It is well known that Austin, Texas is one of the faster growing cities in the United States. Along with the rapid increase of growth in Austin comes the drive to continue to keep the city Green.
One way the owners of a local Austin laundromat decided to help with this is by creating Austin’s first Green laundromat. Dedicated to reducing the amount of water, electricity and gas consumption, Laundry Works was created. Laundry Works is Austin’s premier laundry facility. It is located at 606 West 29th Street, Austin, Texas 78705 and is getting rave reviews from all of its patrons. Most recently, a nearby storeowner said that all of his customers think the Austin laundromat is the most modern, the cleanest, and the most aesthetically pleasing in the neighborhood. Customers are coming from near and far to do their laundry in LaundryWorks’ state-of-the-art facility, which is equipped with the latest and Greenest laundry equipment. Yelp users are complementing the staff, the service and the prices. And, to-date have given the store a 5 star rating, something the owners take tremendous pride in.
Contributing to this rating is the store’s Internet presence and the fact that it is constantly running online promotions! Austin, Texas is home to the University of Texas at Austin and thus have a lot of students living on campus. Laundry Works is located on West Campus and a majority of its customers attend the university. The store and the company pride itself on its use of social media, the Internet and print ads to revolutionize the Laundromat industry and the image of the industry. By using trendy advertisements and new ways to communicate with its customers and potential customers they are reaching a new, younger and very teach-savvy crowd. But, balancing this modern business model, the company has very cleverly, not forgotten the importance of customer service. It is not uncommon to be greeted at the door by one of the store’s employees, offered assistance to carry in your dirty laundry, and then shown the difference between the machines and explained which one best suits your needs.
It’s these personal touches that set LaundryWorks apart from the competing Austin laundromats. With no signs of slowing you would not want to do your laundry anywhere else. Also offered at the store, is a wash and fold service. For those customers who are in a rush or simply not in the mood to do their laundry they can drop it off with a staff member and confidently know that it will be washed and folded with the utmost care. The store never combines people’s dirty laundry and the turnaround time is quite impressive. For a few cents more you can even arrange to have your laundry washed and folded the same day.
With plans to expand nationwide in the near future, you’ll want to keep your eye on this company and hope that a store is coming to your area. They have recently opened their first store in the New York City and plan to continue to add additional stores in the region in the months to come. Helping stay Green while providing 5-star service and equipment is the business model that has taken off in Austin and is quickly expanding nationwide.
