Roscoe and The Cubs

Roscoe and The Cubs 

Cubs' president Theo Epstein and manager Joe Maddon have created a team atmosphere that feeds off of itself. Combine this with talent and you start to understand why the Chicago Cubs won a World Series championship for the first time in 108 years.

The same is true with your friendly neighborhood work uniform rental service: The Roscoe Company. Here's why...

It Starts with The Team

Though on purpose, we're fortunate to have assembled a talented group that has led to a fun culture that's team-oriented. We all Take Pride, which is why it's our tagline.

We do "stoopid" teambuilding games with Bruce Hodes of CMI to help ensure that we all work as an effective team, especially considering our diverse backgrounds. We also launch new strategic initiatives every year, similar to Joe Maddon's belief that the 2016 Chicago Cubs could make the playoffs with last year's prophetic Embrace the Target mantra, and we achieve them because of how well we work together and how we incentivize our team to go above and beyond.

Celebrating Wins

As with the Cubs after every win, we celebrate our victories: landing a new account (especially when underserved by a national rental service provider), renewing an existing account, individual performances of excellence, and completing each strategic initiative.

We also recognize tenure and loyalty – many of our employees have been with us for over 20 years – in fact, 20 were in attendance at our 95th anniversary celebration. And, since many of us are Cubs fans, we take both team members and customers to games and use Cubs tickets as prizes for internal campaigns.

The Ultimate Winner

Who benefits the most from what we do? Our Customers!

Our strategic initiatives and incentivized sales and customer service campaigns all add up to a higher quality of work uniform rental service for all of the organizations we work with throughout Chicago and the suburbs.

Who Do You Want to Work With?

We also have rivalries like the Cubs and we're the local good guys – just in orange instead of blue.

If you want to work with a local work uniform rental company that provides the personalized and attentive customer service you'd expect from a family-owned business, combined with the ISO 9001:2008 process quality that you'd expect of tenured professionals, then let us know before your current agreement is auto-renewed!
