GREENBELT, Md. — ZIPS Dry Cleaners, a franchise with 26 East Coast locations, announced a new partnership with Hot Dish Advertising, an advertising agency specializing in the franchise industry.
“Over the past 12 months, we have aligned ourselves with some of the best and brightest people in the franchise industry,” says Andy Cucchiara, vice president of franchise operations at ZIPS. “Our agreement with Hot Dish will assist us in reaching new potential franchisees and support our rapid expansion. We have more than 150 years of combined drycleaning experience, and we have created processes that ensure prompt service at a fixed price.
