Get to Know Us
At Milt & Edie’s Drycleaners, our goal is to make sure all our customers leave happy…ALWAYS! We want our customers to experience unbridled enthusiasm, unlimited possibilities, and exuberance beyond…Too much? Okay, but it is our mission to ensure our customers are always happy with our service.
Milt & Edie’s Drycleaners and Tailoring Center is one of the most successful retail cleaning and laundry businesses in the United States, perhaps in the world. Why? Because we care.
Milt Chortkoff had “cleaning solutions” in his blood!
More than 70 years ago Milt started working at Hollyway Laundry & Dry Cleaners, his father’s business in Echo Park. He came out of retirement in 1988 to consult with the owners of Regal Cleaners in Burbank and eventually purchased the business, renaming it Milt & Edie’s, a loving tribute to his wife of more than 60 years. Some pronounce it Eddie's, but as Milt would say, it's pronounced Eeeeedie's. With a spotless career running one of the most innovative, customer-service-based cleaning businesses in Los Angeles, Milt’s crowning achievement has been to make Milt & Edie’s Drycleaners & Tailoring Center to a 365 days per year operation!
What Makes Us Unique?
Milt & Edie’s is located in the heart of Burbank’s Media District, where we do things a little bit differently.
Walking into the cleaners with its bold magenta awnings, customers are immediately greeted by the aroma of freshly-popped popcorn (available all day and night) and a smiling maître d’ who directs them to one of nine counters. With every employee on call, there is virtually instant service, thereby nearly eliminating waiting in line. For the moments spent at Milt & Edie’s, customers are treated to music videos, free candy, and complimentary refreshments served throughout the day, including a wide assortment of beverages, cookies, snacks, and even hot dogs on Friday and Saturday afternoons. For anyone needing tailoring services, Milt & Edie’s is THE place to go as tailors are always available to provide expert alterations!
Founder’s Family Continuing the Tradition!
Milt & Edie’s Drycleaners is now run by the founder’s son-in-law and daughter, Michael and Beth Shader. Michael states, “We will continue to provide the experience and expertise customers, and entertainment industry studio clients expect when it comes to the care of their clothes, costumes and other textiles. They expect excellence and that’s what we’re all about.” Milt & Edie’s chooses to continue providing excellence as the gold standard and has found this to be of immense value to customers.
