Local Business Success

High class ironing, based in Queniborough has grown substantially after a phone call back in September when an opportunity arose. An agency that deals with putting businesses in touch with others in the same type of work, contacted High Class Ironing to ask if they would be interested in taking over customers from another business who wanted to retire.
These types of opportunities don’t arise every day, so naturally, the owners of High Class Ironing said yes without realising just how many customers and so grew to three times the size within a month! The main area of business they have acquired is to service linen, towels etc for hotels, Bed and Breakfast and serviced apartments. Due to the rapid growth they have invested in new machinery, employed two extra part-time staff and added extra shifts so that the working day has elongated from 7.00am – 5.00pm to 7.00am – 8.00pm.
Quite a challenge for John and Sam, but they have made such a success in taking over this extra business they are now being approached by other hospitality outlets.
This is extra to their core business which has not been affected by the growth in the service trade to the hospitality outlets and both John and Sam said that it will not change. They are maintaining the same quality of service to all customers which is probably why they are being approached by more potential customers.
What an amazing success for one of our small local business and we wish them every success and hope they continue to grow.
