Description
Full title:Frank Hayashida, formerly of Fresno, California, and Rohwer Center, owns with his partner, George Teraoka, a modern dry-cleaning establishment, Model Cleaners, located in the heart of downtown St. Louis, Missouri. In addition George manages the YMCA Tailor Shop where Frank and George both worked before purchasing their own business. As the Model Cleaners is a 19-year-old establishment, the two Nisei businessmen had a ready clientele from the beginning. They employ 14 Negro and Caucasian workers and are doing approximately $1,000 worth of business weekly. They recently installed the finest type of dry cleaning machinery of which OPA released three units in St. Louis. Theirs is the only dry-cleaning shop in downtown St. Louis with this new superior equipment. Frank Hayashida says that the Model Cleaners could employ Issei and Nisei pressers and hat-cleaners in the shop. He could also provide some housing as he has a six-room apartment over the shop and is using only one room at the present time. More information can be secured by writing Frank Hayashida, 202 N. 18th Street, St. Louis, Missouri. Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru St. Louis, Missouri.
