HANOVER, Mass. — Lapels Dry Cleaning recently opened two dry cleaning stores in Arizona’s East Valley, in Gilbert and Ahwatukee, and is opening a third store in Chandler this month. The stores are locally owned and operated by Gilbert residents Jeff and Tanya Kline.
“We are delighted to bring Lapels’ standard of high-quality dry cleaning and superior customer service to our friends, neighbors and fellow East Valley residents,” says Jeff Kline.
Prior to opening the Lapels stores, he worked as an aerospace engineer. Tanya Kline continues her work as a homemaker and active community volunteer (the couple has two children), in addition to her role in their new business..
“There were so many reasons why we chose to purchase a Lapels franchise,” says Tanya Kline. “The environmental piece was certainly up there on our list, but it was an overall commitment to a high-quality customer experience that truly sold us.”
Lapels uses the latest technology in equipment and cleaning solutions, and produces no hazardous waste in its dry cleaning process, the company says.
Each Lapels stores offers a full slate of services, including same-day dry cleaning; shirt service; tailoring; shoe repair; wedding gown preservation; suede and leather processing; box storage; and fur storage.
“We want to congratulate Jeff and Tanya on joining the Lapels Dry Cleaning family, and we look forward to an ongoing relationship as we continue to provide guidance and support at the corporate level to help ensure the success of their new dry cleaning stores in the East Valley,” says Lapels Dry Cleaning CEO Kevin Dubois.
