Lapels® Dry Cleaning has been ranked in Entrepreneur's 26th Annual FRANCHISE 500!

"After many years of working for someone else in sales and in advertising I felt it was time to take control of my own future and open a business that would benefit me and my family. When the time arrived, I decided I wanted a business that had low up front costs and virtually no inventory to carry. The Lapel's Dry Cleaning concept was one that appealed immediately to me. I am happy that I joined the Lapel's Family. I would wholeheartedly recommend a lapel's Franchise opportunity to anyone I know who's looking for a career change and hands on support from the Franchise company."
