Cycle Laundry expands in Washington, D.C.

 

Wash Cycle Laundry, the Philadelphia-based pedal-powered laundry delivery service, has added another territory to its coverage area: George Washington University.

Through an agreement with janitorial services provider Aramark, Wash Cycle Laundry will launder the university's reusable cleaning linens. The job will result in the employment of three full-time laundry staff and two full-time cyclists, doubling Wash Cycle Laundry's current staff in Washington, the company said.

Founded in 2010, it expanded to the nation's capital last May, and now also operates in Austin, Texas. In all, it has created nearly 50 jobs, half of them filled by somoeone who has experienced imprisonment, addiction, homelessness or welfare dependence.
