Originally a vision of Mr. Timothy Rodgers, Washateria finally became a reality on July 10, 2012. Our vision began with a few simple ideas that we’ve continued to stick with. Washateria operates under five basic principles:
A laundromat should be clean. Why should a place where you go to clean your clothes be dirty? At Washateria, we take pride in keeping our facilities clean so that you can feel good about washing your clothes here.
Customers should be treated well. We work hard to provide our customers with a superior customer experience. Beyond providing a clean environment for doing laundry, we offer several amenities such as free Wi-Fi, games, and an ATM machine. Regular customers are rewarded with our Clean Rewards loyalty program. Whether you are a first-time customer or a regular patron, excellent customer service is our top priority.
Employees should be paid fairly. We believe in paying employees a wage that is sustainable for both the employer and the employee. We understand that paying our employees well is not only the right thing to do, but it also helps ensure that our staff remains devoted to taking care of each and every customer.
Businesses should give back to the community. At Washateria, we feel that it’s important to give back to the community that provides us with our business success. Our neighborhood and our community are the heart of our company. We strive to provide something in return by creating a clean, enjoyable space where friends and neighbors can hang out and do laundry.
Environmental impact should be reduced. We believe businesses should work to offset their environmental impact as much as possible. At Washateria, we use high-quality, high-efficiency laundry equipment in order to reduce our carbon footprint and increase business efficiency. We also have solar panels installed on the roof of our building. By utilizing solar energy, we help maintain a clean environment by saving trees and offsetting carbon pollution.
