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.

WYSIWYG01

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.

 
 

ALWAYS LOOKING TO IMPROVE

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? 

  • More than 6,000 customers … a week. 
  • 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, 16 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.
  • 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 more than 200 bikes. Santa Claus also makes four stops, giving away toys to about 1,000 children.
  • FIREWORKS! A few years ago, we were proud to bring back the city of Berwyn's Independence Day fireworks. It is a tradition that we will continue as long as we're in business. 

What we are working on:

  • Adding more credit-card readers to more washers and dryers, so you'll have the choice when paying. 
  • Replacing our oldest washers with the newest ones the industry offers. 
  • Always looking for new, local entertainers to add to our events calendar.
