Did you know the uniform industry used to be mostly family-owned companies that built strong relationships with their community?
However, nowadays, many of these local businesses have been swallowed up by the large, publicly traded corporations. Studies show that communication and customer service suffer with these well-known national uniform providers compared to independent suppliers. In fact, the main reason why our customers switched to us boils down to the lack of trust in their national uniform provider.
If you’re looking to start a new uniform program for your business or change suppliers, here are a few things to consider in your process. And why choosing a local, independent option may be the right choice for you!
National vs. Local: By the Numbers
The CSC Network, a network of more than 175 independent retail laundries in the US, Canada, and Puerto Rico, completed an unbiased uniform rental study and found the following to be true:
When asked about the advantages of using a locally-owned rental launderer vs. larger, national rental uniform supplier, they frequently mentioned better, more personalized service (41%) and supporting the local economy (41%) as main motivating factors.
Why Go Local?
Independent companies make decisions that benefit their customers and employees, not corporate shareholders.
Fewer layers of management allow for quicker decision-making and more attentive responses to customers.
A family-focused work culture typically creates happier employees and more care for the products and services, leading to more satisfied customers.
Local businesses make more local purchases, strengthening the communities they serve.
How Do Local Companies Achieve Higher Quality?
Trends come and go, but the way we do business doesn’t change. Staying in business over 100 years has required both commitment and the ability to adapt and learn.
