Our History

Celebrating 85 Years of Excellence

As one of Maryland’s oldest dry cleaners, we provide you with the tradition of an established organization combined with the friendly service and quality you’d expect from a family owned business.

Built on a commitment to customer service, we are also one of the largest dry cleaners in the state with 12 locations and 5 FREE pick-up and delivery routes.

Owner, Whitney Kerridge, grew up with stories of her grandfather starting dry cleaning in Silver Spring, Maryland in 1932 as a route operation. Customary for those times, he started by picking up and delivering to customers’ homes.

In 1972, we moved our corporate headquarters to Taylor Avenue in Annapolis. Over the years, the business has evolved along with the industry, by acquiring more convenient locations for our customers and by expanding our services including drive-thrus.

As a family-owned business in our third generation, we understand that people are extremely busy these days. Free pick-up and delivery of your dry cleaning is just one less thing for you to do so you can spend more time with your family. That’s why we say, “Your front door is our best location.”

We believe a company that has flourished for 85 years understands how to deliver great service. In fact, we guarantee it!

We are truly grateful for your loyal patronage. Our entire team appreciates that the most valuable thing we deliver to you is trust.
