Tide Cleaners’ Innovative Dry-Cleaning Store Design

At Tide Cleaners, our dry-cleaning store design reflects our commitment to innovation and unparalleled customer service. Here's what makes our locations special.

Life, Not Laundry

The United States laundry and dry-cleaning industry market size is expected to reach $14.4 billion by 2028, with an estimated CAGR of 4 percent from now until then. The sustainability of the industry speaks to its essential nature in the lives of people everywhere. However, not all dry cleaners are created equal, and models that rise to meet the changing needs and lifestyles of their clientele are positioned to clean out the competition.

Above all, Tide Cleaners believes in providing our guests with quality, convenience, and unparalleled customer service. By changing the way people outsource their cleaning needs, we are transforming how they engage in their daily lives. The dry-cleaning store design of each Tide Cleaners location optimizes traffic flow, appeals to key demographics, and enhances site specifications and capabilities to meet the needs and lifestyles of both customers and franchise owners within any given community.

Destination: Innovation

When Tide Cleaners began franchising in 2010, we started with a trusted name and an innovative dry-cleaning store design with three unique points of differentiation: 24-hour access to drop off and pick up clothes, double-lane drive-thrus for efficiency and convenience, and all the proprietary services that make Tide Cleaners the most trusted name in cleaning services.

Tide Cleaners guests and franchisees benefit from the Tide level of perfection and innovation at every level of the dry-cleaning experience. Since our inception, Tide Cleaners continues to innovate its locations and offerings to provide the best dry-cleaning experience in the industry. Even before COVID-19, Tide Cleaners was on the cutting edge with delivery and contactless features to benefit customers and franchisees alike.

Tide Cleaners offers franchise owners a wide range of dry-cleaning shop design options when it comes to determining how best to serve their clientele. All franchisees start with a Plant Store, which helps establish a lasting presence in your community. From there, owners can expand delivery services and a variety of other capabilities, including the potential to expand to multiple locations.

Plant Stores typically range in size from 2,800 to 3,200 square feet, housing all of the cutting-edge equipment required for processing garments to the high Tide Cleaners standard. These locations also provide customers the opportunity to drop off dry cleaning and laundry in person with curbside and drive-thru capabilities. They can also have one-on-one interactions with Tide Cleaners professionals who are eager to address any questions or concerns they may have about their cleaning needs.

Once establishing a Plant Store and forming connections within the community, franchisees can open Drop Stores, which range between 1,200 to 1,400 square feet in size, designed to serve as additional offshoots that provide further convenience for customers and an enriched investment for owners.

Tide Cleaners has also developed the innovative Locker Drop Store design, a location that allows clients to drop off and pick up their laundry through a secure locker system any time of day or night. Through an intuitive and easy-to-navigate smartphone application, clients can place and track their cleaning orders to fit their own needs and schedules 24/7, making this the perfect dry-cleaning and laundry solution for students, busy professionals, travelers, and anyone else who wants to rely on the Tide Cleaners professionals to efficiently handle their cleaning needs.

Tide Cleaners: A Design For The Future

With innovative dry-cleaning shop designs, Tide Cleaners appeals to a new generation of clientele across all demographics. By utilizing cutting-edge technology, environmentally friendly dry-cleaning, and modeling our locations to fit the needs and lifestyles of our communities, Tide Cleaners presents a winning opportunity for prospective franchise owners eager to partner with a trusted cleaning brand.
