A Chat with American Cleaners
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We are a full-service cleaners. Our company has expanded to five locations: two in Kingston, one in West Hurley, one in Red Hook, and one in Rhinebeck, NY. We have always been family-owned and operated. In our third generation, dry cleaning is in our blood.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
As earlier stated, I am the third generation in my family. I was born into this service. I love to work with the people, and I enjoy seeing them out and about knowing that their suits and other garments look so nice because my family took special care of them.
What do you love most about your job?
I love being blue collar. There isn’t a day that goes by that I wish I were an office guy. I love to succeed and speak with the customers over a job well done.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
“You guys always take care of me. You see me pull in, and have my clothing waiting for me when I walk through the door. That’s service!”
