Value Drycleaners of America partners with Mulberry Garment Care

Value Drycleaners of America LLC (VDA), the company that franchises the ZIPS Cleaners brand, announced recently it has become the exclusive developer of Mulberrys Garment Care franchise locations throughout the U.S. Mulberrys has 13 locations across San Francisco and Minneapolis. This agreement will expand the brand into new markets — initially in the Baltimore/ Washington D.C. region.

Members of the ZIPS corporate team will now support existing ZIPS and Mulberrys franchisees in opening and operating new locations, while courting additional investors to join the ZIPS/Mulberrys family. Mulberrys’ founder dan Miller is continuing as an advisor to VDA and operator of existing Mulberrys locations in San Francisco.

“Both of these brands meet a need in the market and combined, provide excellent options for both consumers and franchisees,” he said.

“The garment care industry is growing and changing as consumer preferences, demographics, and lifestyles are shifting. This partnership allows us to offer franchise opportunities that can be customized for each geographic area to meet the needs and preferences of consumers in these regions,” said Bob Barry, president/CEO of VDA, Gemini Brands and ZIPS.
