The dry cleaning industry as a whole is ready for a revolution. Most dry cleaners either can’t evolve to meet the needs of the modern consumer or aren’t ready to innovate to remain competitive. ZIPS® takes a different approach, creating a one-of-a-kind franchise opportunity that’s taken the industry by storm.
Instead of continuing to do things the old way, expecting busy customers to wait for days to get their garments back and using different pricing for every type of material, we’ve streamlined the entire concept of dry cleaning to offer a better experience for customers and a more attractive model for franchisees. Let’s look at just a few of the ways that ZIPS stands out in the dry cleaning industry.
One Low Price, Same-Day Guarantee
What are your biggest concerns when you take your clothes to the dry cleaner? For many consumers, those concerns include when you’re going to get your garments back and how much it’s going to cost. The time frame is usually measured in days and the cost can be a complicated equation that makes even math experts wince.
At ZIPS, we understand that simplifying the process helps create a dedicated customer base. It also boosts the efficiency of our locations, helping franchisees improve their businesses. We accomplish that streamlining by charging one low price for each garment brought in and by delivering on our “In by 9, out by 5” guarantee.
Any customer that drops off their items by 9am gets them back by 5pm on the same day. That’s a promise that we make to our customers, and it’s been a huge hit. It’s a big reason that customers continually choose ZIPS over the competition. They know that we take their busy schedules seriously.
When you become a ZIPS franchisee, you connect to a customer base that consistently chooses the efficiency of the ZIPS model over anyone else in the industry. With our one low price and our same-day guarantee, we’re giving customers the services they want at the rates they deserve, and the customers show their appreciation with repeat business.
Many dry cleaners ship out their items to a cleaning facility, clean them there, then ship them back and hand them to customers, many of whom don’t even know that their clothes ever left the shop. For mom-and-pop dry cleaners that approach could make sense, but to us it seems unnecessary.
ZIPS locations have on-site equipment, and they have a fully trained staff that handle garment cleaning as well as alterations and household item cleaning right there in the shop. That’s a part of how we’ve streamlined the industry and how we’re able to handle a higher volume of items at a faster rate than the competition.
For franchisees, that means your ZIPS locations can stay ahead of the game, delivering faster service to customers without the added expense of having to send items away to be cleaned. In an industry that’s all about volume and satisfied customers, on-site equipment is a game-changer.
Traditional dry cleaners can create a lot of waste in the form of plastic and paper materials. To us, that just didn’t make sense. ZIPS locations only use one plastic bag for every five items, saving you money, helping save the planet from plastic pollution, and saving customers the headache of having to deal with a mess of plastic. We even have a hanger recycling program to help keep hangers out of landfills.
Many dry cleaners have stuck to traditions that just don’t hold up to the needs of the modern consumer or the technology available today. With our one low price, same-day guarantee, on-site equipment, and commitment to being eco-friendly, ZIPS is making our mark as a one-of-a-kind dry cleaning franchise.
