Drape Kings Expands its Kingdom to the Windy City

North Bergen, NJ – August 13, 2012 - Drape Kings, the undisputed leader in event drape, is thrilled to announce their expansion into Chicagoland with the opening of their third regional office. Effective immediately, Chicago event planners and staging professionals have access to Drape Kings' extensive inventory of high quality event drape as well as our full complement of related items including rope and stanchions, quick & traveler tracks, kabuki drops, Star Drape, Hollywood quality Step & Repeats, and in house cleaning services.

“We're very excited about expanding the Kingdom!” states Drape Kings Chief Operating Officer, Kevin Goodrich. “For years we've seen a noticeable uptick in both drape sales and rentals in and around Chicago. We feel that the market is under served and could use a true one-stop-shop to support a very robust events industry.”

Our Chicago staff is no stranger to the local market or the exacting standards of Drape Kings. All personnel have years of event industry experience, have been trained in our fine tuned standards at both our New York and Washington DC offices and are fully committed to the Kingdom's 24/7 one-stop-shop and client driven philosophies.

Drape Kings President and CEO, Dru Whitacre, states “Many of our customers have asked us why we didn't expand sooner to Chicago. We can only say we are a patient brand and will not commit until we are positive that we can fully serve the marketplace. Finding the right people, location and solutions to fit the market has always trumped quick expansion.”
