Whether its the shirt off your back or the floor beneath your feet, Zoots can make it spotless. The company offers laundry and dry cleaning services through about 15 stores in Massachusetts and one in Rhode Island. It also cleans carpet, tile, furniture, and upholstery, and provides water damage restoration services (including mildew removal and mold – more... remediation). Zoots offers delivery service to residences and businesses in states where it operates cleaning facilities as well as New Hampshire. Recognized as a green cleaner, it doesn't work with perchloroethylene, a carcinogen typically used in the process. The firm was founded in 1998 by ex-CEO Todd Krasnow and Tom Stemberg, both former Staples executives.

Today Zoots cleans a fraction of the suits it once did. Before selling most of its assets in 2008 to satisfy its creditors, the company operated 75 stores and delivery routes from Massachusetts to Virginia. It had aspirations to expand into a nationwide chain but encountered some irremovable problems. The departure of the CEO during a fundraising campaign, along with credit tightening and a shrinking market, were all contributing factors to the company's failure to reach its goals. In 2008 Zoots sold its largest New England segment and the rights to the Zoots name regionally to Rick Simoneau and Trish O'Leary, who had been VPs there. Other locations, including Connecticut, New Hampshire, New Jersey, and Virginia, were either sold off or closed. – less
