Crown Linen, a South Florida commercial laundry and linen firm, has expanded to the Sarasota-Bradenton market with the acquisition of Laundry Plus.
Terms of the deal weren't disclosed. Manatee County-based Laundry Plus, founded in 1989, had $8.2 million in revenues in 2015 and has 103 employees.
Miami-based Crown Linen, says Managing Partner Pablo Lucchesi in a release, has more than doubled its facilities in the last year with the Laundry Plus purchase. It now has operations in Miami, Orlando, Fort Myers and Haines City, according to a release.
“Having facilities close to our customers is key, and we're thrilled to be able to offer superior products and services to a new set of clients in West Central Florida,” Lucchesi says.
Laundry Plus' service area includes Bradenton, Sarasota, St. Petersburg and Tampa. The company won a large contract to do work for Disney World in 2014.
Laundry Plus owner Rick Rone, in the statement, says the company is “excited about the futurea as a part of the Crown Linen team. We could not have found a better partner due to their position on ecology and providing the ultimate quality and service at the best value.”
