Sarah Guilott-McInnis has joined America’s Best Cleaners (ABC) in the role of implementation specialist. A third-generation drycleaner owner, Guilott-McInnis has spent most of her life in a drycleaning shop. Her family has owned and operated AAA Drive In Cleaners in Lake Charles, Louisiana, for over 60 years. They have developed a strong presence in their community and have been recognised as the Best Cleaner in Lake Charles for more 20 years.

Sarah has a strong passion for fashion. Aside from owning and operating AAA Drive In Cleaners, she also owns Geodesica Vintage Clothing, an online market for fun and funky vintage fashions spanning the 1940s to the 1970s. As an Art Education major, she’s developed a keen eye for vintage fashions which has led to her profound knowledge and expertise in textile restorations.

Executive director Chris White said: “Sarah is a great addition to our team in aiding us to fill the knowledge vacuum that we are currently facing in the industry. We are excited for Sarah to share her love of fashion, experience working in all aspects of an award-winning operation and her background in education. She brings the perfect combination to aid our clients in developing highly skilled technicians.”

Guilott-McInnis said: “I’m very excited and feel privileged to be joining such an elite team as ABC. I’m looking forward to working with owners and managers to develop and implement systems that will promote quality and efficiency within their operations. The drycleaning industry can be a tough line of work and to be able to help others lead a less stressful life empowers what I try to do.”
