Emmanuel Makrandreou took over Irene's Dry Cleaning 12 years ago, keeping in the family the business set up by his parents in 1972.
"It wasn't something that I consciously thought was something I wanted to do," he said.
"I used to work for a mining company beforehand and my skill set was different, but at the time my father became ill my mother was the primary carer, so I had to step up and help them."
His mother Irene still works in the business.
