Pasadena Laundromat Owners Named Huebsch® Store Owner of the Quarter

Innovative Design and Advanced Equipment Lead to a Flourishing Business


RIPON, Wisconsin (July 20, 2016)Huebsch® commercial laundry equipment manufacturer, Huebsch-Image 1-001provider of unrivaled customer service through the industry’s leading distributor network, has named Aaron and Andrea Milam the latest recipients of its Store Owner of the Quarter award. The Milams own The Laundry Room, located in Pasadena, California.


“The Milams demonstrate exceptional dedication to providing customers with the best laundry experience possible,” said Kathryn Rowen, Huebsch North American sales manager. “Their ongoing commitment to customer service, as well as their innovative ideas and passion for continuously enhancing the aesthetics and technology in their store, have made them a great partner. We look forward to growing this partnership in the future and watching their business continue to succeed.”

Aaron and Andrea Milam first realized the potential investment opportunity a laundromat business could provide when they installed coin-operated laundry machines in their rental properties. After seeing the revenue stream it provided, in addition to increasing renter satisfaction, they decided to start looking into opening a laundromat.Huebsch-Image 2-002 After years of searching for the right property, the couple purchased an existing laundromat that was close to home, but in need of some remodeling.


After the Milams remodeled the laundromat and it had been in business for one year, they decided to replace their outdated equipment. They spoke with many different distributors but chose to work with Southern California-based ACE Commercial Laundry Equipment because of Sales Manager Andy Wray and Senior Sales Representative Rudy Munoz. The Milams worked closely with Wray and Munoz to select the best mix of Huebsch equipment for the store. Wray and Munoz were very personable and hands-on. They always made themselves available, not only during the equipment replacement, but they continue to support the Milams with any of their business needs. Additionally, the Milams used Huebsch Financial to help finance the new equipment.


“It was important for us to find the right partners for our laundromat business,” Aaron Milam said. “Our goal was to differentiate our store from others, and ACE was able to deliver the most efficient equipmentHuebsch-Image 3-003 and the best aesthetics while working within our replacement budget. ACE’s professionalism and knowledge of the industry was unparalleled, and they are truly invested in helping our laundromat grow and succeed.”

The couple also offers a “fluff and fold” wash-dry-fold service for local residents and businesses that has texting capabilities to notify customers when their orders are complete.

The Milams are dedicated to providing customers with efficient and innovative services, a comfortable environment and state-of-the-art equipment to create an enjoyable experience at The Laundry Room. Their commitment to always looking for ways to enhance their store, and ultimately their customers’ experiences, has earned them the title of Store Owner of the Quarter.

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. Read the Milam’s story, and others, at

 Speed Queen® Laundry Manufacturer Announces Launch of Art of the Journey Contest for a Chance to Win $100,000

Third Annual Contest Rewards Customers for Reinvesting in Innovative Laundry Equipment


Ripon, Wisconsin – (JULY 6, 2016)Speed Queen® laundry manufacturer, the world’s leading provider of commercial laundry equipment, is now accepting entries for its third annual contest which will pay off one deserving store owner’s replacement loan through Speed Queen Financial Services (SQFS), up to $100,000.


July 1st through October 31st, owners who reinvest in their laundromat with new, state-of-the-art Speed Queen equipment financed through SQFS will be eligible to enter the 2016 Speed Queen Art of the Journey contest. Once they have financed at least $2,500 in new Speed Queen equipment through SQFS, store owners can enter the contest by uploading an original piece of art – photo collage/montage, video, poem, drawing or painting – that showcases their unique laundry journey to the contest website.


“Our laundromat owners come from diverse walks of life and each have an interesting and valuable story to tell about their laundry journey,” said Jim Rosenthal, Speed Queen North American sales manager. “Upgrading outdated equipment with new, efficient machines featuring industry-leading technology will not only help reduce utilities, improve a store owner’s business operation and increase overall profitability, but owners will also have the opportunity to enter to win $100,000 through the Speed Queen Art of the Journey contest.”


The original piece of art should highlight the steps the laundromat owner has taken in their journey such as what they did before entering the industry, why they invested in laundry, how they have reinvested in their business, what role their business plays in the community and how the business has grown since opening.


In addition to awarding one grand prize winner, all qualifying entrants will receive a $100 gift certificate that can be used towards new equipment or parts purchases at an authorized Speed Queen distributor.


The 2016 Speed Queen Art of the Journey contest marks the third year the iconic brand has set out to reward its customers for seeing the value reinvesting can bring to their businesses.


Tyesha Offiong and her husband Emmanuel, who own A&Q Laundry Room in South River, New Jersey, won the $100,000 grand prize in 2015. When the Offiong’s purchased their laundromat the store was rundown and they knew they needed to replace the equipment in order to run a successful business, as well as provide the quality service to their community they desired. Shortly after replacing the equipment, they learned about the annual Speed Queen contest. To their surprise, the Offiong’s won the grand prize and it has helped their business in many ways, including accelerating their timeline for investing in their next laundromat.


Tyesha Offiong’s advice to owners considering entering this year’s contest is simple, “Just do it. We all have a unique journey and you’ll never know the value of yours unless you share it.”
