About The Owner

I'm Grant Carson, and I own two franchise locations—one in Alameda, CA, and the other in Danville, CA. My roots trace back to Pinole, CA, my hometown.

My journey as a franchise owner began in 1986, driven by a strong motivation for dry cleaning—a business that, for me, ticked all the right boxes. It offered scalability, stability, and a multitude of facets that made every day in the industry an exciting and dynamic one. My early experience working part-time in a dry cleaner during high school laid the groundwork for this endeavor.

The choice of locations for my franchises was influenced by my deep affection for the communities they serve. The people in Alameda and Danville are nothing short of amazing, and the vibrant community vibe is truly something special.

Throughout the years, I've had the privilege of interacting with a diverse range of customers, including professional athletes from the Oakland A's, Oakland Raiders, and Golden State Warriors. However, some of my most cherished interactions have been with the dedicated Police and Fire personnel we serve. While our business has evolved into a predominantly delivery-oriented model in recent years, we miss the personal connections we used to have.

Reflecting on milestones and proud moments, I take immense pride in my 37-year journey as part of Martinizing. In 2024, our Alameda location will celebrate its 35th year of operation. Three of our staff members are set to mark their 25th year with Martinizing in 2024, a testament to their dedication. Moreover, our accomplishments, such as being voted "Best of Alameda" for eight consecutive years and earning "Best of the East Bay" honors five times for our Danville location, are especially meaningful as they are a reflection of the trust and appreciation of our customers.

It's this support and recognition from our valued customers that I hold dearest, making me most proud of these achievements.

Some Feedback From
Our Customers

Wow, talk about customer service! Very shocked to see so many mixed reviews. I submitted an online inquiry late on a Sunday night. Didn't hear anything for a few days and received both a personal email apologizing for the oversight - which was completely unnecessary in itself - and a 100% free first order. Um...unheard of. The order was for 3 couches worth of cushion covers, a few pillow covers, and 3 smaller couch cushions whose covers required being removed and sewn back on. All were velvet or linen (not a light order). I organized the service for my boss who is in the midst of a move and wanted clean furniture in the new house. Martinizing scored me MAJOR points with her and gained customers for life! Everything was cleaned and fixed perfectly, the team was very communicative and easy to talk to, the entire service was quick, efficient, and exactly as promised. I'm thoroughly impressed with Martinizing Dry Cleaners all around! Thank you again! :)

I searched for a good dry cleaner before landing on Martinizing as the best option. Service is friendly and personal like a small shop. You get the big shop efficiency and reliability too. I’ve had clothes mended, suits and jackets cleaned, and tough stains worked on. The result is always consistent, good quality, and any exceptions well communicated

Janet Sun

I’m new to the area and I needed a fast dry clean for the Christmas party. First dry cleaner I called didn’t answer the phone, second cleaner said they won’t do one day cleanings. I’m so glad I found Martinizing cleaners, they were able todo the one day service at a very reasonable price. Customer service is great and easy. I definitely recommend them and they’ve won my business for the foreseeable future.

Still going to Martinizing five years later! The service is just that good - I'm always amazed at how fast they can turn things around. Just dropped off a comforter on Monday, and they sent me a text same day saying it's ready - three days ahead of schedule. Swung by the next day, got absolutely pleasant service from Margarite, and was on my way. I'll be back!

I contracted with the seamstress to replace the zipper on a new dress. Everyone I encountered was professional, kind and helpful. I highly recommend Martinizing Dry Cleaners!

Great customer service, fast service and great communication. Automatic text reminders sent when items are ready for pick up and next day service available. I only wish they offered extended same day services. I highly recommend this company!
