About Tide Cleaners

Tide Cleaners offers a variety of dry cleaning and laundry services for consumers using multiple convenient formats. Customers can have their clothes picked up and delivered at their homes or offices, drop their items off at a store using the convenient drive-thru or 24/7 drop box, or even drop off and pick up in a secure locker. Convenience, quality, and care are the key components that make Tide Cleaners a success.

Tide Cleaners mission

The Tide Cleaners mission is to make caring for clothes so perfect and simple, that peoples’ lives don’t have to revolve around their laundry.

Who we are

Tide Cleaners is part of Procter & Gamble Company (P&G), a multinational company that specializes in health, personal care, and hygiene products. Headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, P&G operates in approximately 70 countries worldwide.

Tide® is part of the P&G family of fabric care products, and it is the backbone of Tide Cleaners. Tide is America’s number-one laundry detergent, and it has been a trusted brand for more than 75 years.

In 2008, Agile Pursuits Franchising, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of P&G, launched Tide Cleaners, a concept offering brick-and-mortar dry cleaning locations as well as delivery, 24/7 pick-up/drop-off, lockers, and even campus dry cleaning and laundry services. Tide Cleaners is headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, and has locations across the United States.

The Tide Cleaners experience

Our customers know and trust Tide Cleaners, and they return time and time again for the exceptional service and care. Tide Cleaners makes it easy and convenient for busy customers to take care of their laundry. We do the work, and they keep coming back.

Tide was born out of the belief that the future of laundry could be different than the present. A belief in “life, not laundry,” for the customer. The Bureau of Labor Statistics conducted a survey and found that the average American household spends over eight hours a week doing laundry. Tide Cleaners wants to give that time back to the customer by providing the best quality, convenience, and customer service. It’s not just the Tide Cleaners goal, it’s our reality. We are transforming the way people outsource their cleaning needs.


Franchise partners have a wide range of options when it comes to determining how to best serve their clientele. New franchisees must first open a Plant Store. A Plant Store helps establish a brand presence in your community. Owners can then begin delivery services and develop a variety of Plant and Drop store locations.

The care that keeps customers coming back

Tide Cleaners exclusively uses Tide Complete Care™ Hygienic Clean, a new detergent developed by a team with more than 100 years of research and development experience. The four-step cleaning experience combines our Tide Diamond Formula, color-safe bleach, Downy fabric conditioner, and proprietary whiteness-enhancing technology to deliver the cleanest clean ever.

Tide Cleaners franchise overview

Potential Tide Cleaners owners must be passionate about the communities in which they plan to serve. Tide Cleaners looks for franchise owners who are interested in being owner operators, have great people skills, believe in the Tide Cleaners brand, and have a strong understanding of how to manage financials. Previous business experience is strongly preferred for new Tide Cleaners owners, although this does not have to include experience in the laundry or dry cleaning services industry.

Investments vary by store format. Please visit our Investments & Requirements page for more detailed information.
