KISSIMMEE, Fla. — A Clean Laundry store opened here last week, making it the third Florida location to feature the Iowa-rooted brand. A Clickstop Inc. business unit, Clean Laundry licenses the brand name, concepts and standards of excellence to store owners and investors.
The new store is located on East Vine Street here in Kissimmee and is co-owned by Scott Stackhouse; his other local Clean Laundry store is some three miles away on West Vine. He offered free wash and dry during the Nov. 4 grand opening and plans to offer free dry during certain hours every Tuesday and Thursday.
“Our customer base was growing rapidly, (so) we knew early on that we needed to add a second location,” says Stackhouse, who also owns a Clean Laundry in nearby Orlando. “We know Clean Laundry serves a need in this community as a cleaner, faster, and more efficient way to get your laundry completed.”
The new Kissimmee store is equipped with machines capable of washing and drying loads in as little as one hour, Clean Laundry says. It also features bright LED lighting and state-of-the-art security surveillance. Mobile pay options, free high-speed Wi-Fi, large-screen HDTVs, USB charging stations, and seating areas are among the store’s amenities.
Both Kissimmee locations are fully staffed and offer express wash-dry-fold services.
Father-son duo Phil and Ethan Akin developed the first Clean Laundry store in 2014 in Waterloo, Iowa. Over the years, stores with the Clean Laundry brand have opened in several other states.
