Where have you come from and how did you get to where you are now?
I started working in the back of a dry cleaners a very long time ago, learning every little thing I could about the business, the customers and the industry. I soaked up every little bit of that and promised to own my own one day (smiles) and here we are now!

I pushed myself to get as much first hand experience from the industry as I could and I wanted to continue to build the knowledge I had because I knew I’d have to be an expert to have my own Kensington dry cleaners and I wanted to prove to myself that I could do it.

I’ve been dry cleaning for a decade.

To be a successful dry cleaner I believe you have to have great customer service, it’s all about the customer. Secondly, you have to provide a great service… you have to be in demand and the quality of that service has to to be high in order to be successful. All these things will build a good rapport with the customer and will ensure they come back to to you but this won’t happen without dedication to the customer and a focus on quality.

I love overcoming challenging orders like tough stains and delicate materials. I love the reaction on the customer’s face when they receive their laundry.
