THE STAR BRITE STORY
In the spring of 1983, Star Brite Cleaners founders, Andy Kocher and Kelly Blake were students at Midwestern State University. Both were enrolled in an entrepreneurship class in dire need of a class project by midterm. When no other ideas seemed viable, they decided on a dry-cleaning business. After several months of hard work, resulting in the instructor giving them only a B in the class, (Admittedly, too much time was spent at fraternity parties) they decided to go ahead with their dream of owning their own business. That next fall, at the ripe age of 23, they opened their first store in Wichita Falls on October 1, 1983. Originally, they started as a National Dry Cleaning franchise. Later, they left the franchise and changed the name to Star Brite Cleaners.
A lot has changed since 1983. In 2003, Andy and Kelly sold the original five stores in Wichita Falls and have since opened five more stores in Austin, Texas. Since 2006, they have opened two more locations in Wichita Falls, Texas. Star Brite now sells its own franchise stores. There are now six additional franchisee stores located in Texas. Four additional locations in Austin and two locations in New Braunfels. After all of the changes, the Star Brite philosophy has remained the same. “Treat each customer as we would want to be treated and do the best job possible.” Anyone can be mediocre, but to us, it’s all about service and quality work at a fair price. All Star Brite locations are individually owned.
Advice about Dry Cleaning and Garment Care
Garments that are regularly dry cleaned last longer. Dirt, perspiration, and grit tend to wear out the fabric. Pressing a stained or soiled garment can permanently set the stain. Delaying having a stained garment cleaned can result in the stain becoming permanent and can attract insect damage like moth holes. Moths do not usually eat the fabric, they eat the food or beverage stained areas.
It is not recommended that home remedies such as hairspray, club soda, vinegar, etc be used to treat stains at home. Sometimes the stain may get removed but other problems can arise. Loss of color, additional staining, weakening of the fabric, or even setting of the original stain are very common. Sometimes it may look like the stain is gone and everything is just fine until the next cleaning.
Allow deodorants and hair products to dry before dressing. Do not let cologne, lotions and perfumes to come into contact with garments.
Always point out spots and stains to your dry cleaner. Identifying what the stain is, is half the battle in stain removal. Different stains require different techniques and stain removers.
Excessive perspiration can damage garments. Salt stains, discoloration, weakening of the fabric are common.
Star Brite has the expertise to evaluate each garment, fabric, and stain. Not all stains can be removed. But If the stain can be gotten out, we can do it. From Dry cleaning to wet cleaning we can do it all!
