A True Turn-key Business
Our CEO, Bob Devaney, whose vision was to make the dry cleaning industry available to the average person, pioneered the "owner behind the counter" concept in 1985. Like many traditional dry cleaners he had expanded his dry cleaning business by opening drop stores in surrounding areas. As he opened more and more stores he became increasingly adept at finding solid locations and developing effective marketing and operational techniques. He has personally helped to open over 40 stores since then.

William Carey, a marketing specialist with over 30 years of retail and advertising experience, joined Bob and as a team they have worked to improve their concept by including a professional marketing plan, increasing support and training and reducing costs by eliminating all franchise royalties. Together they have created a unique business system that could be taught to anyone, even someone that had never been in the business before!

All Cleaner Spot stores are independently operated dry cleaning outlets that combine old-fashioned customer service with modern dry cleaning methods. Our owners truly become the neighborhood dry cleaner by establishing long-term relationships with their customers. No one will ever care more about his customers or his business than the owner.


Our concept of "the owner behind the counter" has several powerful advantages that most other cleaners cannot compete with.

  1. Quality Each of our owners personally inspect each garment for perfection. If an item does not meet the high standards we guarantee our customers then it is returned and re-processed at no charge.
  2. Customer Service Who will ever care more than the owner? Our owners naturally provide the best customer service available because they care the most. Other dry cleaners depend on employees to handle the most important aspect of their businesscustomer service.
  3. Franchise Power When you combine great quality and unsurpassed customer service with the power of a national franchise you create a win win situation.
