It is very hard to imagine that after having your life made with your family, job, and profession, all of the sudden you have to start all over, yes, totally from scratch.
Move to a new country, with a different language and idiosyncrasy, you find yourself alone with your small family, but with no friends or extended family members.
Get a new job, you have to learn from zero, you have no experience in that area but you have all the courage, illusion, emotion, and fear that leads you to face everything and overcome all obstacles.
Although later, remembering our loved ones, you realize that perhaps this had to be our path: Juan’s father worked in a dry cleaner’s when he arrived in Venezuela (what a coincidence!) and my mother was a seamstress. Here are 2 essential ingredients for the DRY CLEANERS equation: Dry cleaning and alterations, the perfect mix.
We arrived just like that, with suitcases full of illusions, uncertainty, desire to work and give our children a successful future.
We found a country that opened its doors for us, a business that has given us great satisfaction and we got to met the people who have the most value in Elite Press, our team.
A team without which we would never have been able to learn and adapt to this new environment. People who today give everything to make sure each garment is clean, well ironed, and full of love.
We have learned that, more than just washing and ironing clothes, we are the ones who do magic so that the garments have a relaxing day and can continue telling stories. Yes, they tell stories, because each piece of clothing transports us to a moment in our lives, to recall an aroma, a sensation or a feeling. Each garment is part of our life, our history and that of our family.
