About Ogden’s Cleaners
Ray and Laura began their journey into the dry cleaning industry in 1964. Leaving the corporate world behind them, the Ogdens purchased a quite antiquated commercial laundry and dry cleaning company in California. They were lucky that same day and one-hour services were becoming fashionable – more people were working more and needed their laundry cleaned and their suits dry cleaned in a hurry. Before long they were able to purchase another cleaners in Arcadia. In 1971, they sold both stores and bought a One Hour Martinizing in Santa Monica.
Shortly afteward, they opened a brand new Ogden’s cleaners in Pacific Palisades, which is where they lived. Ray and Laura prided themselves on doing quality, same day work, while also providing one-hour service and full tailoring and alterations. As they grew older, the four Ogden boys, Ray Jr., Dennis, Gary, and Jeffrey took on various responsibilities at the cleaners.
Because state licensing was a requirement, the entire Ogden family achieved this requirement, after about 365 hours of study. Although no longer a requirement, we remain state licensed because we feel that it is a plus. All of the boys branched out into their own successful, independently owned stores. They kept the same basic beliefs of doing quality work the way their mom and dad taught them. There have been over 30 dry cleaning and laundry facilities owned by the Ogden family since 1964. Many still carry the “Ogden” name, because even the new owners know that it stands for quality.
Carrying on the family tradition, the Anthem location was established in 2017 with Gary Ogden as the owner and his son Kevin as the primary helper and employee. They stand ready to serve you in the same family tradition that Ray and Laura established well over 50 years ago.
