GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. — MyDoor Dry Cleaning and 24/7 Dry Cleaners announced that they will begin offering trade-name license agreements to qualified buyers throughout North America.
"This is a great opportunity for entrepreneurial-minded people to fulfill their dream of owning and operating their own business, without the red tape of bureaucracy often associated with franchising," Dame says. "We offer complete turn-key operations with top brands in both delivery and retail drycleaning."
MyDoor launched in Colorado in 2004 as a delivery-only enterprise, and has since grown to 14 units. The 24/7 brand targets "traditional" drycleaning customers who prefer to drop off and pick up their garments from retail stores located in high-traffic areas. The two brands' revenues exceeded $5 million in 2009.
The license includes the use of the trade names, as well as the company's business and marketing systems. The company says that the license offers operators a superior business model with no royalties, fewer restrictions, and a superior image designed to attract high-income customers.
"We've learned over the years that when people are sold a solid turn-key business, over time these franchisees truly need less support in both the mobile and retail side," says John Dame, the founder and CEO of the two brands. "Why should they continue to pay royalties for something they really no longer need to use to be successful?"
