Ryan Hames opens second Martinizing Cleaners at 6113 Maxtown Rd, Westerville, OH
Ryan Hames, the owner of Martinizing Cleaners Dry Cleaning in Westerville, OH, recently added his second Ohio location with the purchase of LA Cleaners, located at 6113 Maxtown Road in Westerville. This expansion makes a total of four Martinizing Cleaners locations owned and operated by the Hames family, all of which are GreenEarth® Affiliates.
Ryan’s family has been in the dry cleaning business since 1996 when his father, Dick Hames opened his first location at1177 N Hamilton Road in Gahanna, OH. Ryan’s brother Eric followed next, opening Martinizing Cleaners at 7348 Fodor Road in New Albany. Ryan opened his first Westerville location at 528 Polaris Parkway in 2004. The Polaris Parkway location was the Hames family’s first location to be designed around using GreenEarth ‘s Optimized Cleaning System from the start.
After seeing the benefits of Ryan’s investment in an environmentally non-toxic cleaning product, Eric moved to GreenEarth Cleaning for his New Albany location in 2015. In April 2022, after the landlord of the Gahanna location expressed the desire to protect his property and the environment by eliminating hazardous chemicals, Dick and store manager, Jennifer Hames decided it was time to make the move to GreenEarth Cleaning. They knew investing in GreenEarth was the only solution.
Additionally, all four Martinizing locations owned by the Hames family bring environmentally friendly cleaning right to people’s doors with home delivery services across the entire north end of Columbus, from Gahanna to Hilliard.
Ryan Hames’ new location in Westerville is open Monday through Friday, 7am to 7pm and Saturday, 9am to 5pm. For more information, visit www.martinizing.com/westerville.
