I am a dry cleaner from Chicago, who has visited plants all over the country. More recently, I've been investigating environmentally friendly dry cleaning processes so that I can convert my own operation, and I was told that I simply must go see Prestige Cleaning Center in MN.
Joe and Tad, the 2nd and 3rd generation dry cleaners who own the operation, invited to observe this plant, and I have to say that I was so thoroughly impressed that I am coming back to Chicago with the intent of modeling my own cleaning systems after what they do here.
The first thing that struck me was the professionalism - everyone was in uniform, I was greeted at the counter by friendly smiling faces. Next, I was introduced to Joe and Tad, who immediately took me through their plant. As someone who has seen many operations, I can tell you that these guys are doing things right. They have everything covered - from the top notch equipment, to the proper stain removing agents, to (most importantly) the experienced staff. I believe they have staff that have been there for decades.
I took some difficult items with me (i.e. - clothes with difficult stains to remove), and on every piece they did an amazing job. My hope is that I can eventually train my staff to do the job that these guys do.
Bottom line, if you are looking for an outstanding cleaner in Minneapolis, look no further - Prestige Cleaning Center should be your dry cleaner.
Pros: Expert cleaning, dedicated staff, environmentally friendly
