Eleanor and Andre Gelpi opened the first Swan Cleaners in 1937. It was a neighborhood store then, and that hasn't changed?only today, instead of just one family owned and operated location, there are numerous Swan Cleaners sprinkled around the greater Columbus area. Most of those offer same day dry cleaning and next day shirt laundering, and many even feature a drive-thru to help busy professionals and marathon runners get on with their days.
Inside each Swan Cleaners location, staff members utilize up-to-date dry-cleaning and pressing equipment to complete jobs thoroughly and efficiently. In fact, all of the company's staff members learn the craft and science behind fabric care through specialized training courses when they're hired. Beyond its own business practices, Swan Cleaners has also always been prudent about its impact on the community, which is why it still upholds its tradition of cleaning American flags for free as well as holding a title of certified environmental dry cleaner.
