Though Jeff Kline had a comfortable job as an aerospace engineer, he had a hunch that he possessed all the traits of a successful small-business owner. With the support of his wife Tanya, he put his theory to the test with a Lapels Dry Cleaning franchise, which has quickly spawned multiple locations.
The Klines remain ever-present behind the counter at Lapels, overseeing 24-hour drop-off services, same-day dry-cleaning turnaround, and sundry garment-cleaning services.
