As a young family of five, growing up with a single mother, we can't remember a time we would come home and not see our mother hand-ironing shirts and blouses for other people in order to earn extra income. We would open the refrigerator to look for something cold to drink and there was always a big plastic bag, full of damp shirts, waiting to be ironed.
Our mother was able to make ends meet by ironing shirts. She also showed us how hard work and attention to details would help us in our future endeavors. I guess one could say, "we were destined to be in the dry cleaning and laundry business!"
Newport Cleaners was opened in January of 1995 at our first store on Burt Road. We have grown to five stores and our main processing plant because of our customers.
We are a family-run business, with my wife, three sons, two of my brothers and a woman my wife says, might as well be our adopted daughter! All are holding important positions within our company.
We are ALL involved with the daily activities of our business, which is "Taking care of All Your Dry Cleaning and Laundry Needs."
