By ZIPS Dry Cleaners | Monday, April 29, 2019

ZIPS Dry Cleaners - an aggressively expanding dry cleaning franchise known for its same-day, one-price business model - has named franchise industry veteran Sam Wong as its new Vice President of Franchise Sales and Development.

Armed with nearly 20 years of experience in the franchise space, Wong will be responsible for implementing new strategies and campaigns to further accelerate the brand's expansion momentum across key U.S. markets.

"Sam not only brings great franchise development experience and expertise to our leadership team, but has a proven track record of growth and success in each of his past roles," said ZIPS CEO Drew Ritger. "As we continue to execute our most aggressive franchise growth strategy to date, Sam's broad experience and wealth of knowledge will play an integral role in helping lead our brand into the next phase of its strategic growth and performance."

Prior to joining ZIPS, Wong worked as the Senior Director of Franchise Development at Sonic Drive-In where he led the more than 3,600-unit brand's expansion efforts in various new and existing markets nationwide. He also previously managed franchise development for such brands as Dairy Queen and Popeyes Louisiana Chicken.

"The opportunity to work with ZIPS at this stage of its growing franchise program is energizing," said Wong. "ZIPS is heavily focused on growth and this aligns with my own values and passion for franchising. I look forward to making significant contributions to the company's ambitious development plans and helping propel the brand far ahead of its competitors."

Wong's appointment comes at a monumental time for the budding franchise. Today, there are nearly 60 ZIPS stores open and operating in eight states, with a total active franchise pipeline that stands at more than 250 stores, all of which are slated to open over the next several years.
