New Dry Cleaning Service Goes Online

Requesting dry cleaning services can now be a mouse click away.

"How cool is that?" Kellye Price, customer, said.

Then just drop your dirty clothes into a laundry bag, and a Cleaning Co. van comes to pick it up from your front porch. Then the clothes go to the cleaner, where the cleaning begins. Pickup and delivery from your home or office at no extra charge. It's all part of an innovative service that's brand new to Tyler: The Cleaning Co.

"Being able to go online and give them my name and my address and the time that I'd like things to be picked up, that's so awesome to be able to do that," Price said.

Price is a mother of three, so the drive-thru service means the kids can stay in the backseat. But after hearing about the online option, Price can just stay at home.

"You don't even have to get dressed," Price said. "You don't have to put your makeup on."

Patti Mehling developed this new concept in dry cleaning after traveling the world in search of new ideas: "We don't feel like because we're in Tyler, TX, that we are behind New York City. We have a fun logo, a fun group of people, dressed with fun T-shirts, and excited about taking care of customers."

That's what The Cleaning Co. calls the "Red Hanger Difference." The Cleaning Co. has three locations in Tyler and plans to open two more, one in Tyler and one in Chandler. If you'd like to find the cleaner nearest you, go to the homepage and click on the "Know More on 7" icon. There you can find a link to The Cleaning Co.'s website.
