One Price Dry Cleaners
When Jasmine opened One Price Dry Cleaning a few years ago, she was new to the business. An avid thrift shopper, she realized she was spending more money on getting clothes cleaned than on the items themselves. This predicament inspired her to open One Price. She developed a model where all items cost the same price to clean, no matter the size, length, or material. Fellows at this store wanted to increase the business’s visibility and foot traffic. They helped Jasmine transform the look of the store and implement a referral program.
