Our history

1934 - Bernard Butler


Bernie founded Hudson Cleaners in 1934 when his side business of taking in dry cleaning began to make more money than being a barber.

1934 - Orignal Plant


The corner of Hudson and Cleveland Ave. was the site of the main plant for almost 50 years.

1934 - Delivery


An early influence on the current delivery business, Hudson Cleaners also offered free delivery service to northeast Columbus.

1981 - Discovery


Brian Butler helps scout out the new plant location in 1981. We’re the first on the Southeast corner of Sawmill and I-270.

1982 - Ground Breaking


The footers are dug and poured. We are right on schedule to be open in March 1982!

1983 - Grand Opening


We’re open for business. Right from the beginning volume grows as business pours in……

1985 - Working Hard


Jim and Jimmy Jr. keep the machines running all day long. Everywhere you look this is a ‘family’ business.

1986 - Getting Involved


In every way, Dubin Cleaners and the employees participate in community events. Remember the three lane bridge in old Dublin? More about us in the community.

1987 - Giving Back


Philanthropy becomes a large part of the company mission. We give back to Dublin and N.W. Columbus, the community responsible for our success.

1990 - Our First Year


The sun sets on our successful first year. Bob Evans, Bank One, and the Dublin AMC Theatre are still a long time away from developing Tuller Rd.

1992 - New Locations


In order to better serve NW Columbus we expand to Linworth, S. Dubin, and many more.

1992 - More Space


The ’80s and ’90s saw more than five additions and renovations to our plant.

1992 - New Equipment


Before the building is finished, employees train on new state of the art laundry equipment. This is the first of many new equipment upgrades.

1993 - Prestigious Aware


Dublin recognizes Margaret and Greg as Business Persons of the Year. They are recognized with this great honor for growing the business leaps and bounds along with strong community support.

1994 - New Corporate Offices


In 1994 growth caused another construction project. New office suites, board room, and major additions to the delivery receiving area make much more space at the plant.

1995 - Delivery Business


Another investment pays off with great vision. Offering free home and office delivery fills trucks on six routes a week.

1996 - Progress So Far


…for now at least. This is the current look of our corporate buiding, at least until we outgrow it again.
