Zips Cleaners, a nationally expanding chain of nearly 70 locations, annouced that it will add two new locations in Washington, DC, by the end of next year, which would double its presence in that market.
KV Management, LLC, which operates two Zips loca¬tions already in the district, as well as two in Fairfax, VA, and another in Sterling, VA, has issued letters of intent to occupy two spaces in the central district region.
The first is slated to open in the first quarter of 2023, while the other is expected to debut in the third quarter of next year. That will bring the total number of locations run by KV Management’s partners Brett Vago and Kyo Kim to seven. The two are also founders of the Zips brand.
Vago and Kim own the rights to develop the entire District of Columbia area and say they may open additional locations there in the future.
In addition, they have signed a development agree¬ment to expand their presence in Loudoun County in partner-ship with Carlos Cadenas, a fellow Zips founder and a multi-unit Zips owner in northern Virginia.
“We are very excited to be providing more convenience and easier access to res¬idents and workers in the District,” said Vago. “Between these new locations and the system ad¬vancements Zips has under¬way, we are making it easier than ever for customers to get their belongings to us, have them professionally cleaned and get them back quckly for comparatively little cost.”
Zips Cleaners provides con¬sumer and commercial gar¬ment care centered around low-cost, in-by-9-out-by-5 drycleaning, as well as Wash N Fold laundry, pressed laundry, alterations and cleaning of household items. For more in¬formation, visit them online at www.321zips.com.
