Martinizing is one of the most well-known and longest-running dry cleaning brands in the United States. The company has been in existence since 1949, with locations throughout the world. As of 2014, expansion opportunities exist through franchising, so aspiring entrepreneurs can run their own Martinizing store.
Martinizing maintains a strong reputation for quality dry cleaning service, and franchisees collectively serve millions of customers each day. The original name of the company was One Hour Martinizing, which denoted the business' emphasis on rapid dry-cleaning service. While the company has seen steady growth in franchisees since 2000, its number of US locations has dropped sharply.
