Legaći Superior Dry Cleaning and Laundry Services is a female owned and managed company founded in 2005 with several interests. In 2008, it streamlined these interests to focus exclusively on laundry and dry cleaning services. For three years thereafter, it operated under the Pressed in Time brand. On expanding and setting strategic goals, Legaći moved away from Pressed in Time to form Legaći Dry Cleaners and Laundry Services.
The business operates three laundromats and dry cleaning outlets and an industrial plant. It has strategic alliances with international institutions such as the Wedding Gown Association and the Dry Clean and Laundry Institute.
The business needed financial and quality management systems and stronger branding. There was a shortage of equipment, and stock and money were often stolen.
The small business assessment tool (SBAT) and a critical planning exercise (CPE) Indicated a need for promotional tools, followed by implementation of a financial management system.
An Incentive application for equipment was lodged with the Seda Technology Transfer Fund. A quality management system (QMS) was developed and Seda assisted in developing marketing tools to heighten brand visibility. A management system was developed to control all the business’ financial affairs.
