Our Story

Six Decades of Service in the MOV

Mahlon Fauss had worked in the dry cleaning business for four years when he first opened Vogue Cleaners on Front Street in 1950 (for just eighty dollars’ rent, if you can believe it!). Now, sixty years later, the Fauss family still manages over Vogue Swift Inc. and remains dedicated to the community ethic that has kept business thriving for three generations.

Now located at 120 Third Street Marietta, OH, Vogue Swift is owned by Mahlon’s two grandsons – Adam & Andy Fenton. Adam is a Certified Dry Cleaner and utilizes his expertise to make sure every garment that comes through Vogue Swift Inc. comes out flawless. He has nearly 15 years of dry cleaning experience and continues to look for new ways to improve plant operations. Over the years Adam has been able to implement state of the art equipment. This has enabled him to run a more efficient workflow while being environmentally sound. Also, he is happy to note that his Finishers are certified by the Midwest Dry Cleaning and Laundry Institute.

Within the last two years Adam’s younger brother, Andy Fenton, joined the business to work as the company’s CFO. In addition to managing the financial operations Andy looks to develop new marketing and management strategies to ensure that Vogue Swift remains the Valley’s best dry cleaner. Where there were once twelve dry cleaners in town, there are now two. Adam and Andy are proud to succeed their grandfather’s legacy. By bringing new energy, new ideas, and new technologies to the table they continue to keep Vogue Swift Inc. moving in the right direction to serve Mid Ohio valley for future generations.

The Fauss family is extremely proud of the success that they have earned after over a half-century’s worth of hard work. They believe in the values that only a family-owned shop can provide and they believe in the service that only a community-based business is capable of giving. Our employees are family and our community is family. So come join us in celebrating over sixty years of service. Be a part of our family!
