Levingers has been in operation in Gauteng for over seven decades. The original Levingers business was a Shoe Clinic operated by Peter Levinger, an experienced and specialised cobbler renowned for his craftsmanship. A merger with ‘The Shoe Hospital’ in the 1990s resulted in a steady growth of the network and Levingers brand. In 2012, Levingers was acquired by Hay Business Consultants under the direction of Yadhir Mooloo.
Levingers has been engaged in the franchising since 2011. During its years of operation, Levingers has created an effective and profitable business model and franchisees enjoy the support of a franchisor committed to helping its franchisees achieve significant success in their business. With 60+ stores across Gauteng, the Free State, Limpopo and Western Cape, Levingers prides itself on providing the quality of service that has made it the premier Dry Clean and Shoe Clinic in South Africa.
In addition to their dry cleaning, laundry and on-site shoe repair services, Levingers franchise outlets retail an extensive range of shoe and closet care products and provide specialised services such as mending and tailoring, tailor-made suits, professional dyeing of clothes, shoes and leather and vinyl goods and specialised cleaning of leather and suede items. Levingers also offers large corporate businesses a tailor-made service for in-house dry cleaning, shoe repair and clothes mending.
Franchisees are supported by Head Office with business supports, quality service, processing and sales and marketing tools. Ongoing training is provided on an ad-hoc basis to ensure that franchisees stay abreast of industry trends. Applicants with prior business experience, who are comfortable dealing with people from all walks of life, will be given preference.
