Area Business Leaders Network Over Breakfast and Cupcakes

Area Business Leaders Network Over Breakfast and Cupcakes

An early morning breakfast and networking event drew dozens of Chicago-area business leaders to the Garden City Business Center last week to learn how to hone their social media techniques and to gather with leaders of the Lawndale Business Renaissance Association and the Business Executives Association.

The event, co-hosted by Roscoe, along with the LBRA and BEA, included a panel discussion on "Growing Your Business Through Social Media." The panel included representatives of a jeans manufacturing company, an upscale cupcake bakery and a junk removal service, who described the range of strategies they employ for connecting with prospective and current customers on social media, along with techniques for dealing with negative reviews.

Industry & Community Leadership: Beyond the Bottom Line

Roscoe Corporate Social Responsibility

At Roscoe, we've worked hard to earn our reputation for providing high quality work uniform rentals and unmatched customer service.

But behind the scenes, we work just as hard to be a good neighbor to our community, a responsible steward of the environment and a leader to the industry.

There's more to running a business than the bottom line. Especially when the business is one your family founded three generations back. We are building something we can be proud to leave to the next generation, and a place where our employees will be proud to work, now – and a decade from now. We want to be an asset to our community – the community where we go to work, where our customers reside and the same community that our team members call home.

We know that's not something that can be accomplished just by talking about it, so here's what we've been up to recently.

How Roscoe Achieved Next-Level Work Uniform Quality

Technology & Teamwork Leave Roscoe Clients Looking Good

How Roscoe Achieved Next-Level Work Uniform Quality

At Roscoe, our state-of-the-art sorting system is an impressive piece of engineering. It automates the tracking of 3,000 garments an hour, sending, shirts, pants, jackets, and coats gliding along a system of overhead rails that can divert some items for repairs, while the rest speed along to be sorted by route, by customer and finally, by individual wearer.

The new system keeps garments perfectly spaced, preventing creases and wrinkles. It uses ultrahigh frequency (UHF) tags, which provide us – and our customers – same-day confirmation of every garment picked up for cleaning. Each garment is tracked from the day it is picked up to the day it is delivered, so we always know where your uniforms are.

Faster processing makes time for additional quality control, delivering garments ready for inspection one day sooner than under the previous sorting system. Here's how it works.
