Purchased in 1968 by Karoly and Pat Godo, Avon Cleaners began as a 4-person operation with a single residential route. The previous owner stayed on for 2 years to teach Karoly about the business. For the next 8 years the Godos successfully worked on expanding Avon Cleaners Then, in 1978, Avon purchased Miracle Mile Cleaners, the competitor on the next block. This gave Avon control over shirt production and the opportunity to further expand. Then in 1986 Avon grew even more by opening its doors on Saturday. Today Avon operates 2 retatil locations in Dallas and remains under the operation of the Godo family. As Dallas-Fort Worth's premier dry cleaner, Avon Cleaners strives to be at the forefront of the dry cleaning business. That is why Avon has been a part of many of the leading industry associations to not only keep up with the best practices within the industry, but also in a leadership role to be a valuable resource to others.
