Marcus Hotels & Resorts’ business unit positioned to double capacity
MILWAUKEE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 19, 2016--
Hotels & Resorts, a nationally recognized hotel owner and
management company and division of The
Marcus Corporation (NYSE: MCS), today announced that its Wisconsin
Hospitality Linen Service (WHLS) business unit has completed a $2.3
million expansion that will enable it to double its current capacity.
WHLS provides commercial laundry services for Marcus Hotels & Resorts’
Wisconsin properties, as well as for other hotels in the Midwest.
“WHLS currently processes approximately 10 million pounds of linen each
year, including sheets, towels and restaurant linens. The new equipment,
including an additional washer, dryers and finishing lines, will
position us to double our capacity over the next five years,” said Tom
Mason, senior vice president of Marcus Hotels & Resorts, who oversees
“Many hotels prefer to outsource their laundry services to a third
party. As the only central laundry facility in the area that is owned
and operated by a hospitality company, we understand the needs and
challenges of the industry,” added Mason.
WHLS has been the area leader in commercial laundry services for the
hospitality industry for over 20 years. The business was founded by
Marcus Hotels & Resorts in 1995 and has operated at its current 32,000
square foot facility near the Milwaukee airport since 2001.
