HANOVER, Mass. — Lapels Dry Cleaning recently announced the formation of a corporate/hospitality division. The new division was formed to better serve hotels, restaurants and corporate accounts that require and/or offer dry cleaning services for guests and staff, it notes.

“Several of our locations serve large corporate accounts like Intel, Google, Starwood Lodging and others,” says Kevin Dubois, CEO of Lapels Dry Cleaning.

“Our new corporate/hospitality division will serve as a resource for our franchise owners to better serve these types of clients.

“This includes providing the training and systems to serve corporate and hospitality customers as well as the marketing tools needed to attract corporate businesses, hotels and restaurants.”

The company’s new division equips each of its plant to serve restaurants, hotels and other guest-oriented businesses with its full range of dry cleaning offerings. This will include same-day and 24-hour dry cleaning, tailoring and more, the firm points out.

Lapels indicates it has, “pioneered an eco-friendly dry cleaning experience over the past dozen years,” Adding that there is no hazardous waste in their process.

“When you’re on the road and you want your clothes cleaned, you’re not necessarily thinking of the long-term effect on your clothes,” says Dubois.

“All our locations serving corporate accounts use GreenEarth® solutions,” he adds. “Consequently, our cleaning process has no odor and is gentler on clothes, thus lengthening the life of clothes. That’s a comforting thought for business travelers.”

The company writes that it has same-day service and pickup after 5 p.m., and also “offers a ‘car hop’ service where customers can drop off and pickup their clothing without ever leaving their cars.
