemic, last year’s affiliate meeting took place online; gathering in person was something that many in attendance said they were eager to do again.

“Since I am new to ABC (I joined one month prior to COVID-19) and never had the opportunity to meet fellow members or attend a bi-annual event, it was a great experience to hear and to learn from my fellow ABC professionals on new marketing ideas,” says President of Sir Galloway Cleaners Mary Mills. “ABC is filled with knowledgeable, experienced, and brilliant Dry Cleaners that are professional and willing to assist each other. What an honor it is to be included as a member of ABC and to be able to share successes.”

“The energy at the ABC Sessions in Las Vegas was phenomenal,” says Mulberrys Minnesota Owner Chris Brooks. “You could feel the desire to improve and find new routes to revenue. We came home with amazing ideas from our peers and the ABC leadership did an incredible job.”

After the meeting, ABC executives and members celebrated at Panevino Ristorante to celebrate the organization’s 20thanniversary.

“As a longtime affiliate of ABC, I can say with confidence that my participation in the affiliate meetings is always a beneficial experience for me,” says President of Embassy Cleaners Andrew Rivkin. “The ability to spend quality time with some of the industry’s best and brightest operators provides me with insight and knowledge that I find extremely valuable.”
