We are a group of dedicated professionals who set out to reinvent the dry cleaning experience.
The CD One Price Cleaners concept is the result of nearly 30 years of industry experience—applied with sophisticated business and process knowledge, techniques, and discipline to create unrivaled quality and customer satisfaction.
Our story is about the pursuit of a better way. It began in 1984 with our founders’ first jobs in the dry cleaning industry in Houston, Texas, and continued when we moved to the Chicago area in 2001 to start an all-new business. Since that time, we’ve worked in virtually every aspect of dry cleaning, from site selection and store design to dry clean operations, equipment refurbishment and distribution, with a vision to create a ground-breaking business model. We’ve fulfilled that vision with today’s CD One Price Cleaners, a thriving franchise operation with 36 stores and a unique value proposition in the Chicagoland area. Now it’s time to grow. We’re expanding our presence to new markets in the Midwest.
