Thank you for taking the time to check us out. To be honest, I stumbled into the laundry business – literally. In April 2009, I was recovering from an Achilles tendon repair surgery and having to share one washer and dryer with 14 other apartments (while on crutches!) made doing laundry difficult. I decided doing several loads at once at a Laundromat would be more efficient. After a few weeks of trying different local Laundries, I assumed the normal laundry experience was in a run down, boring, neglected business with little-to-no customer service. It made no sense to me to get my clothes clean in a dirty Laundromat. It was far off my radar at the time, so I decided to investigate and get to know the business. After months of researching Laundries in San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, Houston and Boston, I uncovered The Washboard Laundry.
It was the perfect opportunity to try some pretty radical ideas. My plan was relatively simple: a Laundromat with modern décor, current magazines (Thanks Mom!) and amenities, some tech, and a clean, fun, social vibe. This kind of Laundromat was not out there – TRUST ME – I looked at over 75 of ‘em. So, I honed my ideas and pitched the idea to my parents. They were thumbs up. On April 28th, 2010, The Washboard Laundry was born.
Although, we no longer offer self-service laundry due to the increase in our commerical and fluff and fold laundry services, we still continue to pride ourselves on great customer service and cleanliness. The well-trained staff will make sure your experience goes smoothly and that your laundry is returned fresh and clean with a smile.
