Solving the ever-annoying issue of dry cleaning, Dashlock in New York City is an industry-changing innovative business that puts customers' needs first.

Addressing issues of picking up and dropping off clothing, this dry cleaning operation works by adopting lockers as an integral part of its business. To drop off garments, customers register online, then visit a store to put their goods in a locker. Once cleaned, which is typically done 24 hours after a garment in dropped off, the customer receives a text message informing them that their clothing is ready. The best part of the pick-up process, however, is that the clothing can be picked up at any time from the Dashlock lockers.

Sure to be a huge influence in the industry and already spreading around the US, this is a remarkably clever solution to a seemingly inevitable problem.
