TitleThe Stars Endorse This Place
AbstractA laundry business in Westport called Westport Cleaners located at 20 Westport Road is owned by Mike and Joe Sansone and opened in 1967. The place is known as "Cleaner to the Stars." The shop has done the dry cleaning for many celebrities while they were in Kansas City to perform on stage or in movies. The wall of the business contains momentos found with the clothes as well as photographs and keepsakes from the stars. "If there's an entertainer who has performed at the Sprint Center, Midland Theatre or Starlight Theatre, chances are the Sansones have cleaned their clothes."
