Work Uniforms Success Story: Truck Center

Work Uniforms Success Story: Truck Center

After being awarded the uniform rental business at their newest facility less than a year ago, Roscoe now provides rental services to all of their Chicagoland locations for one of the largest truck dealership and service centers in the Midwest because of our strengths in processes and personnel, and our attention to detail.


As a newer member of the Roscoe family of customers, this truck service center has 400 team members across ten locations throughout Illinois, Indiana and Michigan. They initially became a Roscoe customer for work uniform rental services in October 2015 with 40 wearers at one of four Chicago facilities, including both executive garments and work uniforms for technicians, drivers, warehouse employees, service advisors, and countermen. We were told that if we proved ourselves at this initial location, we would also acquire their business at three additional facilities in the Chicago area.



The Benefits of RFID Technology and how the Chicago Laundry Service Utilizes It

Headlines have been circling recently that the average hotel loses 10-20% of linens per month (2% due to theft). To combat this some 2,000 hotels have embedded radio-frequency identification (RFID) chips in their towels, robes, bedsheets and other linen to track which linens make it to and from the cleaners and to keep real-time inventory. Roscoe "The Chicago Uniform Company" thinks this is phenomenal as it is technology we have been using with our garments and in our facility for quite some time now.  text
