CHICAGO — Laundries are called on to perform a wide variety of services, according to the results of this month's Wire survey.
As one might expect, virtually all respondents report their operations process linen or uniforms and load and/or distribute linen carts or uniform racks. From there, however, the types of services performed varied from one to another.
Three-quarters of respondents clean food-and-beverage linen. The same percentage provides laundry/linen service to outside accounts. Half of the respondents report cleaning staff uniforms or workwear.
