History

History Bell Drapery and Cleaners

Bell Drapery & Cleaners is a family-owned and operated business, with a twist. For more than 35 years the Jordan family has provided conscientious, customer-centered drycleaning and drapery cleaning services to the residents of Central Phoenix. Several years ago, 2004, we added the twist...membership in a national franchise, CRDN, Certified Restoration Drycleaning Network. CRDN is the largest and most respected company of its kind. All members provide textile restoration services to customers who have experienced water or fire damage. Granted, Bell Drapery & Cleaners had previously provided limited restoration services to its customers; however, our CRDN affiliation enunciates our commitment to this division of our company.

A brief history of our company starts in 1979 when Mary and Asa Jordan moved to Arizona from the midwest. Their plan was to retire in Phoenix as small business owners. They found their opportunity wrapped in the form of a drycleaning business. The original owners housed the company in a small, innocuous building at Thomas Road and 16th Street. In 1991 Michael moved to take over the reigns of this family-owned and operated business, assisting with the design and location of a new operations plant. Three short years later, Michael secured the Arizona franchise for CRDN and is today one of 120 national and international partners within the CRDN network. Read more about CRDN on our "Restoration" link.

Asa and Mary are retired in Phoenix, and are now "customers" of Bell Drapery & Cleaners. But Bell Drapery & Cleaners remains a family-owned and operated business with Michael and Laura Jordan at the helm. An office in Tucson has been open for 10 years, while an office in Flagstaff is on the discussion table.  An expansion facility near the main plant on 7th Street has been refurbished and is now the official home to CRDN.

Conscientious cleaning...a business commitment that runs in the family.
