Best delivery with a smile (and a biscuit): Jennifer Farr, Rogers Cleaners

Best delivery with a smile (and a biscuit)

If one were to look for a reason Rogers Cleaners’ Jennifer Farr was named Sales/Driver of the Year in a competition with drycleaning pros all over the country, you could point to her reliability, her efficiency, or her personable, caring approach with customers. But really, it’s because she let her St. Pete delivery route go to the dogs. One customer’s canine now looks longingly upward whenever she sees a red Rogers drycleaning bag hanging from the front door; the dog knows that when her owner takes the bag down, he’ll find the biscuit Jennifer left along with the cleaning. (One woman’s pug has been known to drag the bag around the house, obsessed with the possibility of more hidden treats.). Jennifer says she’s “big on customer service,” and that’s true — for both the two- and four-legged customers she serves. (Plus, Rogers does a near-impeccable job cleaning clothes.) 2013 Fourth St. N., St. Petersburg, 727-894-0706. rogerscleaners.com.
