A little about the owners and growth:
Okotoks and High River:
Gordon and Sarah Lee: Gordon has worked in the drycleaning industry since 1998.
In 2003, Gordon and Sarah Lee purchased High River Dry Cleaners and moved into town with their first child only a few months old! In 2005, they expanded their business by purchasing Okotoks Cleaners and opening a third location to operate under the name of Tower Cleaners in Okotoks. Their expansion included a partnership with Gordon’s good friend and former employer, Tony Stephen, (the owner of “Tower Cleaners” based in Calgary).
In 2010, Gordon and Sarah bought Tony’s portion of the company leaving them the sole owners of the three storefronts in High River and Okotoks.
They have fallen in love with the foothills area and still reside in High River having now grown to a family with 5 beautiful children!
As the company continues to grow, a name change to Foothills Cleaners has facilitated the need to unify the company and begin a new brand that better represents the area and communities operated in.
April 2013: Gordon and his brother Jason Lee went into partnership and bought existing Scrub a Dub Cleaners and Coin Laundry in Medicine Hat. Jason has made the Hat his new home and operates the day-to-day business there.
The business will soon boast the name of its parent company: Foothills Cleaners. Jason has worked in the industry since 2005 and loves it! Since the acquisition Jason has lived in beautiful Medicine Hat!
June 2014: Foothills Cleaners opened a second storefront in Medicine Hat to meet the demand for service on the north side.
2013: Foothills Cleaners expanded their pick-up and delivery route services to include Lethbridge, Cardston, Raymond, Fort MacLeod, and Magrath.
January 2014: Bought Park Neilson Drycleaners. (Soon to be re-branded as Foothills Cleaners)
August 2014: Bought Heritage Fine Drycleaning. (Soon to be re-branded as Foothills Cleaners). Sophie Avila manages operations in Lethbridge as co-owner with the Lee’s.
Sophie has worked in the company since 2008 and has become very skilled in the trade. She and her familiy are thrilled to now call Lethbridge their home!
