More Than 100 Years of Excellence

Kean’s Fine Dry Cleaning was founded in 1900 by John Selvy and Frank H. Kearn. Since their humble beginnings, this dry cleaner has continued to stay true to their promise of providing the best services in the area. Initially, Kean's started by laundering collars for LSU students. They were known as Southern Steam Laundry and they would pick up and deliver clothes with a horse-drawn wagon. Eventually, they renamed the business, moved locations, and replaced their wagons with gas vehicles. You can find a few of Kean’s locations around town, but we are fans of the location off of Jefferson Highway, in particular. This dry cleaner is actually right by Portobello’s restaurant, a local business we’ve previously mentioned in our small business blog series. The location at 7629 Jefferson Highway is opened from 7 a.m to 7 p.m Monday through Friday and 8 a.m to 4 p.m on Saturday. So, what kind of services can you expect from Kean’s? Of course, they provide dry cleaning for all of your garments using a gentle yet thorough process. They also provide specific services for your shirts and casual wear. You’ll enjoy stain removal, folded or hanging garments, and perfectly pressed collars and cuffs. Kean’s also offers an express bag service, which can save you quite a bit of time. They have a VIP Express Bag service where they use automatic billing to save you time or standard express bag service, which includes the same perks without the auto-billing. Brides will also be happy to know that Kean’s provides high-quality wedding gown preservation. With such an important job at stake, it’s important to choose a provider that has plenty of experience with dealing with wedding gowns. Kean’s goes the extra mile to ensure that your dress is in the best shape possible. They even fold, box, and seal your dress for long-term storage. The box that they use is a special museum-quality heirloom box that is meant to preserve the integrity of your gown for years to come.

Losing my own brother, then my father and sister after long, disabling illnesses just a few months apart drove a career change for me. Before that experience, I never truly understood the place you’re in. I never understood the dramatic impact that receiving (or not receiving) the disability and life insurance benefits you paid for and counted on can have on your life especially when you need to focus on family and healing. What I experienced with my own family now drives the way I view my clients and my work, and I will never forget it!
