Environmentally Friendly Dry Cleaning
$29,000 small business loan
On the Spot Dry Cleaners, Inc. was established in 2005 by Angel Feliciano with the intention of providing quality, environmentally friendly dry cleaning to the residents of the Pen Argyl, Wind Gap and Bangor areas. Typical dry cleaning machines clean clothing with a synthetic chlorinated hydrocarbon solvent known as perchloroethylene (perc) that is classified by the EPA as a toxic air and water contaminant. On the Spot Dry Cleaners cleans with a Firbimatic Saver SM machine, which uses certifiably organic hydrocarbon solvents that are far less threatening to humans and the environment. On the Spot Cleaners offer tailoring and alterations services at their second location in Mount Bethel. They also have arranged convenient drop-off sites within several laundromats throughout Bath, Mount Bethel, Wind Gap, and Stroudsburg.
The $29,000 loan from the Rising Tide Community Loan Fund was for accounts payable, building improvements, equipment and inventory.
