Classic Drycleaners & Laundromats

I made the decision to hire Sandra in late 2016 as we were beginning to move forward with a million-dollar plant renovation. We had visited Baryames Cleaners in Michigan and were so impressed with how smooth their operation flowed. Sandra came highly recommended by Art Baryames. 

What is unique about Sandra is that she started as a plant employee, like many of our own managers have. That gives her an instant connection with the managers as well as the plant employees she is advising. She truly understands the ins and outs of a drycleaning & laundry production plant.  She can speak to employees with a level of understanding that goes a long way. This helps her work side by side with our management team more effectively.  Sandra has become part of the Classic team and we look forward to each visit!  I highly recommend hiring Sandra if you are looking to improve quality, reduce labor hours, add new equipment, create smooth work flow, and strengthen the way your management team works with their staff.

Your assistance in creating and maintaining quality in my cleaners is a large part of my success and has allowed me the freedom to focus on the business aspects, not operations. Congratulations!!

Sandra quite simply is the best!  We have hired numerous consultants over
the years and none have approached the practical manner in which Sandra
addresses issues.  She is “hands-on”, in-depth and really gets to the root
of a problem.  Almost immediately she can sense the hot spots and more
importantly propose solutions.   If you need someone who has a down-to-earth
style and who your employees will like visiting your operation then Sandra
is your girl!

Thanks Again Sandra and we look forward to you coming back again soon.

Sandra has helped elevate our quality by training our supervisors and managers in the finer details of a quality dry cleaning operation. She has great observations and works well with all employees to get the job done.

I met Sandra several years ago at a Clean Show in Orlando.  After going to dinner with several friends and Sandra, I dont think I ever thought about having her come and service our plant.  To be honest, I dont even know if she did consulting work then. 🙂

A year or two later, it was time to get some on site training.  I can’t recall how I heard about Sandra, but we had her come in and do some in-plant training. Sandra helped us out tremendously!  She gave us suggestions on production, wetcleaning, dry cleaning, spotting, pressing, etc… you name it!  We also get points from DLI towards the Award of Excellence with her training. I think that our business, the oldest cleaners in N.C., since 1899, has truly benefited from having Sandra!

Every now and then i can all her up and say “hey” this is what i’ve got.  She always helps coach me through problems i may have.  Occasionaly i can send her a picture through my cell phone of certain things and she helps me with no problem.  No matter what questions i may have shes always available to help Vick’s Cleaners. With having Sandra’s training and knowledge on our side, it keeps our business pushing for Excellence for ourselves and our customers!

Thanks Sandy!

She is a walking encyclopedia on the dry cleaning industry. She helps us with our equipment to be sure it is being utilized to its full potential. She inspects everything from top to bottom and lets us know what is working and what needs fixed. She guides us in the area of OSHA / DEQ and what the requirements are on our machines, what forms, procedures that need attention etc.

One Cleaners – New Orleans, LA

Most consultants to the industry have high degrees of knowledge and skill sets. However not all can transfer these assets to the operators or line staff. Sandy has the unique ability to communicate on a level that people stay open to her suggestions resulting in improved performance. The proof of this is when employees are looking forward to her visits instead of dreading them.

Dutch Boy Cleaners – San Antonio, TX

She helped us with our work flow problems, helped improve our drycleaning quality and generally helped us tighten up our entire operation. Sandy can help any size cleaners become more efficient and more profitable.

LaFrance Cleaners – Youngstown, OH

Looking back over the past year, it is very rewarding to see our improvement and I am looking forward to our upcoming visits and the new ideas that we plan to implement.

Baryames Cleaners – Lansing, MI

I’m a bottom line kind of dry cleaner. I won’t invest money in things that don’t provide any return. I will tell you Sandra is an outstanding investment! First of all she is great with people and an excellent teacher. Secondly she knows what she is talking about so employees respect what she is telling them. She has visited my plant twice and each time my staff came away with valuable information and ideas that have significantly improved my quality and productivity. I now have her set up for 2 visits per year because i know it will give my cleaners a competitive edge in a time when we all can use one. Feel free to call me at 517-484-8900 x205 if you have questions about Sandra.

Contact Sandra today and find out how she can help your operation.
