U.S. Dry Cleaning Corporation Acquires Competitor Increasing Annualized Revenue to Over $22 Million and More Than Doubles Its Revenues From Last Year's Same Quarter

PALM SPRINGS, CA--(Marketwire - March 27, 2008) - U.S. Dry Cleaning Corporation (OTCBB: UDRY) ("U.S. Dry Cleaning," "USDC") is proud to announce that it has acquired the assets of Zoots Corporation, located in Portsmouth, Virginia. Zoots is a premiere chain on the east coast and this acquisition marks the emergence of a new geographic area for USDC giving it a presence on both coasts.

Zoots is the second acquisition USDC has made this quarter. This puts USDC on track to achieve its goal of a $100 million revenue run rate by the end of 2008. In February, USDC acquired the leading dry cleaning business in Central California. Together the two acquisitions will increase the Company's annualized revenue run rate by 120%.

Robbie Lee, Founder and CEO, USDC said, "We are determined to carry out our game plan of buying market share leading companies that have strong cash flow. With this acquisition of Zoots and our previously announced acquisition in February of Team Enterprises Inc., and their related entities in Central California, we are on track to achieve our goal of a $100 million run rate by the end of 2008. The acquisition brings revenue, volume and talent to USDC. Let me assure our shareholders, this is our first of several planned acquisitions in the eastern half of the U.S."

According to the terms of the acquisition, USDC paid a total of approximately $1.9 million, which included approximately $940,000 in cash and the balance in a short-term note.

William Wall, formerly of Zoots and now General Manager of USDC Portsmouth, Inc. stated, "We are very enthusiastic about joining the USDC family and excited to be part of the effort to create the nation's premier dry cleaning chain."
