Legaci Dry Cleaners

Biography

Every entrepreneur dreams of making it big, of taking things to the cleaners, so to speak. Dudu Mofokeng was no different, despite the fact that her business is cleaning. She launched Legaci Dry Cleaners and Laundry Services with the simple idea of making enough money to be rich, but says that changed when she saw the difference having a job made to her only employee at the time. “That day I realised that it was not just about me, but rather about impacting and changing the lives of people around me. I now employ more than two dozen people in the business, offers both commercial and domestic laundry services, including restoration of pillows,” she says. What sets the company apart, however, is the fact that it also specialises in the cleaning, preservation and restoration of wedding gowns and other sentimental garments, like uniforms and baptism dresses. Legaci is the only company operating in this particular niche, says Dudu, who adds that her company is also affiliated internationally to the Dry Clean and Laundry Institute and the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists in the US. “I still hope to launch a comprehensive online service and also open an upmarket store in Cape Town focused solely on cleaning, preserving and restoring vintage wedding gowns. In addition, I would like to offer corporate office parks a dedicated pick-up and delivery dry clean service. If I can achieve this, I will be able to impact positively on the lives of even more people.”
