  • KATHLEEN RAZMUS

    Director of Store Profitability

    Kathleen Razmus is the ZIPS Director of Store Profitability. She undoubtedly knows what it takes to optimize store profits from an operational standpoint because she’s been in the dry cleaning industry for more than 30 years.

    Kathleen works closely with the Operations Team to train brand-new franchisees on the dos and don’ts that may affect their store’s performance. She spends most of her workday inside ZIPS locations, analyzing each store’s operational processes. She uses her findings to identify areas of strength and areas in need of improvement. And with her expertise, it’s safe to say her consultation is indispensable to the growth of each franchisee’s business.

    The Virginia Tech alumna says one of her favorite parts about working at ZIPS is sharing the knowledge she’s gained as a former dry cleaning business owner with people who are eager to learn. However, she’s more than a garment care expert. Outside of ZIPS, Kathleen spends much of her free time rehabbing and flipping homes.
