  • Business Plan

    In the next 5 years we plan to further establish our brand as greater Charleston's best dry cleaners. We would like to increase our partnerships with corporate & military contracts, expand our delivery service and grow our locations. I created Sandy’s (Dry) Cleaners in 1998 after an extremely successful career as one of the first female engineers in the state. I decided time in town with my two children, and third on the way, was most important. I took my mechanical mindset and looked for local business endeavors that would align all my skills and needs, and Sandy’s was built. Nine years later as a newly single mom of three, I continued to grow Sandy’s while battling Stage II breast cancer. Sandy’s is more than a business it’s a representation of what women can overcome and achieve with the right support, mindset and dream. COVID-19 has greatly impacted our revenue as well as the community’s need for our services during this time of transition. Our staff has overcome and stepped up in ways we never thought possible including volunteering to work making approved masks during the shut down for local government agencies, manufacturers, plants and for individuals in the area. I want to continue to serve our community and employ my amazing staff.
