Dry cleaner in Chicago puts buttons on for you!


Drive-Cleaning is one of our first registered SWWAN vendors. Thanks to Mike Bleier, founder and president, who spent enough years of his own trying to get to the dry cleaners when he needed to, Chicago residents can now get their dry cleaning and laundry picked up and delivered for no extra charge.

And that’s really great. But listen to this: Drive Cleaning will also fix your clothes and replace buttons for you! Now how’s that for a service that SWWANs can use?

In business since 2004, Drive Cleaning offers personalized service by phone or you can place your request for pickup through their website. You can arrange your first pickup and give them a key to your outside door. They’ll provide a big bag to put your stuff in; then they hang your clothes on a door hook they provide you.

Mike sees a rosy future for his concept. He says in 6 months or so they plan to start picking up and repairing shoes and handbags! Too cool. He also says he thinks this is going to be a perfect business for franchising–all it takes is some brains, a van, the Drive Cleaning plan, and a lot of elbow grease.

Mike is offering SWWAN members 20% off on their first order! Thanks, Mike.
