Huebsch Names Teddy Galloway Store Owner of the Quarter

Thursday, April 13th, 2017

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 
 
 

Huebsch Names Teddy Galloway Store Owner of the Quarter

 
 
Commercial laundry equipment manufacturer Huebsch® has named Teddy Galloway the latest recipient of its Store Owner of the Quarter award. Since buying his first store in 2002, Galloway has not slowed down in building a stable of 10 locations in South West Virginia and East Tennessee.

“Teddy is a prime example of what success in the laundry business looks like,” said Kathryn Rowen, North American sales manager for Huebsch. “He has selected the right locations, worked extremely hard, and kept the focus always on providing an excellent customer experience. The kind of owner we are proud to work with.”

Galloway is a strong believer in everything happening for a reason, including the serendipitous meeting with his laundry equipment distributor, Stan Bradley at Laundry Systems of the Carolinas. He was visiting a sandwich shop over his lunch, when a friend hollered and waved him over to introduce him to Bradley, who was discussing a laundromat retool with the friend. A week later, Galloway became interested in buying that laundromat and Bradley was his first call.

Since that first meeting, Bradley has become far more than a distributor supplying Huebsch equipment to Galloway as he grows his portfolio of stores; he has become a trusted friend.

“It’s more like an unwritten partnership,” Galloway said of the relationship with Bradley and Laundry Systems of the Carolinas. “Whenever I have needed something, they have gone out of their way to help. I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for Laundry Systems.”

Galloway has grown his business both by retooling existing stores as well as through new construction. On both fronts, Huebsch equipment and Huebsch Financial Services have been trusted allies.

Previously, he worked in the engineering department of a coal company, but when his business grew to four locations, he decided to leave his job and focus on the business full time.

Half the stores in rural locations are open 24/7, while the other city-based businesses are open 6 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. All, however, are customer-focused as Galloway’s goal is to create a family-friendly atmosphere, where his customers get the “biggest bang for their buck.” That includes an emphasis on “big” machines. More than 50 percent of the washers (and 100% of dryers) in his stores are of the large, multi-load variety because “that is what customers want and look for.”

While Galloway is quick to point out there are no guarantees in this business, the support of his family (wife, Amy; and sons, Ethan and Thomas) has helped make him successful, along with the partnership of Bradley and Laundry Systems of the Carolinas.

Introduced in 2014, Store Owner of the Quarter recognizes Huebsch store owners who have excelled in entrepreneurism, technology adoption, innovation and superior customer and community service.

Tennessee Laundromat Owner Named Huebsch® Store Owner of the Quarter

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 

Tennessee Laundromat Owner Named Huebsch® Store Owner of the Quarter

 

RIPON, Wisconsin (December 19, 2016)Huebsch® commercial laundry equipment manufacturer, provider of unrivaled customer service through the industry’s top-rated distributor network, has named Mark Hickey the latest recipient of its Store Owner of the Quarter award. With the support and advice he received from his distributor, huebsch-img_1447and by replacing outdated machines with new durable Huebsch equipment, Hickey’s two Spin City laundromats have become very successful businesses.

“Hickey is an accomplished laundromat owner and is dedicated to providing quality customer service,” said Kathryn Rowen, Huebsch North American sales manager. “Hickey always puts his customers first and goes out of his way to make them feel welcome. We look forward to building this partnership with Hickey and watching his businesses continue to grow.”

Prior to investing in laundry, Hickey used his accounting degree to work his way up to treasury manager for Circuit City in Richmond, VA. In 2009 the company closed and he decided to move back to Memphis to be closer to his family and began researching potential investment opportunities that would provide a stable income during the recession.

Following his research, Hickey made the decision to purchase a laundromat and he turned to Mike Leake from Memphis-based Larry & Mike’s Laundry Services for guidance. Leake helped Hickey find and evaluate a number of existing laundromats that were available for sale, and Hickey purchased two stores – one in Millington, Tennessee and one in Horn Lake, Mississippi.

Hickey needed to replace some of the equipment right away and wanted tohuebsch-img_1439 feature a single brand of equipment in his stores. Leake recommended Huebsch equipment, due to the quality of the machines and the manufacturer’s dedication to providing an innovative suite of products.

“There were already a few Huebsch machines in my stores and they were more durable and efficient compared to the other equipment,” Hickey said. “Mike Leake helped advise me on the equipment, as well as many other important decisions I needed to make in order for my laundromats to succeed.”

A few years after acquiring his laundromats, Hickey decided he wanted to move his businesses to new buildings to improve the look and feel of his stores. Hickey worked closely with Huebsch Laundry Design services to determine the best layout for his stores, as well as Huebsch Financial to finance his equipment replacement in order to provide the best mix of machines for his customers.

Both new stores were designed to provide customers with plenty of space. Hickey also offers a variety of amenities to make the experience at the new Spin City stores more enjoyable, including free Wi-Fi, wash-dry-fold service and vending machines, as well as an ATM at the Horn Lake store.

“The existing customers are happy with the new locations and new  customers are drawn to huebsch-img_1430the businesses due to the extra space, amenities and Huebsch equipment,” shared Hickey.

With hard work and Leake’s industry expertise, Hickey has created an incredibly successful laundry business.

“Mike Leake really took me under his wing when I was getting started and I’m so grateful for his continued support over the years,” Hickey concluded. “He’s been a great partner.”

Friday, November 4th, 2016


 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

First-Time Laundromat Owner Named Huebsch® Store Owner of the Quarter

Store Owner Transforms Rundown Laundromat into Thriving Business with Support from Huebsch® Laundry Manufacturer & Equipment Distributor

 

RIPON, Wisconsin (November 4, 2016)Huebsch® commercial laundry equipment manufacturer, provider of unrivaled customer service through the industry’s top-rated distributor network, has named Tony El-Khouri the latest recipient

first-time-laundromat-tonyelkhouri of its Store Owner of the Quarter award. El-Khouri completely revamped the store he purchased in 2013 and turned Sun Valley Laundromat into a successful and flourishing business within a few short years.

“El-Khouri has a strong work ethic and is dedicated to creating a quality experience for his customers,” said Kathryn Rowen, North American sales manager for Huebsch. “El-Khouri put a lot of hard thought and work into creating the store he has today. From completely remodeling the interior to replacing every machine, all of the decisions he made were to benefit his customers. We’ve been honored to work with El-Khouri and his Huebsch equipment distributor, Laundry Equipment Services Inc. (LES), and we look forward to continuing our partnership in the years to come.”

El-Khouri, a computer networker, has worked in the technology industry for more than a decade. In 2007 he began thinking about other business ventures and after speaking with friends and family, he realized the potential benefits that owning a laundromat would provide.

 

Once El-Khouri made a decision to purchase a laundromat, he waited until hefirst-time-laundromat-img_0493 found the perfect location. In 2013, El-Khouri’s brother-in-law found a rundown store in Glen Burnie, Maryland and within a few months

El-Khouri purchased the laundromat, remodeled it, replaced the equipment and opened Sun Valley Laundromat for business.

Throughout this process El-Khouri not only had the support and help of his family, he also worked closely with Huebsch equipment distributor LES, based in Hagerstown, MD.

 

“LES has been great,” shared El-Khouri. “I chose to work with them due to their excellent customer service and equipment offering. The advice and guidance Cameron Clark and his team has provided me is invaluable and I am so grateful for their partnership.”

 

LES helped El-Khouri determine the perfect mix of equipment for his customers, and they have continued to be a resource for El-Khouri when it comes to running his business or educating him on his equipment. With the remodel and equipment replacement, Sun Valley Laundromat customers have been very happy since the revitalized laundromat reopened.

 

“My customers have been very pleased with the new laundromatfirst-time-laundromat-img_0482 and the Huebsch equipment, especially those who visited the previous store,” said El-Khouri. “Huebsch laundry manufacturer, Huebsch Financial and LES have all been wonderful partners and I know I will turn to them when the day comes to expand my business and open a new laundromat.”
