Really the largest?
Yes, thanks for asking

With more than 300 machines spread over 13,500 square feet, it would be a pretty safe bet that no laundromat is larger.

But that wasn't good enough for us. So in 1983, the industry held a contest to award the title of "world's largest laundromat."

Spoiler alert: WE WON.


The Fire of 2004

In 2004, a terrible fire burned the original structure to the ground. That, however, would not be the end.

In 2006, a state-of-the-art facility sprung from those ashes, setting industry precedents in technology, comfort and customer service.

Welcome to the World's Largest Laundromat.



The World’s Largest Laundromat in Berwyn, Ill., is the flagship store of the laundry industry, known worldwide for its state-of-the-art technology and its philanthropy. Forget everything you know about Laundromats: Preconceptions need not apply.

This father-sons business has been featured in newspapers and newscasts on every continent except Antarctica. This operation has even become a tourist destination and a must-see for industry figures hoping to catch a glimpse as to what the future looks like.

But why did Reader’s Digest call us America’s Best Laundromat? And what do we bring to the table for your commercial district?

  • More than 6,000 customers … a week. What does that mean for your area? Our 6,000 customers will be in the neighborhood for two hours on average, with some family members doing the laundry while the others shop at other stores.
  • Our size is a big part of who we are, at 13,500 square feet. That allows space for more than 300 machines, a bird aviary, early-childhood education center, deli-style vending area, video games, 15 flatscreen HD televisions, free Wi-Fi, Internet café, to name just a few amenities.
  • Green energy. Our 36-panel solar system heats the water for our washers. Other green features: “express” washers that cut dry time in half, and retrofitted efficiency lighting. The Sundance Channel recently featured us on their “EcoBiz” segment.
  • Gov. Patrick Quinn has taken a lead on renewable energies, and he has used our rooftop for press conferences on state initiatives. That wouldn’t work without our reputation preceding him … the same reputation we’ll carry to your area.
  • Philanthropy: As a family business, we’re focused on being a source of pride for our community. In Read-to-Ride, kids get raffle tickets (8,000 on average) for every book they read over the summer. Then, 20 lucky readers ride off on new bikes in a summer-ending raffle. To date, the program has given away about 100 bikes. Santa Claus also makes four stops, giving away toys to about 1,000 children. We also do the laundry for West Suburban PADS, a great network of local homeless shelters.

What we are looking for:

  • 45,000 square feet of land (for purchase, not lease)
  • High-density area (more than 50,000 people within a mile)
  • High percentage of renters (over 50% preferred)
  • Rehabbing an existing building possible, as long as above criteria also met
