Submit your renovation or new design: online entries now being accepted

CHICAGO — Have you invested in renovations, equipment upgrades, or an entirely new plant for your drycleaning business? The 56th Annual American Drycleaner Plant Design Awards may be your opportunity to enter your project and earn some much-deserved recognition, says Editor Tim Burke.

Every year, the magazine honors the best new plants and renovation projects, recognizing them for appearance, efficiency, convenience, and comfort.

American Drycleaner is now accepting entries via online form HERE to find the next Grand Prize Winner in its annual competition. Deadline to enter is Friday, Oct. 14.

Burke advises dry cleaners to fill out the form completely and upload a layout (blueprint or sketch) and several photos (300 dpi digital files are preferred, but color photos will also suffice) that show off the features that make their drycleaning plant an excellent place to do business.

“Include any information you believe is relevant to the way your plant’s design attracts customers and fulfills your production needs,” Burke says. “The more detailed the entry, the better! But you have to enter to have a chance to win.”

One dry cleaner will join previous winners Peerless Cleaners, Fort Wayne, Ind.; Wooven, Pompano Beach, Fla.; and Corona Del Mar (CDM) Cleaners, Newport Beach, Calif.; at the pinnacle of the industry.

Entries are subject to verification. Contact Burke at 312-361-1684, [email protected], with questions or to confirm that your entry was received.
