La Unica was established in 1969 by Manuel Lopez Sr. After mastering the trade, Mr. Lopez opened his own dry cleaning business to better serve Santa Fe and meet the community needs. He passed down his knowledge of the trade to his son, Manuel Lopez Jr. and Jorge Lopez. Manuel Lopez Jr. now owns and operates the business with his son, Javier (Chaz) Lopez at it's original location at 647 Cerrillos Rd. 


As the Santa Fe community continued to grow, a second location was opened in 1884 by George Lopez at 1932 Cerrillos Rd.
