we work hard to bring
Deluxe Cleaners, formerly known as (Maria’s Alterations) was founded by Maria Quito in 2007. Maria was born and raised in Ecuador, in a small city named Cuenca. Unfortunately, living standards where very low in the city at the time. Due to this misfortune, she was forced to drop out of school by 4th grade and had to start working to make ends meet. Maria lived in a very poor village in the outskirts Cuenca, where the only means of living day to day was agriculture. This is where she gained her love for nature and plants (which will later influence the the environment of plants set in every storefront).
At the age of 12, her mother had introduced her to a sewing machine. Her mother had taught her how to do the basics at an early age. From simple hems to sewing on buttons she used her newly found skill to work for small retailers. From the ages of 15 through 21, she worked as a seamstress for many local clothing shops. Although, times were tough for Maria, she sought out for a better life. So at the age of 25 she made the move to the big apple, New York.
Once settled in NYC, she was able to get a job as a clothing manufacturer for Gap. This is where she learned the necessary skills that will become so vital for her future success. She worked at Gap for many years, but she decided to call it quits and move to Las Vegas by 1999. She found a job at a local dry cleaner’s as a presser. From here, Maria learned about the dry cleaning industry in general. After her stint as a presser, she worked as a seamstress for many different company’s including: David’s Bridal, Macy’s and Men’s Warehouse. All of which has built her career as an experienced and professional tailor.
By 2007, Maria decided to take a leap of faith and open up her own Dry Cleaners and Alteration shop in Henderson, NV. With the help of her loving family, they managed to build the business to what it is today. Her story is the reason we strive to be the very best at what we do. Maria has set the foundation as to how we do business and how we treat our customers. Deluxe is more than your local trusted dry cleaners. It is an inspiration for any aspiring entrepreneurs who want to build for themselves. Deluxe is proof that whatever your background or current situation is, you can accomplish things you never thought you could.
