Laundry Warehouse - New Jersey

If anyone knows about the meaning of a good location for Laundromats, it is Mark Lustbader of Laundry Warehouse in New Jersey. Mark, a real estate professional, entered the commercial laundry industry ready to put his experience & willingness to learn about the laundry industry to work. He has had the honor of teaming up with Cliff Ross, our NJ-based salesman, for about 20 years. Their relationship has been built on trust, professionalism, and loyalty.  It’s these three key ingredients that Mark finds most important when running his laundries as well.

With ten Laundromats spread out over Northern New Jersey, Mark says, “Location is important, but what Laundry Warehouse means to my customers is just as important.”  He says, “other valuable components to operating successful Laundromats are offering superior laundry equipment, providing consistent customer service, and making sure the staff delivers a helpful service.”

Capitol Restoration - Ronkonkoma, NY

The Fullone family has proudly run their laundry businesses with exceptional customer service. Damiano Fullone started Michele Dry Cleaners over 40 years ago, providing the highest quality dry cleaning and unmatched customer service in the Smithtown, NY area. As he established himself as a household name in the community, he made sure to leave room for his sons, Randy and Joe, to show their names in the family business. He instilled the importance of courtesy and respect, and the boys educated themselves to be ready to step in.

Randy and Joe knew they could grow the business, so they introduced a restoration component to their dry-cleaning business. They started Capitol Garment Restoration and owned and operated their Ronkonkoma, NY, location. In 2013 Randy & Joe welcomed an additional owner, Anthony Campagna. Anthony brought his sales, marketing, and customer service expertise to the Capitol team.

For Doug Zoraian, owner and operator of 7 Laundromats throughout New Jersey’s Bergen and Passaic counties, it is vital to connect with your distributor and feel like you share a sense of loyalty.

While working on a new location for a Laundromat, Doug was introduced to Cliff Ross at Metropolitan. He instantly made a personal connection with Cliff. The two met to discuss the new location, and immediately Doug was impressed. 

Cliff thoroughly went through the details about the equipment, and Doug couldn’t believe the significant cost savings of the commercial laundry equipment Metropolitan was offering. Doug stated, “looking back, it was one of the best decisions I’ve made purchasing equipment from Metropolitan Laundry Machinery.”

Wantagh Fire Department

When the Wantagh Fire Department was looking to repair their 25-year-old UniMac washer, they called Metropolitan Laundry Machinery Sales, Inc.

 

Bill Breslin, the Wantagh Fire District Supervisor, contacted our office to schedule a service appointment with our veteran service manager of over 40 years, Robert Ricca.

Robert met with Bill to evaluate the washer & complete the repair. After thoroughly reviewing the washer, it was clear that the unit needed to be replaced.

Together, they designed a plan to replace not only the old unit with a new UniMac 130lb washer-extractor but also added a UniMac stack washer/dryer, stack tumbler, and Fireman’s PPE Drying Cabinets.
