Martinizing Cleaners Opens in Saltillo, MS
Clean Franchise Brands (CFB), the largest dry cleaning and laundry company on the planet, recently announced the opening of a Martinizing Cleaners at 103 Town Creek Drive, Saltillo, MS. Martinizing Cleaners of Saltillo is owned and operated by Gregg Kennedy and his wife Margaret Ann. The Tupelo, MS residents converted the former Town Creek Drycleaning and Laundry into a Martinizing in July 2023.
Martinizing Cleaners of Saltillo represents the third Martinizing Cleaners for Kennedy. He also owns and operates Martinizing Cleaners locations in Tupelo, MS at: 603 West Main Street and 1196 West Main Street. Kennedy took over those two locations in 1990, buying the business from his in-laws, Margaret Ann’s parents, Bert and Jo Ann Frazier.
“One of the reasons I bought the two Martinizing locations back in 1990 was Martinizing’s unique way of cleaning and dry cleaning clothes. I thought it was appropriate for a unique city like Tupelo—birthplace of Elvis and a vibrant music scene,” said Kennedy. “Thirty years later, the Martinizing brand is stronger than ever. So it was a complete no-brainer to convert this location to a Martinizing Cleaners to bring the Martinizing brand to even more people in the greater Tupelo area.”
Kennedy’s father-in-law opened his Martinizing Cleaners locations in 1958. In fact, the two Tupelo locations still proudly boast the original Martinizing signs. With the third location, the Kennedy’s now employ 27 people.
Martinizing Cleaners offers a wide array of cleaning services, including but not limited to: dry cleaning, shirt laundry, alterations, wash & fold, bulk laundry, leather cleaning, wedding gown cleaning and wedding gown preservation; and comforter cleaning.
