This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.

When Dee and Shana Taylor bought Continental Cleaners in 1995, located at 902 S. 900 East in Salt Lake City, unbeknownst to them, they bought into one of the hottest real estate markets in Salt Lake City. Today, 23 years later, this dry-cleaning business remains in a prime location in the thriving 9th and 9th area, as one of the founding businesses, since the previous owner opened there in the early 70s.

Continental Cleaners offers professional and personal dry-cleaning service. It’s still a family-owned and operated business because Dee and Shana come in every day and are passing the business on to their children, Michael and Hillary Taylor, with a team of 12 employees. They’ve watched the area expand and have grown right along with it. Continental Cleaners is so well respected, they have clients come from Park City to bring dry cleaning to them, and they serve the Hilton, Marriott and the Radisson hotels as well as the Eccles Theatre.

In talking to Michael Taylor about the origins of Continental Cleaners, we discovered it was established in 1894 in the Avenues and although it’s changed locations and owners a few times, it’s been in Continental Cleaners since its founding, making this a legacy Utah business.
