Potawatomi Hotel & Casino has chosen Racine-based Imperial Laundry Services to launder the linens from its new 19-story hotel, which opened Monday.

The contract with Potawatomi allowed Imperial to hire 20 new employees and purchase about $1 million in new equipment to meet the demand.

Imperial will wash about 1.5 million pounds of linen from the 381-room hotel each year, making it one of the laundry service’s largest hotel accounts. The company works with several hotels and hospitals in the area.

“After touring the new Potawatomi hotel, it was apparent to us that the rooms, amenities and service to be offered would rival or exceed those of other luxury hotels,” said Gregg Salomone, president of ILS. “With that in mind, we are extremely proud to have been chosen as the vendor for the processing of guest room linen.”

“This is a great example of the impact Potawatomi Hotel & Casino is making on the economy of southeastern Wisconsin,” said Mike Goodrich, general manager of Potawatomi Hotel & Casino. “The size and scope of our business has translated into success for our vendors and the businesses they work with, as well.”
