Mountain Fresh Hospitality Services Inc. – Sevierville, Tenn.
Mountain Fresh Hospitality Services profit has skyrocketed thanks to the strategic decision to add commercial laundry services to their janitorial/housekeeping business with the help of Laundry Systems of Tennessee. Today, Mountain Fresh's commercial laundry business generates 45 to 50 percent of the company's sales. Before Angie Smith, owner, did all of the laundry from her garage with two top-load washers and two dryers. Now they have expanded into a 10,000 square-foot building complete with some of Continental's largest washer-extractors and two flatwork ironers, specifically designed to handle the company's growing laundry needs. Just 18 months after installing its 32-inch Continental ironer, linen production and sales doubled. The new ironer eliminated the need to run additional shifts to keep up with linen volume.
