Say hi to Lizeth!

Lizeth sm

She has been part of the Oakwood family for almost 9 years, during which time she has been pregnant 3 times including right now! Lizeth is still working to make sure your pants are pressed to perfection. Ready to pop, she will be leaving next month for maternity leave, but you can rest assured she will be back.

(Side note– Lizeth is also one of our go to team members  for pressing the beautiful wedding gowns that come to Oakwood Cleaners. More about that later in another post.)


Rosa is ready and willing to take on the job of pressing your pants.

She has been with us almost a year and has caught on to the “Oakwood Way” very well indeed.

We have your garment care covered from top to bottom at Oakwood Cleaners.


Life at Oakwood Cleaners – Post 1

Have you been to Oakwood Cleaners lately?

Rachel Lunsford our Customer Service Manager has been with the Oakwood Cleaners family for one year.

She is a bundle of energy that makes you smile the minute you hear her friendly voice. Questions, issues, compliments – give Rachel a call.

If you happen to notice a bright blue Honda driving I-65, I- 440 or I-40 it is probably Rachel going back and forth between our 3 locations in Nashville, Cool Springs and our plant in Hermitage. She also has been known to make deliverys and pick up items!

Our employees know that if Rachel is to stay happy, she needs her coffee. Starbucks, Grande Americana with 2 shots of Peppermint.

Customer service is a #1 priority at Oakwood Cleaners and Rachel is here for you.


As a member of LCI (Leading Cleaners Internationale), Oakwood Cleaners was chosen to host the semi-annual couture dry cleaning conference April 2nd – 4th at the historic Hermitage Hotel in downtown Nashville, TN. Representatives from many of the member cleaners embarked on Nashville ready to discuss the nuances of couture dry cleaning.

We had representatives all the way from Canada, New York, Nebraska, New Orleans and California!


A trip to Oakwood’s plant in Hermitage, Tennessee led to a great discussion and shared ideas by all during the next 2 days of activities.

One of the highlights of the conference was our guest speaker Nashville resident and businessman Tom Negri.
His discussion of team work and immigration were inspiring and educational; 2 topics that were of great interest to all of us.

A great time was had by all, including evenings on Broadway visiting music venues, great food and ending at the Grand Ole Opry with some that stayed over.
