Our newest initiatives

Group Fox is leading the Chicago market in green initiatives. We are pleased to share that most recently six of our buildings have installed tankless water heaters at as part of our “renovate green” plan. A tankless water heater is an energy-efficient water heating system that heats water only when it’s needed thereby reducing usage fluctuation and saving up to 40% in energy costs.

If you’re looking for a great Chicago dry cleaners, your search can stop here.

The Greener Cleaner is not just one of the best dry cleaners in Chicago, (we were previously voted best dry cleaner by Chicago Reader !) we are also true pioneers in the industry, becoming the very first green dry cleaners in Chicago.

Back in 1995, before ‘being green’ was the thing to be, we became the very first dry cleaning company in the United States to offer 100% Wet Cleaning.

Wet Cleaning is a 100% safe alternative to the harsh chemicals like Perc that most dry cleaners in Chicago use. In fact, 2012 statistics show that 99.3% of dry cleaners in Chicago and IL use petroleum based cleaning products. That means we’re part of the select group of just 0.7% of cleaners who offer a true alternative to harsh chemical cleaning!

These services are currently available at 215 E. Chestnut and 401 W. Fullerton!
 


Our 215 Chestnut building is the only Chicago rental building with a Mitsubishi City Multi Unit cooling and heating system.
