Clean Brands, the largest dry cleaning and laundry company on the planet and franchisor for Martinizing Cleaners, announced an agreement with Sergio and Tanya Said to open a new location in Spring, Texas in 2024. The Saids, originally from Mexico, represent Clean Brands first Martinizing Cleaners franchise owners via the E2 visa program.

The E-2 visa program is a non-immigrant visa option for foreign nationals who wish to invest a substantial amount of capital in a U.S. business and develop and manage it. 

The Saids were longtime business owners in Mexico and recently sold a textile business they owned and operated for the past 37 years. Sergio, 66, and Tanya, 64, worked with GB Global International, an integral consulting firm for legal, immigration and business solutions, and the Martinizing Cleaners leadership team to negotiate a deal and find a location for the store.

“We’re delighted to announce Sergio and Tanya as new Martinizing Cleaners owners,” said John Powers, vice president of franchise development for Martinizing Cleaners. “Their experience as business owners and their enthusiasm to start a business in their new home America is truly inspirational.

“Many Martinizing Cleaners franchise owners have no experience as cleaners. What they do possess are certain characteristics that make them teachable.
