Tide Cleaners, based in Cincinnati, Ohio, is a brick-and-mortar dry cleaning and laundry concept. Agile Pursuits Franchising, Inc., a subsidiary of Procter & Gamble, launched the first Tide Cleaners location in 2008. The company began franchising in 2011.
Sharbutt is the ultimate entrepreneur with more than 60 franchise locations across three brands in two states. Sharbutt and his partners opened their first Tide Cleaners in 2015. Since then, he’s built an empire with more than 50 locations across Texas and Colorado. Sharbutt’s latest venture is unique in that he saw a market to acquire and convert other dry cleaning brands, into Tide Cleaners.
“Not only are we excited about acquiring three Impressive Cleaners, but we are also thrilled to be helping out a family-owned and operated business,” Sharbutt said. “The father-son duo we conducted business with ran an incredible operation, and we are fortunate to have made a seamless transition into Tide Cleaners. By keeping the original locations intact, we are also serving the community with no disruption as we continue to remodel.”
In addition to the six additional locations currently under development, Sharbutt plans to open another 50+ Tide Cleaners across Colorado and Texas.
“We are thrilled to continue growing across the state of Colorado,” said Andrew Gibson, President of Tide Cleaners. “Acquiring and converting three dry cleaners to Tide Cleaners is no small feat. Justin and his team have worked tirelessly to make this deal happen, and we are here to help them continue to grow in Colorado.”
